17 April: Lobby Action tour on TTIP, Food and Farming
- April 17 : Via Campesina International Day of Peasant Struggle
- April 18 : Global Day of Action against free trade agreements
As part of the global mobilisations on the impacts of “free” trade agreements such as TTIP, CETA and TPP, Via Campesina, the Alliance D19-20 and CEO invite you to join a lobby tour on Friday 17 April through the Brussels EU quarter.
The tour will inform you about the impacts of TTIP and other free trade agreements on food, agriculture and farmers. We will visit various corporate lobby offices where they plan strategies for TTIP to benefit their businesses, and EU institution buildings where officials are preparing the next round of TTIP negotiations in the US (starting 20 April) to serve the corporations' interests.
A delegation of Via Campesina farmers from around Europe and the USA will join the tour.
Media has also been invited to join.
The tour will start at 11.30 from the entrance of Parc Cinquantenaire situated at the corner of Rue Belliard # Avenue d'Auderghem (next to the Villo! bike station).
