After the Demo is before the Action!

Soup&Talk and The Transatlantic – European workshop on TTIP

After the “We are fed up!” demo 17.01.2015 at Heinrich-Boell-Foundation
Everyone who has the time and inclination after the demo on the 17th of January can join us at the Heinrich Boell Foundation, less than 10 minutes from the Chancellor’s Office, to warm up and strengthen the body and spirit. There will be hot soup and drinks from Fläming Kitchen/Wam Kat and the “Schnippeldisko” (Disco Soup), and space for conversation and hugs.

The Soup&Talk action after the demo

Soup&Talk – Political Idea Stew (starts 3 pm)

Initiatives and activists from Germany, Europe and overseas reporting on their campaigns and discussing successes with their demonstrations and actions. All those with something to contribute are invited to do so! “Could have, should have, would have” attitudes are not invited; we are looking for “we do, we have, we dream, we will, and join in!”.

TTIP workshop organised by ARC2020 and Forum Umwelt und Entwicklung

Transatlantic – European workshop on TTIP (starts 5 pm)
“TTIP – a threat on healthy food and sustainable agriculture?”

All over Europe and in the US more and more citizens are concerned about a new wave of deregulation by so-called “free trade agreements”. The most prominent is TTIP, the EU-USA FTA – but also the EU-Canada agreement CETA which is a kind of blueprint for TTIP. Food and agriculture are key elements why people oppose these agreements. This discussion is not about what’s in TTIP and why we should oppose it – it is about who is active against TTIP in the movement for good food and good farming, what happens in Germany and other countries, and what we can do after the demonstration. Come and join us – and get in touch with other activists!
