Take action now to break the media silence on TTIP

Last month 250 people, including MPs and trade union leaders, were arrested in Brussels while peacefully protesting against TTIP. But this was not covered by the UK mainstream media.

We can beat the media blackout. The UK’s most read print news source is our 1,100 local papers. Please write to your local editor to make sure people in your area hear about TTIP.

TTIP is being negotiated in secret – clearly, policy makers do not want people to know what they are planning to do to our environment, our public services, and our democracy. If we want to beat this undemocratic deal, we need to make sure that the public knows about TTIP and the impact it would have on our lives.

Local papers are read by more than 30 million people in the UK every day. Please take action to make sure people hear about TTIP.
