Protestors in Brixton are lobbying local government authorities to oppose The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
This partnership is a treaty for free trade and investment and is currently undergoing hushed negotiations between the US and EU.
The aim of the treaty is to remove regulatory barriers which restrict trade profits and campaigners believe that these ‘barriers’ would include banking safeguards, environmental regulations and labour rights.
There is further concern that the new markets proposed by the treaty would mean the privatisation of crucial public services including the NHS.
Civil society groups are joining parliamentarians and others to stop pro-business government officials from signing away such vital public services.
