Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson is set to speak at a public meeting in Craigavon tonight on opposition to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.

Speaking ahead of a public meeting in Craigavon, Ms Anderson said;

“The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is one of the largest and most controversial pieces of legislation to ever come through the European Parliament.

“It would undermine democracy by allowing major international companies to ride roughshod over the democratic decision of the EU.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to address a meeting of the Craigavon and District Council of Trade Unions alongside Rev Chris Hudson to discuss our opposition to TTIP.

“This legislation is causing anger across Europe as more and more people realise how far reaching the implications of TTIP could be.

“In recent days we saw tens of thousands of people taking to the streets of Berlin to protest against this unfair legislation.

“Sinn Féin have been to the fore of the campaign against TTIP in Europe and we will continue to oppose any moves which threaten workers rights, agriculture, food safety and potentially people’s health.”
