As U.S. – EU negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP) Agreement continue behind closed doors, self-organized protest movements take center stage in streets and public squares the world over. The goal of these demonstrations? To raise public awareness on the dangers that these trade agreements pose not only for democracy, but for our basic rights to proper working, living and health standards.

The 9th round of U.S. – EU negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) Agreement took place on April 20th – 24th, 2015, in New York, NY, USA.

The Global Day of Action against #TTIP (Europe – U.S.) + #CETA (Europe – Canada) took place on April 18th, 2015.

Here are some photos taken in PARIS during the march from Place de la République to Place Stalingrad.

(March followed by a Flash mob and Vampire ball – Theme : Shine light onto these obscure treaties to kill the vampires !)
