Take action for democracy, environment and health!

Serving the interests of influential combines, EU representatives are negotiating with the US government about the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). Using this agreement, US corporations are planning to develop new markets for products (such as chicken meat treated with chlorine, meat contaminated with hormones or GMO plants) and technologies (such as the extremely risky hydraulic fracturing) that are unwanted in the EU. Rural agriculture would be weakened and the industrialized agriculture would gain even more power. Lobbyists are already putting government representatives under enormous pressure.

Neither citizens nor members of the EU parliament are allowed to follow the negotiations, but leaked information show that the negotiators would like to see the biggest wishes of the combines fulfilled. Lax data protection and privatization of water supplies would also conquer Europe, while it’s not even proven that TTIP would actually create new jobs and contribute to economic growth.


The free-trade agreement would undermine democracy and the rule of law. Foreign corporations would be allowed to sue countries for high compensation in secretive, arbitration proceedings when countries pass laws that could reduce the profits, such as laws that are meant to protect the environment and people’s health. The energy combine Vattenfall has already sued Germany on the basis of supposed losses created by the country abandoning nuclear energy. Now tax payers might have to compensate Vattenfall with 3,7 billion Euros.


Once agreed upon, TTIP is practically irreversible. The contracts for elected politicians are essentially no longer amendable as every change requires agreement by all parties. One country could not unilaterally decide to withdraw from the contract, as it is the EU who signs enters into the agreement.


TTIP can be stopped by putting pressure on the ones responsible. Inform others, sign every petition against it which you can get your hands on and support protest actions! Vote for politicians that are critical towards TTIP!

Im Interesse einflussreicher Konzerne verhandeln Vertreter der EU mit der US-Regierung zurzeit hinter verschlossenen Türen über das Freihandelsabkommen TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership). Mit diesem Abkommen wollen US-Firmen neue Märkte für in der EU unerwünschte Produkte (z. B. Chlor-Hühnchen, Hormonfleisch und genmanipulierte Pflanzen) und Technologien (z. B. das höchst risikobehaftete Fracking) erschließen. </span>Die bäuerliche Landwirtschaft würde geschwächt und die Agrarindustrie noch mächtiger. Dafür üben Lobbyisten gewaltigen Druck auf Regierungsvertreter aus.

Weder Bürger noch EU-Parlamentarier dürfen die Verhandlungen verfolgen, doch durchgesickerte Papiere zeigen, dass die Unterhändler die größten Wünsche der Konzerne erfüllen wollen. Auch laxer Datenschutz und eine privatisierte Wasserversorgung sollen in Europa einziehen. Dabei ist nicht einmal bewiesen, dass das TTIP-Abkommen tatsächlich Arbeitsplätze schaffen und zum Wirtschaftswachstum beitragen würde.


Das Abkommen würde die Demokratie und den Rechtsstaat untergraben. Ausländische Konzerne können Staaten künftig vor nicht öffentlich tagenden Schiedsgerichten auf hohe Schadenersatzzahlungen verklagen, wenn sie Gesetze zum Schutz von Umwelt und Gesundheit verabschieden, die ihre Gewinne schmälern könnten. Der Energiekonzern Vattenfall hat Deutschland bereits wegen angeblich durch den Atomausstieg verursachter Verluste und ihren auf 3,7 Milliarden Euro verklagt, die mit Steuergeldern bezahlt werden müssten.


Einmal verabschiedet, ist TTIP ist praktisch unumkehrbar. Bei jeder Änderung der Verträge müssten alle Vertragspartner zustimmen. Deutschland allein könnte aus dem Vertrag auch nicht aussteigen, da die EU den Vertrag abschließt.


Durch Druck von außen kann das Abkommen verhindert werden. Informiert andere, unterzeichnet jede Petition gegen TTIP, die ihr kriegen könnt, und unterstützt Protestaktionen! Wählt am 25. Mai TTIP-kritische Abgeordnete ins EU-Parlament!

Knowledge follows the will to change...

Hi! I'm Rieke, a traditional artist from Germany who grew up drawing comics and cartoons, animals and nature and simply loves to draw and paint. I’m a mainly self-taught artist, but learned how to use acrylic paints at a College of Further Education.

Shark Week painting WIP by rieke-b The Wisdom of the Grizzly King by rieke-b Phoebe Followed the Sun by rieke-b Splashing and Birdsong - for sale by rieke-b Little Princess Sonja 4, Piggies by rieke-b Leni and Tony by rieke-b

I'm one half of a creative team of sisters who work together closely, so I'm glad to have a spare brain, pair of eyes and hands roaming the house. :D
My older sis, Jelka :iconjerseydays: , creates gorgeous one-of-a-kind art dolls and I'm happy and proud when I can paint their faces and body parts.

Since Jelka is also a great author and comic artist, she helped me finishing most of the artworks you can see in my gallery.
My family and pets, telling stories, humour, learning about animals and the search for chemical-free insight keep me together. :D

I can't tell you about all my projects and ideas because I prefer to show finished works than talking too much. My art tells a lot about me and my personality, anyway. ;)

Interests: caring for my pets (2 dogs, 1 cat), learning about nature and animals, traditional art, music, yummy organic vegan food
Favourite musicians: The Beatles & Paul McCartney, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Tori Amos, Mari Boine, Sonny Landreth, Neil Innes & The Rutles, Sting, Fleetwood Mac, Origa, Rory Gallagher
Favourite authors: Terry Pratchett, Cesar Millan, Scott McCloud
