Join Global Justice Now and War on Want's two day mobilisation to build the campaign for trade democracy!

Thanks to the hard work of activists and the Government's anti-democratic approach to trade deals, trade democracy has become a critical issue for politicians and the public.

More than 130 MPs have signed motions calling for transparency and democracy in UK trade deals — while the government's recently launched Trade Bill was released only hours after at the closing of a white paper 'consultation' responded to by thousands of members of public.

The Trade Bill is passing through parliament now — we urgently need to strengthen the campaign for trade democracy. Through education, protest, a lobby of MPs, and building relationships among activists and campaigners across the country, this two-day mobilisation will do exactly that.

When: 5-6 February 2018
Where: in and around the City of London — details below

MONDAY 5 FEBRUARY (in and around the City of London, starting around lunchtime)

*Trade impact tour* Get up close to the corporate seats of power: the multinational businesses that wield so much influence over government and state institutions responsible for setting trade policy and law. We will learn about the places where corporate courts are dreamed up and the lobbyists who are so central to the process of corporate influence.

*Public meeting: Trading with Trump: a post Brexit nightmare?* Featuring Caroline Lucas, co-leader of the Green Party and Barry Gardiner, shadow secretary of state for international trade. A panel discussion to debate the latest developments in trade deal negotiations and the arguments needed to win it. As spaces are limited, please sign up here:

*Trade activists meet-up* join other activists to talk trade politics over some food and a social.

TUESDAY 6 FEBRUARY (based in and around parliament)

*Trade democracy demo* Gather in a central location with banners, chants and speakers to make our views known.

*Mass lobby of MPs* Meet your MP, present the arguments for trade democracy and try and convince them to support our key demands. There will be support in lobbying skills before this.
