Water movement calls on European Parliament not to ratify CETA

Water tap

(10 February 2017)

The letter points out  the CETA endangers freshwater resources and water services at both sides of the Atlantic and argues that “ The Joint Interpretative Instrument fails to address the shortcomings of the agreement and paints an unreasonably optimistic picture about CETA. There is no legally safe new commitment or clarification in the text. We will only know the real potential of CETA provisions when decisions from public authorities or public water companies are clarified at a later stage. We cannot take that risk.”
