This Saturday 38 Degrees members and #Derbyuk People’s Assembly supporters will be encouraging other people to add their names to the EU-wide petition against TTIP

Hello  Friend

As you may well be aware this Saturday 38 Degrees supporters are organising activities throughout the UK, spreading the word about TTIP, the dangerous trade deal between Europe and America.

38 Degrees members and Peoples Assembly supporters will be encouraging other people to add their names to the EU-wide petition against TTIP. It’s already got over 2.3 million signatures!:

All the activities are taking place between 11:am and 1:00 pm.  Please support the event where you can.

  • outside the GUILDHALL, in the Market Place, opposite the Telephone boxes.
  • DE1 3AH
  • /events/2665

Note we have shifted our main Derby activity from the corner of St Peter’s St and East Street, to outside the GUILDHALL, in the Market Place, opposite the Telephone boxes. We have moved because the authorities have given us permission to park the 38 Degrees ambulance here.

We will have the ambulance for the first hour, and we have blank placards etc.

This will be the primary 38 D activity for Derby North and South, but does not preclude other activities.

38 Degrees: TTIP: Who voted for what?
https://home.38degrees.org.uk/2015/07/08/ttip-who-voted-for-what/
MEPs voted on a set of recommendations about TTIP. It’s not a legally binding vote, but gives a clear signal to the European Commission who are negotiating the deal with the US that they can keep going.

We hope to see you soon!
