Please release the full text of TTIP, like you have done in Australasia.
We demand that you release the full text of TTIP, like you have done with TPPA.
Why is this important?
Last night, the full 6000 page TPPA treaty was released online for the general public. The trans-pacific partnership is a trade agreement signed by 12 Pacific Rim countries, and it is very much their version of TTIP, our agreement between the US and Europe.
Although the deals text has been 'agreed to', it is still under scrutiny and has not been signed.
In the wake of its release, I demand that TTIP's full text also be released.
Whatever bargaining power and 'holding our cards close' techniques the negotiators were using, is now irrelevant. In the name of transparency and democracy, this document should be available for us all to see.
Its a shame we have to make this demand in the first place. This document should have been public from the moment it began being negotiated. But now that TPPA is in public domain, TTIP should also be published.
We demand that you publish the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership in its entirety, available for translation and with no chapters censored.
Thanks very much.
