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.

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.
