Pictured are Liz Potter, Niamh Monhaghan and Ralph Hierons collecting signatures for a petition against a ‘secret trade deal’.

Campaigners say the ‘TTIP’ deal could force NHS trusts across the country to open up to American private healthcare providers, and could allow big businesses to sue the government if British laws dent their profits.

They are calling on people to sign the petition against as part of a nationwide effort coordinated by independent campaign group 38 Degrees. It has seen local campaigners talk to hundreds of people about the dangers of this deal, and how it might affect their lives if it isn’t stopped.
