Withdraw the mandate to negotiate TTIP
Aktion Freiheit statt Angst has signed a petition to the EU council demanding to stop the TTIP negotiations. The council has no longer a mandat from the people.
Dear members of the European Council,
On the occasion of your meeting on 28 June 2016, we, the undersigned civil society organisations, ask you to heed the calls of the people of Europe and withdraw the mandate for the European Commission to negotiate the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), with immediate effect.
We agree with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker that the time has come for European Union heads of state “to have a new discussion on where we are and where we want to get with these negotiations”.i
However, we believe that the result of this discussion must reflect the repeated demands of European people that negotiations on TTIP be halted.
More than 3.4 million people across the continent have signed a self-organised European Citizens’ Initiative against TTIP and CETA, joining non-governmental organisations and trade unions across the continent in outright opposition to this deal – opposition also clearly reflected in unprecedented mobilisations across Europe. Additionally, more than 150,000 people took part in an EU consultation on ISDS with 97% clearly stating that they do not want any investment dispute settlement mechanism in TTIP. Nevertheless, the Commission has proposed a slightly revised mechanism that does not address the key flaws and dangers of ISDS.
People across the continent have a greater awareness of trade deals than at any previous time. Any move to express renewed support for TTIP will be highly publicised and scrutinised across Europe. We therefore appeal to you to use this opportunity to heed public opinion and urgently withdraw the mandate for TTIP.
