Last week I did an interview on Radio Free Brighton with Davy Jones, the Green Party parliamentary candidate for Brighton Kemptown, about the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, abbreviated TTIP. It's 30 minutes long and summarises what TTIP is and why it threatens to undermine our hard fought for environmental, social, consumer and labour standards in Europe.
This week Davy Jones talks to Susanne Schuster about the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership proposal, what it means and what the consequences are likely to be if it gets accepted. The European Union and the USA are in talks for the TTIP. The expressed intention is to establish a transatlantic free trade area TAFTA between the countries of the EU and the US. Susanne works with the World Development Movement who strongly oppose TTIP and see it as prioritising corporations and their investors over the health of people, the environment and the economy.
