[DFRI-listan] Fwd: [US-EU-TTIP] New online tool to highlight investor-state threat

TTIP är ett jätte-ACTA som omfattar allt ifrån kyckling till krypton.

Jag kollade lite på kartorna igår http://www.citizen.org/TAFTA-investment-map

Vet inte riktig vad jag ska göra med det här än.

Greetings.  We’ve created a new online tool that you might find useful to highlight TAFTA/TTIP’s investor-state threat. 


It’s a map of the 75,000 foreign-owned firms in the U.S. and EU that would be granted extraordinary investor privileges under the deal (as currently proposed), creating unprecedented exposure for both governments to investor-state attacks on health, environmental, financial and other safeguards.  That’s 24,000 U.S. subsidiaries of EU-based corporations and 51,000 EU subsidiaries of U.S.-based corporations that would be given greater rights than domestic firms and whose parent companies would be empowered to bypass domestic courts in launching claims against government policies and actions before extrajudicial tribunals.  


The maps, which are an overlay of Google maps, allow users to zoom in to see the foreign investors in their communities that could take advantage of the deal’s investor privileges to demand taxpayer compensation for public interest safeguards.  Feel free to use and distribute as you see fit: http://www.citizen.org/TAFTA-investment-map
