TTIP. It's an extremely important newsworthy story and yet you don't actually hear much about it in the news. So what is TTIP? Well stands for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, a fancy name for a terrible trade deal between the EU and the US.
If we don't beat it, big business will be able to sue our government for protecting people and the planet, and the privatisation of the NHS and public services will be irreversible.
Business Minister Vince Cable's department is in charge of TTIP in the UK. He'll decide what we sign up to - he could make or break the deal. He needs to know that we see him personally responsible for protecting our NHS and from stopping big business from walking all over our government. If he hears how important TTIP is to the public, he may do the right thing.
Please sign this petition here to stop privatisation, now.
