Saying ‘No’ to TTIP – Saving the NHS

Saying NO to TTIP

Saying NO to TTIP

Party members have joined with trade unionists, the Peoples NHS NI group and other concerned individuals in a protest at the European Commission office in Belfast  against the secret  transatlantic trade deal – TTIP. (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership)

TTIP has its sights set on a number of public services, especially the NHS. One of the main aims of TTIP is to open up Europe’s public health, education and water services to US companies.

This could essentially mean the privatisation of the NHS.

Under the terms of TIPP international companies and corporations would also be able to sue governments if they make public policy decisions which could harm their future profits. Regulation which currently protects people, public services and the environment could be removed.
