Students Against TTIP
Students Against TTIP (SATTIP) is a network of young activists and campaigners from across the UK determined to stop TTIP and challenge the growing corporate control of our society. We think TTIP (the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) and other deals like it are an outrageous assault on our democracy. They represent the interests of corporations over those of the public,
In February 2015, over 100 campaigners from the UK travelled to Brussels, to protest against the eighth round of TTIP negotiations that were taking place there, directly challenging the architects of this deal. The trip brought together a number of young people from across the UK who had been campaigning against the deal. Students Against TTIP was born out of this encounter to strengthen and coordinate resistance across the UK, and act as a vehicle to mobilise more young people to the cause.
Not a student? No worries! There are a number of people in SATTIP who aren't students! Click here to find out more.
Stopping TTIP and CETA are our urgent and immediate goals. But this is only the beginning. The SATTIP network aims to outlive this particular corporate power grab. It will continue to mobilise and support young people to understand, criticise and resist the unjust global economic system that underlies these trade deals. In this way, we hope to play our part in movements to turn the tables on the neoliberal elites orchestrating them. We envision a future where new era trade deals like TTIP and CETA are remembered as the tipping point, the catalyst for building a truly alternative, democratic global economic regime.
