From Scotland to Haiti: why we need to change Europe’s unfair trade rules
For many years trade justice campaigners have argued for fairer global trade rules. In Scotland we are very supportive of fair trade: we became a fair trade nation in 2014. Yet outside of the market for fairtrade goods, farmers across the globe continue to be exploited by trade rules that put the profits of multinationals ahead of the rights of ordinary people. These rules do not only affect small scale farmers on the other side of the world. With the advent of TTIP and CETA (mega-trade deals between the US, Canada and Europe) it is European citizens whose rights are now being curtailed.
