Municipal authorities conducted an institutional reception in the totanero Consistory MEP Marina Albiol, spokesman Plural Left coalition in the European Parliament, who last night gave a lecture in the theater of Socio-Cultural Center "Jail", within the cycle of activities organized this quarter by the Cultural Center and Workers Totana.

In the same attended by the mayor, Juan José Canovas, and the councilman of Youth, Inmaculada Blazquez, who were accompanied by the president of the Cultural Center and Workers Totana, Ginés Pérez Oliva.

The public event served to explain the consequences of the Transatlantic Agreement on Trade and Investment (TTIP) and its consequences for employment, the economy, agriculture and other important issues related to our present and future.

Demonstrations against this Treaty and the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the European Union and Canada could worsen our labor, social and economic conditions and is something that we must not allow, he said MEP at the press conference, he said.

During the reception MEP considered "irresponsible" that the European Union will go ahead with the talks for signing the Transatlantic Agreement on Trade and Investment (TTIP) with the US, "without realistic and concrete figures the impact it will have on employment and other economic variables, which only benefit multinationals and damage to 90% of the people ".

Guzman Albiol believes that the European Commission is "ducking" and that "knows that the TTIP can generate pockets of massive unemployment in certain territories with the entry of large US companies."

MEP recalled that the US has not ratified the conventions of the International Labour Organization;

and from their point of view, this makes the synonymous TTIP of wage inequality, unemployment, labor regulations aumentodumping socialy violations.

In addition, he said that "if it gets to the end," that "TTIP is considered a mixed agreement and therefore ratified by state legislatures."

But it has also insisted on the idea that "this is not enough, there should be demonstrations in the streets, as this past weekend, and binding referenda in Member States and allow opine citizenship."

The Spanish MEP tambbién believes that the demonstrations against the Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the European Union and Canada are taking effect, after the Council has decided to postpone for the moment the treaty this week.

However, the MEP argues that "no one should be trusted" and that the pressure on the street must be "of such magnitude" that EU leaders are forced to "bury them in a drawer definitively" the CETA.

"The Board has decided to postpone the signing of CETA is very good news, but we must not lead to deception: the street fighting should continue to see our leaders do not want their free trade agreements," he said.

That fight, staged in recent weeks with numerous demonstrations across the EU in the framework of the campaign against CETA and TTIP, "must be taken to a higher level."

"We get pressure from the street is of such magnitude that it is not choice but to bury the agreement," he insisted.

The Transatlantic Agreement for Trade and Investment (known by the acronym TTIP) is a treaty that is being negotiated now between the United States and the European Union to increase trade and inversio'n between the EU and USA

Advocates argue that the agreement would be beneficial to the economic growth of the nations that integrate, greatly increase economic freedom and encourage job creation;
