TTIP PUBLIC MEETING

To all members and supporters of the UCU London Retired Members Branch

6.30pm, Mon 17th March at UNITE’s building
128 Theobalds Rd Holborn (next to Holborn Hotel)
 Fancy chlorinated chicken, hormone beef and pork, Genetically Modified (GM) food and endocrine disrupting pesticides on your veg?
All this is on the menu with the US/EU free trade agreement (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership-TTIP), in exchange for deregulated financial services and privatised public services - which you probably didn’t want either.
 Hear food and trade experts explain how this secretive so-called ‘trade’ deal threatens our food supply - because knowledge is power.
Free event.
