We’re Not Stupid
We’re Not Stupid was a campaign to accompany The Deal Versus the People in our collective movement to raise awareness against TTIP (The Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership) a deal that sought to lower working conditions, environmental and food standards and privacy rights. Much of TTIP is now embedded in the new Brexit Deal.
We’re Not Stupid engaged with people on the streets to discuss TTIP and asked the question ‘what would you say to people in power?’ We know that working class people are not supid, we know the stories people tell about us and we know the ways that power operates to protects itself, lots and lots of people are having these conversations at home and work, We’re Not Stupid was a way of exploring people’s opinions on Trade Deals that would affect our lives. As part of the research for We’re Not Stupid and The Deal Versus the People we worked with The Trade Justice Movement and met with politicians and campaigners to understand how TTIP would work.
