Brussels – The Greenpeace blockade on EU-US trade talks has been lifted after Belgian police secured a side entrance for negotiators.

CORRECTED: Photos and video of today’s protest available here (updated link).

Greenpeace is determined to continue to take peaceful action against TTIP to defend democracy, people and the environment.

Concern about TTIP is growing and involves a wide spectrum of society, including NGOs, the health sector and businesses. Greenpeace is giving a voice to the millions of Europeans who have signed petitions and taken to the streets in defence of EU standards on food safety, toxic chemicals, healthcare and workers’ rights.
