Films about trade across the Pond

The biggest free trade deal in history is being negotiated now. If it goes ahead, which it probably will, this will be the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the European Union (EU) and the United States of America (USA).

Dry politics, perhaps, but it’s worth thinking about the TTIP because we’re all living on this Earth.

Here’s a film in which activists from both sides of the Pond explain why, in their opinions, the TTIP is dangerous. They say that the TTIP would give too much power to big corporations.

Here’s another film in which European activists take us on ‘a journey through the lobby jungle in Brussels.’

I’m grateful to bilaterals.org (‘Everything that’s not happening in the World Trade Organization’) for drawing attention to these informative, watchable films.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
