New Slavery: Europe is opposed to the Transatlantic Zone


Mass demonstrations against the European Union and the United States' signing of the agreement to establish the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) will be held on September 20nd in the so-called 'European' quarter of Brussels, the EU capital. One of the organizers is the public platform, StopTTIP.

A trap for the continent

The European Union and the United States have been conducting difficult negotiations on the TTIP since the summer of 2013. Washington had planned to complete them before the end of the presidential term of Barack Obama, but the positions of some European politicians and public figures have prevented these plans. The agreement involves the creation of the largest free trade zone with a market encompassing about 820 million people. In addition to the US and EU, the project is supposed to include Canada, Mexico, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Iceland, and a number of countries planning to join the European Union.

Average cannibalism

In fact, this agreement constitutes the complete economic subjugation of Europe to the United States. In general, the former colony of the Old World now tends to act as a colonizer of European peoples and states. By signing this treaty, Washington plans to delay the collapse of their own economic system, as the resources and markets of Europe will come under the full control of the US financial elites, allowing them to briefly spur economic growth and speculative activity. At the same time, European producers will suffer irreparable damages, will lose competitiveness, and will most likely also become largely dependent on US capital.

Protests at all levels

Negotiations and the possibility of signing this agreement has caused resentment among a wide range of residents of European countries. If the EU is dependent on the United States mainly politically at the moment, and the economic sphere is different and relatively free, then after signing the TTIP, all member states will become markets for exports and colonies of a new form. The representatives of major European businesses, who are not interested in losing their positions on global and local markets, are also against signing the agreement.
