We joined a variety of campaigners in Huddersfield to distribute ‘Stop TTIP’ fliers produced by 38 Degrees on Saturday. There was a lot of interest from the public at Nelson Mandela Corner.
Across the country the day of action received a fair amount of media coverage, including on Radio 4’s Today programme. You can read more on http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-29572475
Interest is certainly picking up. We’ve been invited by Huddersfield TUC to speak to them on this matter at their next meeting.
