There are many reasons to oppose the planned “>Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), not least because references to ‘free’ in the text of leaked drafts does not refer to freedom in any conventional sense but to giving global corporations the ability to operate outside the jurisdiction of sovereign governments and override national law.
TTIP isdesigned to make corportate capitalism the only permissible system in both the US and the European Union. It is being negotiated in a secretive and anti-democratic fashion; not even the elected members of national governments will be allowed to know what is in it before they are required to vote on it. (And as when the European Union’s integration framework was voted down, you can bet if our lawmakers, in the public interest, vote down this step towards global tyranny the bureaucratic Nazi shits who are promoting it will say, “Wrong answer – vote again.”

These corporate pirates have even had representatives involved in the negotiations which are supposed to be a government level but from which elected members of governments have been excluded.
The latest information to leak out of the negotistions suggests a way is being sought to extended the treaty to include Israel.
Israel enjoys an extremely close trading relationship with the EU. A deal approved by the European Parliament in 2012 paves the way for Israel to be integrated into the Union’s single market for goods and services.
The idea that Israel would be eligible to join TTIP is being mulled over by the cognoscenti in both Brussels and Washington.

TTIP in the EU: Rejecting Democracy
Trade deals have traditionally been about lowering particular tariffs for imports and exports of goods from one country to another. Trade is not as simple as that any more and for TTIP tariffs are a tiny part of the negotiations because tariffs between the EU and US are virtually non-existent these days. Trade in TTIP is about issues that are relevant and important to us all: from which services are publicly provided, to the safety of the food on our plates
