162 organisations from across Europe have today called for European trade policy to be made more democratic.

Their statement was handed over to European Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström at the first meeting of a newly established expert group on EU trade agreements.

The US-EU trade deal and EU-Canada trade deals are Trojan horse treaties; dangerous deals that put big business ahead of our society, health and environment.


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