London rally – Rise Up Against TTIP!

Event

Event date: Saturday 10 October 2015 at 1830

Location: Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, London W1R 4RL

October 6 marks one year since the #NoTTIP movement launched one of the most successful petitions seen in Europe – the European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) against TTIP.

TTIP , the secretly negotiated EU-US Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, has sparked a surging people power movement in the UK and Europe.

(from left) Green Party leader Nathalie Bennett, actor Juliet Stevenson and Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer John McDonnell MP will all speak at Rise Up Against TTIP.

Across the continent, people are outraged at TTIP’s assault on our social, health and environmental protections, privatisation of our public services and use of 'corporate courts' so big business can sue European governments for policies affecting their profits. Thousands have taken to the streets of Europe to protest since the deal was announced in 2013. Almost 3 million people, including almost 500,000 in the UK, have signed the ECI against the trade deal.

Join War on Want and its allies for a London #NoTTIP rally with an inspiring line up of speakers at 1830 on Saturday 10 October, at Conway Hall. Green Party leader Nathalie Bennett, actor Juliet Stevenson (Artists Against TTIP) and Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer John McDonnell MP are among those already confirmed to speak.

It’s a free event on 10 October 2015, at 1830. You can sign up here and share by clicking here.

BDS is a legitimate means of protest against human rights abuse, says War on Want

27 April 2017 - 12:15pm

Campaigning for BDS is a legitimate means of protest, a fact that has been affirmed time and time again by bodies such as the European Union. It’s effectiveness is one of the main reasons why there is an organised campaign led by the Israeli government to shut it down. Students have every right to use their democratic rights to organise and exercise freedom of expression, and should be applauded for calling out violations of international law and human rights abuse.
