ON SATURDAY you published letters by two writers concerning the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

On Saturday, July 12, between noon and 3pm in the centre of York, various groups of concerned people will be teaming up with other local campaigners such as global justice group JustYork and Defend Our NHS York to spread the message and get the public talking about this threat to our democracy.

This is part of the national NoTTIP day of action co-ordinated by World Development Movement, War on Want, Friends of the Earth, the People’s Assembly and many others.

I would encourage people to get involved, attend and contact their MPs and MEPs over this serious breach of democratic accountability (among other things).

Dr Mick Phythian, Monkton Road, York.
