TTIP: BUILDING THE FIGHTBACK

21 March 2015 - 1:00pm
Event

THE 2015 NATIONAL GATHERING ON TTIP!

 2015 is the pivotal year for TTIP. Join us in Manchester for this major national gathering of anti-TTIP groups from around the country, and help build the movement against this dangerous trade deal. The conference will focus on the next steps to get TTIP off the table. This deal will result in over a million lost jobs, tear up the food safety regulations that keep us safe from toxic chemicals and genetically modified ingredients, scrap digital safety laws and throw new banking regulations out of the window. TTIP offers a nightmare vision of the future, and we must resist it. This event will be a major public demonstration of our commitment to a fairer world, and we really hope to see you there.

War on Want patron Omar Barghouti enters fourth day of interrogation by Israeli authorities

22 March 2017 - 5:30pm

This repressive treatment of Omar Barghouti and other Palestinian human rights defenders shows that Israel is cementing its system of violence and discrimination towards Palestinians. The repression of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activists only proves why it is so necessary in the first place, and will only make the movement grow more.
