TTIP tip-off

Leaked documents from the European Union's negotiations with the United States over privatisation treaty TTIP have confirmed its neoliberal character.

Climate campaign group Greenpeace got hold of 248 pages of the secret documents. The US wants to downgrade rules requiring firms to prove potentially harmful consumer products are safe. And promised efforts to limit carbon emissions also seem to be absent.

But the central danger is still TTIP establishing unaccountable corporate courts, which can overrule states which act against privatisation. This is, of course, just an extension of the EU's non-reformable, undemocratic, anti-worker treaties and laws.

Voting to leave the EU would set TTIP back, and send shockwaves through the unelected command of the bosses' EU.
