EU sources -Massive protests against TTIP -October 14, 2015

A broad coalition of civil society organisations, including trade unions, has organised massive protests mobilised against the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. In Berlin more than 250,000 people protested, making it the biggest manifestation the country has seen in decades. The opponents argue that the deals give too much power to multinational companies at the expense of consumers and workers. Supporters of the deal, which lowers trade barriers, say it would boost economies and create jobs.
