SURROUND THE EUROPEAN BUSINESS SUMMIT
WE WILL NOT LET BIG BUSINESS DICTATE EUROPEAN POLITICS !
NO TO AUSTERITY*!
NO THE GREAT TRANSATLANTIC MARKET (TTIP**) !
DEMOCRACY FROM BELOW !
The D19-20 Alliance brings together farmers, citizens, workers, unemployed, artists, trade unions, NGOs, not-for-profits, activists etc. struggling against austerity policies* and the ‘Great Transatlantic Market’ (the EU-US free trade deal, or ‘TTIP’**) pushed by Karel de Gucht, EU Commissioner for Trade. As active members of Belgian civil society, we are determined to build and maintain a counterbalance against the attacks by the European Union on all parts of the population.
15 May 2014: Democracy in Danger!
This May 15, Europe’s biggest businesses have invited our political leaders (Karel de Gucht, Didier Reynders, Guy Verhofstadt, Kris Peeters etc.) to the Egmont palace for the ‘European Business Summit’. The organisers of this great lobbying jamboree have stated their goal: to influence European leaders a few days before the elections.
The ‘Transatlantic Partnership’ (TTIP**) will be at the heart of the debate. Negotiated away from democratic scrutiny, refusing to meet those who oppose it, Karel de Gucht’s ears are open exclusively to big business, who see this treaty as an unmissable opportunity to increase their power within the EU.
We won’t let them!
This May 15, from 8am, Surround the Egmont Palace!
