Trade The interests of people and the planet must be put before the interests of big business

27 September 2017

A new game released today sheds light on the murky EU-Canada trade deal (CETA), days after it came into force – provisionally. A large number of citizens struggle to know what CETA actually means for them and what can be done to stop the deal, which still lacks approval from most EU member state parliaments. The mobile and desktop game 'Dodgy Deals' lets players face some of the dangerous features of trade deals like CETA and shows what is at stake.

The controversial CETA trade deal between Canada and the European Union has largely come into force today amid sharp criticism from Friends of the Earth Europe. The early implementation – known as 'provisional application' – comes even though most national parliaments have not yet begun to debate or vote on the deal. [1]

The US-EU trade deal and EU-Canada trade deals are Trojan horse treaties; dangerous deals that put big business ahead of our society, health and environment.

 

Together we can stop these Trojan horse treaties unravelling our hard-won standards, and act to put people and the planet before profits.
