Anti-TTIP Protest in Bristol Today to Defend NHS – Beastrabban\’s Weblog

The internet petitioning organisation, 38 Degrees, is organising a protest in Bristol today against the TTIP and the privatisation of the NHS, writes the Beast.

The TTIP is the proposed international trade agreement, which would give businesses the right to sue national governments if they passed legislation that harmed their profits. It is feared that this will be used to lock in Cameron’s continuing privatisation of the NHS.

This is a real threat, as the Independent revealed last week that one of the big American healthcare giants wanted to expand into the UK. The BBC also received leaked documents showing that the NHS has not been excluded from the TTIP.

38 Degrees are meeting to encourage people to sign a petition requesting that MPs oppose the TTIP.

    What I find strange is why we have to sign this as it isn’t in the british interest to sign at all. when we sell goods to them and they to us why change it? it’s only for big yankee companies who can give huge backhanders to the tories whilst they sell us out jeff3

    What’s left to sell? Gideon(Ooozebum) is flogging us all into slavery…what’s the odds that after 4,000 years in slavery, another shagging Moses will pop up with another slave morality religion.
