Motion opposing the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership agreement
Haldane strongly opposes the EU/ US free trade agreement, otherwise known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership agreement (TTIP) - the purpose of which is to further entrench the power of capital and corporate rights at the expense of everything else - social, environmental and labour standards.
Motion regarding devastation and human catastrophe unfolding in the Phillipines
Haldane AGM notes:
(i) the devastating and urgent human catastrophe in the Philippines caused by Typhoon Haiyan;
(ii) the need for an effective humanitarian response that will alleviate suffering in the immediate future and further when the passing interest of the world’s media moves on;
(iii) the specific request for financial support by Haldane’s comrades in the Philippines, several of whom visited London in February 2012 as part of the DHRD conference and with whom we have developed strong links and offered solidarity in their struggle for social and economic rights.
(i) To facilitate a collection at the conclusion of the AGM with any monies raised being sent with a donation of £100 already agreed by the Haldane Executive earlier this week.
