the European Comission and the Member States are still trying to force the adoption of repressive measures that undermine fundamental freedoms, under the cover of trade agreements kept secret. The Canada-EU Trade Agreement (CETA), the India-EU, Thailand-EU, Moldavia-EU Free Trade Agreements, etc.: all these agreements might include dispositions harmful for Internet users’s rights, access to essential drugs or the use of free software.

It is unacceptable that measures threatening fundamental freedoms be negotiated in total opacity by unelected administrators when these provisions, which go way beyond trade agreements, must be debated in a democratic and transparent way.

A new report on the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement (CETA) concludes that the agreement's benefits for Nova Scotia are being oversold, while its costs and consequences are minimized or even ignored.

Ottawa (29 Oct. 2012) - Operation Maple has produced a video highlighting the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).  This initiative of the Harper government is not receiving much public attention but its implications should be of concern to all Canadians.

In an interview with viEUws, the European Commissioner for Trade, Karel De Gucht, affirms that Europe wants to close the Canadian-European Trade Agreement (CETA) by the end of this year—which would have been today, since the European calendar year ends on October 31.1 CETA is a trade agreement designed to strengthen economic ties between Canada and the EU through “free” trade and increased investment. However, hidden within this treaty are intellectual property provisions that were essentially taken word-for-word from ACTA. And just like its close cousins, ACTA, KORUS, and TPP—and other trade agreements that are applauded by the entertainment industry for carrying expansive intellectual property provisions—CETA is being negotiated in secret.

Paris, July 10th 2012 - A leaked version of the Canada-EU trade agreement (CETA) contains the worst parts of ACTA. The EU Commission appears to be once again trying to bypass the democratic process in order to impose ruthless repression online. Commissioner De Gucht cannot ignore the decision of the EU Parliament on ACTA. CETA must be cancelled altogether (or its repressive ACTA parts must be scrapped), or face the same fate as ACTA in the Parliament.
