Record-Breaking Petition Against TTIP Reaches Two Million Signatures

WASHINGTON - The European Citizens’ Initiative “Stop TTIP” has reached a new record number of signatures two days ahead of a critical vote on TTIP in the European parliament. With two million signatories, this is the largest European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) since the introduction of the instrument in 2012, even though the EU Commission has tried to block it.

The day after tomorrow, on 10 June 2015, the European Parliament will vote on a critical resolution concerning TTIP.

These two million people are going about this peacefully. I believe it is important enough that if peaceful does not work other means will be considered.
