Stop TISA the secret trade agreement
To EU Trade Commissioner Malmström and German Chancellor Angela Merkel:
The Trade in Services Agreement (TISA) currently under negotiation behind closed doors could promote the privatisation of our water supplies and health system, facilitate the transfer of European bank data into the US, and introduce undemocratic private courts. We call for a halt of the secret negotiations on TISA and the publication of the EU negotiation mandate.

Negotiated behind closed doors, TISA - the Trade in Services Agreement - has far-reaching consequences. Insiders say it will push the privatisation of our water and electricity, and put data protection at risk. But massive citizens protests already put a spanner in the works for TTIP, a similar trade agreement, and negotiators are doing all they can to prevent the same public outrage around TISA. But with a huge petition ahead of the next negotiation round in February, we can turn things upside down.
TISA negotiations are a well-kept secret, many people have never heard of them, and the content of discussions is not revealed. Let's change this now! The next negotiation round takes place in Geneva on the 9th of February -- let's get to 300.000 signers before the delivery! Sign now and share widely.
