VoteWatch Europe: European Parliament, Council of the EU #ISDS #TTIP #TAFTA

The European Parliament this week adopted the Zalewski report on the distribution of responsibilities between the EU and its member states on the ‪#‎ISDS‬ (Investment to State Dispute Settlement) mechanism. A majority of MEPs voted in favour of this report, thereby endorsing their support for the ISDS mechanism of the EU-US free trade deal (‪#‎TTIP‬/‪#‎TAFTA‬), a mechanism that will make it possible for corporations to sue states in undemocratic offshore tribunals.

You can see here how your MEP voted - http://bit.ly/1mgUfbA. MEPs who voted in favour of this report need to be booted out in May, so please vote wisely.

Leaked European Commission PR strategy: "Communicating on TTIP"

CEO has today published a leaked version of the European Commission's communication strategy for overcoming public skepticism about the controversial EU-US trade negotiations, the so-called Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). The document was discussed at a meeting with EU member states on Friday 22 November. In order to "reduce fears and avoid a mushrooming of doubts", the Commission proposes to "further localise our communication effort at Member State level in a radically different way to what has been done for past trade initiatives".

TTIP: Unfounded attack on CEO

Yesterday Corporate Europe Observatory published a leaked document which carried a specific proposal from the European Commission on how to deal with “regulation” in the TTIP negotiations (the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, a trade agreement being negotiated between the European Union and the United States). The document shows how the Commission envisions the future development of common regulations, whether over food standards, environmental rules or consumer rights.
