Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement passed by EU Parliament
On 15th Feb 2016, the CETA was approved by a majority of 408 in favour, 254 against and 33 abstentions in the EU Parliament.
No other trade agreement has met a so strong opposition in the European Parliament, and in the streets, with the protests and the collection of 3,5 million signatures against TTIP and CETA. This resistance was expressed so well again today here in Strasbourg, outside and inside Parliament.
To vote CETA in the hurry, the European Parliament did not go adopt a resolution in deep on the content of the agreement (contrary to what it did for TTIP and CETA).
A majority approved CETA but was not able to adopt a joint accompanying resolution.
