Trade Justice

Trade Justice Movement taking action against the EU’s free trade agenda

The Trade Justice Movement (TJM) and its members are targeting the EU Commissioner for Trade, Catherine Ashton, and all prospective MEPs in a new campaign which aims to bring about a full scale re-think of the EU’s trade policy. TJM states that new free trade deals being negotiated by Europe will harm the poorest and most vulnerable people in Africa, Asia and Latin America, destroying jobs, livelihoods and local industries, and increasing environmental exploitation. Developing countries, they say, must be given the flexibility to use economic policies that benefit people and the environment, not big business.

Please follow this link to learn more about the campaign and to take part in TJM’s e-action to Commissioner Ashton, asking her to turn European Trade policy around.

The TJM has also put together a lobby pack outlining how you can call on candidates in the upcoming EU elections to act to stop unfair trade deals.
