For over two years now, the US and the European Union are negotiating a new free trade agreement (TTIP). What is discussed exactly, we don’t know; the negotiations are held in secret. But what are the consequences for the Netherlands, for European employees and for the environment? Big companies really want this free trade agreement, but what’s in it for the rest of us? How rose-tinted is the bigger picture? Or how bleak? Come to the BIG TTIP debate on the 17th of April and know it all!
