A new European Commission proposal is set to entrench the dangerous investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) system, which foreign investors can use to subvert democratic decision-making. CEO opposes this attempt to establish a global super court for corporations.

Over the past 16 years, residents of the town of Roşia Montană in Romania have fought against a proposed multi-billion dollar mining project, which would have destroyed their home and the surrounding environment. In a remarkable show of people power, they succeeded in stopping the mine. But the project’s majority owner, Canadian company Gabriel Resources, is now using a legal backdoor and suing Romania in an international investment tribunal, potentially demanding billions in taxpayer money as compensation.

Canadian mining company Gabriel Resources is using an investor-state lawsuit to push through its illegal toxic goldmine in the historical Romanian village of Roşia Montană. The claim foreshadows the multi-billion $ claims which could hit EU member states if the EU-Canada trade deal CETA comes into force.

Dozens of farmers groups and civil society organisations from across Europe have signed the Manifesto "Keep the farm TTIP- and CETA-free". What began as a Dutch coalition between pig, poultry and dairy farmers, the organic farming sector, unions and environmental organisations, has now expanded to the European level.

Over 450 public interest groups from across Europe and Canada today published an open letter urging legislators to vote against the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA). They joined forces to defend people and planet against the threats posed by the EU-Canada agreement, which still needs to be ratified by the European Parliament. Should EU parliamentarians give the trade deal the green light, ratification votes in EU member states would follow.

Le rapport “Rebaptisée "ICS", la Charte des pleins pouvoirs refuse de mourir” montre que la pression continue pour accorder des privilèges aux investisseurs étrangers dans les négociations commerciales de l'UE telle que la proposition d'accord TAFTA/TTIP entre l'UE et les Etats-Unis. La Commission a tenté d'améliorer l'image du mécanisme de règlement des différends investisseur-Etat (ISDS ou RDIE en français), clause politique intenable, en changeant son nom pour l'intituler désormais "système judiciaire sur l'investissement" (ICS). C'est une controverse européenne inégalée contre la menace démocratique posée par l'ISDS qui a mené à ce changement de nom l'année dernière, dans une tentative de la Commission de contourner l'énorme opposition citoyenne aux privilèges judiciaires accordés aux multinationales.

Ces deux dernières années, une controverse citoyenne inégalée en Europe, sur un élément peu connu des accords internationaux de commerce, a retenu l'attention des citoyens, des décideurs politiques et des médias. Celle-ci concerne le dénommé système de règlement des différends investisseur-Etat, le RDIE ou l'ISDS en anglais.
