Obama in Germany: 35,000 Protest TTIP Trade Deal in Hannover…


A day ahead of Barack Obama’s visit; In Hannover, Germany  there was approximately thirty five thousand demonstrators  that paraded Saturday, 4/23/16 in Hannover, Germany.



The protest was corresponding the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).  



According to Hannover’s police, President Obama will use the annual CEBIT international trade fair in Hannover, Germany, to stimulate the deal.



In which would construct the world’s greatest free trade region with approximately 800,000,000 people.


Police spokeswoman Martina Stern said, “A convoy with 30 tractors already started this morning and will be met by a large number of protestors in the city center.”


The rally was planned by the Anti-Free-Trade Alliance.



Which was made up of multiple groups including trade unions, conservational activists and church groups.


These organizations are afraid the TTIP will jeopardize Germany’s environmental and legal standards.



Authorities say that protestors in Germany rarely express worries about negative economic impacts of transatlantic trade.


Peter Sparding from the German Marshall Fund (GMF) wrote in an essay this week:

In its place, local criticism “has often focused on an increase in what is perceived as undue corporate influence, a feared lack of democratic control, as well as worries about threats to existing labor, environmental, and consumer protection standards in TTIP.”



The rising skepticism was also echoed friday in an assessment be Germany’s Bertelsmann  Foundation.


The assessment brought forth that only 1 in 5 Germans approve of the TTIP.



The U.S. has seen powerful communal collaboration for free trade.


None the less, there is distinct hesitation about TTIP.




In the Bertelsmann survey documented that even though only 15 % back the TTIP free trade agreement, 18% of United States population is in conflict with it.


A GMF fellow Sparing wrote:

The “widespread and shared concern” concerning the existing trade negotiations may perhaps be “a perceived lack of transparency.”


In an address marking the five hundredth anniversary of Germany’s beer purity law, Chancellor Angela Merkel debated that for example in the beer trade, may benefit from a transatlantic trade partnership.
