Big anti-TTIP, CETA demonstration in Amsterdam

Anti-TTIP and CETA demonstration in Amsterdam today

Today, over 8,000 people demonstrated on the Museumplein square in Amsterdam, the Netherlands against the TTIP and CETA trade deals, planned between the European Union, the USA and Canada.

The demonstration was by the trade union federation FNV, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, the Dutch Consumers’ Union, the Dutch Dairymen Board and other farmers, and others.

The demonstrators expressed their solidarity with the government of Wallonia. They refuse to sign the CETA deal, which means the Belgian federal government cannot sign it, which means that the European Union cannot sign it.

PLUCKY Walloons stood firm against the weight of Canada and Europe yesterday, refusing to accept the secretive Ceta free trade pact: here.

A two-day European Union (EU) summit ended yesterday in Brussels without agreement on the war in Syria, the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) with Canada, or Britain’s exit from the EU: here.
