CETA CHECK 2.0 trailer
CETA CHECK Trailer
No ano passado, com a sua ajuda, conseguimos angariar 3.5 milhões de assinaturas para a nossa Iniciativa de Cidadania Europeia STOP TTIP & CETA. Infelizmente, a Comissão Europeia e os governos dos membros da UE não a tiveram em consideração e vão avançar ainda mais com os procedimentos acelarados do CETA, o tratado comercial com o Canadá. Desta vez, decidimos tornar as coisas mais diretas e, por isso, fomos a Estrasburgo para perguntar aos MPE qual a sua posição em relação ao CETA. E o que é mais importante, estamos a dar-vos também a oportunidade de fazer o mesmo! Vá a www.cetacheck.eu e envie as suas questões diretamente para a caixa de correio do seu MPE!

ISDS – A corporate system of injustice
ISDS (Investor- State Dispute Settlement) is intended to be included in TTIP and CETA. In less than three 3 minutes this great video by Campact! explains ISDS and shows how if pushed through it will pose a serious threat to our democracy and public money, to our environment and social rights.
What is TTIP?
