To mark the International Day of Action on Trade on Saturday 10th Oct, 9.30am-10am at the SECC in Glasgow, colleagues from the Scotland Against TTIP coalition are gathering to make some noise and get the message across – Stop TTIP!
Come along and join in – bring a placard, bring a friend or just bring your righteous anger against TTIP!
Scotland Against TTIP coalition will be gathering at 9:30am outside the SECC to make as much noise as possible at 10am, with the aim of getting a bit of media attention. They will have their giant petition to celebrate the enormous number of signatures on the European Citizens Initiative, and their corporate puppeteers will be there too. More on this event here.

The deal is known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP. Find out more about TTIP here.
