I would like to inform your affiliates about our newest study, (in English and German) written by Mike Dolan, on U.S. based campaigns against the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

There is soon to be an important debate in the U.S. Congress about international commerce and democratic values. Administration free traders and big business lobbyists are pushing for Fast Track legislation in order to conclude negotiations and ratify both of these “partnerships.”

In his study, TPP and TTIP: Partners in Crime. Fighting the Corporate “Trade” Agenda in the United States, Mike Dolan, vice-president of the Citizens’ Trade Campaign, takes stock of rising U.S. opposition, which brings together labor, environmental activists, consumers, faith-based groups, and family farmers.

He identifies key players, interests, and lines of defense, and outlines a strategy to prevent the passage of “trade” agreements that in practice threaten to kill jobs, undermine labor standards and environmental regulations, limit access to generic drugs, and even exempt corporations from the judicial process.
