Join Stéphanie Roth, campaign coordinator of the European Initiative ‘Stop TTIP,’ and Local Futures’ Director Helena Norberg-Hodge, for an eye-opening discussion about “free trade” treaties that exposes some of their lesser known effects and outlines strategic alternatives.
For decades, governments and big business have negotiated trade treaties that have steadily shifted power from nation states to global corporations, decimating democracy, local economies and communities, while systematically lowering social and environmental standards.
But opposition is growing. People are waking up to the “free trade” issue and the fact that it concerns us all. Wherever your focus lies – social justice, worker’s rights, climate change, food and farming, animal welfare, community health, environmental protection – it’s time to get “trade literate” and take part in the resistance against a destructive system that only benefits the 1%.
