TTIP threatens every piece of public health and environmental legislation we have. If agreed, the EU-US Trade Deal (TTIP) would grant corporations the power to sue governments that don't allow harmful industries like fracking. It threatens to lock-in the privatisation of our schools and NHS. Rules that protect workers, the environment, food safety, digital rights and privacy would be undermined.
