Subject:Let's stop TTIP!

Margaret,

In 9 days we will hand-deliver your signatures against TTIP and CETA to the European Commission — and we’re only 80,000 signatures short of 3,000,000. You may have shared the European Citizens' Initiative before, but this is the last time I’ll ask you before we head to Brussels. Please share on Facebook with a message to let your friends know about the deadline.

EmailForward the email below to at least five of your friends.

Thanks for all that you do,
Wiebke and and the team at SumOfUs

Europe and North America are currently negotiating two trade deals that could turn out to be the biggest corporate power grabs in history -- TTIP and CETA. The treaties read like a corporate wish-list: courts that let corporations sue our governments, the removal of environmental and health regulation and the degradation of working standards.

The big losers of the deals: ordinary people, like you and me.

Hundreds of corporate lobbyists and government officials thought it would be easy to push these massive trade deals through. But we weren’t taking the biggest corporate power grabs in history laying down.

We teamed up with more than 450 partner organisations all across the European Union to form a self-organised, EU-wide citizens’ initiative ‘Stop TTIP’. With over 2.9 million signatures, we have become the largest European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) ever. And now we are about to hand-deliver these millions of signatures to the European Commission.

Will you sign up to help stop TTIP and CETA?

Here's that link -- please sign and share the ECI: http://action.sumofus.org/a/stop-ttip-eci/
