We're gearing up to launch our new website on Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS).
The international campaign is growing! The threat of ISDS is real. Join us as Melinda St. Louis, Director of International Campaigns at Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch, Alejandra Alayza, leading Peruvian activist from Lima, and Ilana Solomon, Director of Sierra Club's Responsible Trade Program, explain the real-life threats of the ISDS system.
"The provision, an increasingly common feature of trade agreements, is called 'Investor-State Dispute Settlement,' or ISDS. The name may sound mild, but don’t be fooled. Agreeing to ISDS in this enormous new treaty would tilt the playing field in the United States further in favor of big multinational corporations. Worse, it would undermine U.S. sovereignty."
When: Thursday, March 19th at 7:00pm EST
