Protesters storm eu building to try to stop the Canada CETA deal being signed

The path to the agreement was rather thorny, with massive protests breaking out in a number of European countries, including France, Germany, Poland, Spain, and others.


The CETA deal is believed to pave way for a larger EU deal with the United States, known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Treaty (TTIP), which has long been objected to by labor unions and environmental activists.

CETA supporters claim the treaty will boost Canadian-EU trade by 20 percent, with Canada's economy increasing its performance by $9 billion, and the bloc by $13 billion.

At the same time, Canada is hoping to reduce the degree it depends on the export market of its neighbor, the US.

Critics of both CETA and TTIP focus their attention on the mechanism designed to protect foreign companies' investments, pointing out its flaws. Multinational companies are likely to abuse the deals' provision for arbitration panels to rule on disputes, and start dictating public policy, including environmental standards.

The EU and Canada, however, shrugged off the objections, saying that the investment protection system stipulates the governments' right to regulate, turn to independent judges, and be more transparent.

So... this deal removes the rights of govts to legislate over corporations...and TTIP will be doing the same for usa corporations...


And some idiots still support being in the eu!!!


I'm glad were leaving and it can't come quick enough!!!
