    TTIP NEGOTIATIONS

    Our daily bread is at the mercy of the powerful: no other lobby group has manipulated the TTIP negotiations as much as the agri-food industry has. Ahead of the sixth round of negotiations, left parliamentarians and civil society are once more protesting against the trade deal. Particularly in light of current NSA and German intelligence service scandals, one of our fundamental criticisms is that TTIP threatens citizens’ right to protect their data. We demand an end to the negotiations and support the citizens’ initiative against TTIP.
