Image: David Cameron is pushing to implement the free trade deal CETA without parliamentary consent. Ask your MSPs to take a stand against this attack on democracy.
CETA (the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement) is a trade pact between the EU and Canada. Like its more well-known brother TTIP (the US-EU pact), CETA will give big business sweeping new legal and political powers. It will give foreign corporations the power to sue governments in special ‘courts’ for actions which damage their profits. And it also threatens to lock in lower standards and weaken regulation.

Image: UK Parliamentary Debate on TTIP This should give us encouragement to keep campaigning!
Sheila Gilmore (Edinburgh East) (Lab): Had it not been for a great deal of campaigning, I suspect that we would not have been able to debate either TTIP or many other things. The hon. Member for Skipton and Ripon (Julian Smith) suggested that there has been plenty of parliamentary debate of this issue.
