European Attac Network and others have proposed a transatlantic/transpacific action day in spring 2015 against TTIP, TPP, CETA, TiSA, other free trade agreements and trade-related issues like « Fast Track » in the United States, as well as connections to other struggles. We are interested in your views on this suggestion.

Spring 2015 seems to be a the right point in time for European campaigners : After the new EU Commission has started its term, TTIP negotiations will gather momentum and the preparations for the ratification process of CETA will be in full swing. In the transpacific context, the TPP negotiations may be approaching conclusion this spring. And US campaigners may also have new Fast Track trade authority legislation they are working to defeat.
A possible date to consider is April 18th (Sat.), linked to April 17th (Fri.) annual global « Day of peasants’ struggles » of La Via Campesina.
For such an action day we may want various forms of coordination : e.g. website, action online map, media work, twitter storm, etc. We should think also about web tools that can facilitate intercontinental exchange between the grassroots.
Your comments and suggestions are most welcome.
