Tackling Peak Oil, Climate Change and Economic Breakdown
It’s official - County Clare is now Ireland’s first TTIP Free Zone!
The night of Monday 8th February was a milestone moment in our fight to stop the toxic deal TTIP. Following a campaign led by Uplift members, Clare County Council passed a motion to declare the county a TTIP Free Zone.
This victory is a huge step for our community’s campaign to stop TTIP in its tracks. And what’s more, it’s people power that made it happen. But now we need to take this national.
Imagine if every city or county council in Ireland passed the same motion?What a powerful way to grow our campaign - people taking a stand to protect their communities from the bottom up.
Upilft is a community of over 64,000 members across every county in Ireland. If a few of us in each county follow the example of Uplift members in Clare, before we know it we could have every council taking a stand against TTIP.
Would you like to be a part of a campaign to make your local area a TTIP Free Zone?
“We can and must stand together in this fight against TTIP. It's a great feeling to know that there are so many of us working together.”
This people powered victory has exposed the weakness of TTIP. It has showed us that by working together locally, we can stop it in it tracks. Clare County Council is Ireland's first local authority to declare itself TTIP-Free and it won’t be the last.
