Event Details

Knowledge is power: as campaigners, we need to be able to argue against the many toxic aspects to the UK-US trade deal that’s being negotiated right now. 

You’ve probably heard about the threats to our NHS and food standards – but there are more threats to uncover. Discover some of the lesser known – but equally concerning – dangers that a trade deal presents here in Scotland at this trade justice teach-in.

Hear from:

  • Jean Blaylock, Global Justice Now’s trade campaigner will talk about how a US trade deal will hamper our ability to tackle climate change in Scotland and the UK.
  • Chloe Alexander, trade campaigner at CHEMTrust will talk about the lowering of safety standards for chemicals and how that might affect cosmetics and many other household items.
  • Matthew Rice, Scotland director of the Open Rights Group will talk about threats to our privacy from digital technology and how the threat might increase with a UK-US trade deal.
