The Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a very sinister trade deal currently being discussed in great secrecy. It is a deal that would give the multi national global corporations the legal power to sue individual governments for millions of pounds if that government took action that affected their profits.
It would for example encourage US health care companies to sue any future British government if it tried to stop the privatisation of the NHS. Similarly with the railways.
Last Saturday over a million leaflets were given out across the country by around 9,000 volunteers but it would appear that there was little or no publicity about this in the papers or on the TV.
