Public meeting: Make trade work for us all

25 January 2018 - 12:30pm
Event

Join War on Want and Global Justice Now for a critical public event focused on the UK Trade Bill – and our urgent need to ensure trade democracy in Brexit trade deals.

 

When: Monday 5 February  at 7pm (please arrive early - spaces are limited)

Where: Autograph ABP/Rivington Place Art Gallery, Rivington Place, London, EC2A 3BA

Speakers including Shadow Secretary of State for International Trade, Barry Gardiner MP, and Green Party Co-Leader Caroline Lucas MP, will explain how the Trade Bill is a critical piece of legislation which ties into everything from food safety, to our fight against climate change and the future of industrial policy and public services like the NHS.

The Government is already engaged in secret talks for a trade deal with the USA. But, as it stands, the Trade Bill contains no measures for insuring greater parliamentary involvement in scrutinising trade deals after Brexit. Join use to find out why we must fight for trade democracy.
