Rally to Expose the Transatlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA)
Wednesday, May 21 * 10:00am
George Mason Law School * 3351 Fairfax Dr * Arlington, VA
Trade negotiators from the United States and Europe will be gathering just outside Washington, DC this month to push forward the next big trade deal, the Transatlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) – also known as TTIP.
From the safety standards on which we rely daily for our food, medicines and cars to the energy and climate policies needed to save our planet to the new financial regulations designed to prevent banks from gambling with our money and creating another crisis – safeguards increase our quality of life. Yet today these vital public protections are at stake.
On May 21st, EU and US negotiators will host a forum to hear from ‘stakeholders’ — gather with us outside this forum to EXPOSE TAFTA and SAVE OUR SAFEGUARDS! Get all the latest announcements on the rally by RSVPing at: http://bit.ly/taftarally
