EU-US trade deal The interests of people and the planet must be put before the interests of big business

28 November 2016

Joint Statement : 455 European and Canadian civil society groups call for rejection of CETA

We, the undersigned civil society organisations from Canada and Europe, hereby express our deep concern about the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the EU and Canada. During the long process of the deal's negotiations and legal check, we repeatedly pointed out major problems with the CETA text.

Austria, Belgium (Flanders and Brussels), Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Malta, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden

The US-EU trade deal is a Trojan horse treaty; a dangerous deal that puts big business ahead of our society, health and environment.


Together we can stop this Trojan horse treaty unravelling our hard-won standards, and act to put people and the planet before profits.
