CETA: we won't allow our democracy to be undermined!
We succeeded: thanks to strong pressure by public opinion, CETA will now need to be debated and approved in our national parliaments in order to be ratified and come into force at the European level.
Of course, this is but a single battle in the wider fight against the dangers posed by commercial treaties such as TTIP and CETA. Among these dangers, it is the creation of exclusive tribunals where corporations will be able to to sue governments if they were to pass laws that allegedly reduce corporations’ expected profits. If these extended powers are granted to corporations, chances are that our governments will not dare to pass laws to protect your labour rights, your privacy or even your health.
