Den CETA-Hammer Aufhalten (Stop the CETA Hammer)

World  (tags: CETA, TTIP )

- 1747 days ago -
TTIP has gained some attention on care2 recently, but the EU is already about to ask the national governments about the CETA (free trade agreement wich Canada). This would also allow US concerns with daugthers in CA to use the same rights TTIP would offer

Translation (done by myself, therefore it does not raise claims to be w/o errors, sorry for that)
If the EU and Canada sign the CETA agreement, our laws are being threated to become the plaything of international enterprises. Those could sue - using their Canadian subsidiary companies - if law concerning social, environmentally or consumer rights threat their income. Secretly meeting, private arbitral courts are allowed to impose penalties over billions, that have to be payed by taxes. Company-affiliated law offices provide judge, claimant and defense lawyer in those trials.
Thereby the planed free trading agreement TTIP would be introduced through the back door. Laws got threatened that prohibit genetic engineering on our fields and that prevent drinking water from fracking. Also the privatization of public services could not be reversed any more.
We invite you: Decline the CETA agreement.

Hi all,
just some short explanations about the technical aspects of signing ( as question arose at comparable german petitions)
"Anrede" means salutation: "Herr" -> Mr., "Frau" = Ms. , "Hallo" = "Hi" (meant as an informal salutation)
"Titel" means e.g. Dr. degrees, etc. (not nocessary)
"Vorname" = First Name
"Nachname" = Last Name
"Land" = Country
"PLZ" = Zip Code
"Ort" = Place
"E-Mail-Adresse" = email address

Signed Google translate, thankfully. This to prevent companies from having the power to destroy the environment if they feel the rules are taking their profits. Basically it will allow companies to destroy Rainforest and we will not be able to do anything. So please sign!!!

Interesting that Canada is not a listed country on the petition so I am living in Germany with a US zip for this petition. There are many Canadians who also oppose CETA. We have experience with NAFTA (Canada, US, Mexico). There is currently an action from a US chartered company that wants to frack the St Lawrence River. The Québec government has put a moritoriam on fracking so the company has lodged a law suit against the Canadian government for $250 million. Everybody, please watch out for the TPP which is also being negotiated in secrecy.

They are forever trying to slip something in on us TPP, TTIP, CETA, NAFTA, on and on we go. Nothing good for the common people only good for the Corporations or the 1% in general. I signed, thanks for translate for those who do not have it on their computers.....Google translator works I think for everyone that wants to download it.

Also thanks for posting and also for Ashley for the forward, I'm all up on this crap. These Corporate agreements will affect all of us and all of our passions be it environmental, animals, human rights, climate change, or whatever it may be. I'll also forward on my next send out.

Noted and signed with thanks Volker. Lynn Squance, the CETA is all but approved, just waiting on all provinces. ( article Huff Post Canada, Aug 5, 2014). I used a CA address to sign as Canada is not one of the countries mentioned?? Watch out for the TIPP!! 2015 we vote for a new Prime Minister, and the way PM Stephen Harper has conducted himself and his party with nothing but secretive meetings, I will be on my knees election day praying he does not get back in.

Noted. I'm pretty sure I had already done this. I've signed so many to do with this and the TPP. The message I received on confirmation was:

Confirmation link has been activated!

The confirmation link was already used by you, or is no longer valid. Please repeat if necessary to participate in the action, the order of the newsletter or add your e-mail address again added.

I know it wasn't that the link was no longer valid because I immediately clicked on it the second it came in.

After "signing, a small window came up with this (translated via Google Translate):
"Now open your e-mail inbox!

Love Joy Toney,

so your vote counts, you see now consult your e-mail inbox. We have sent to ************@***.net a message with a confirmation link. Only when you activate it, your signature will be attached to the appeal. Please check your spam folder.

Best Regards

Your Campact team

PS If you our address in your contact list, make sure that you always receive messages from us right in your inbox."

I REALLY don't like them sending me anything! Now I'll probably have to try to unsubscribe from them. Grrrr!
