|Multinationals will profit; TTIP CETA TISA; people will lose|
Apparently the clever? idea of the two TTIP parties was to keep the negotiations secret in order not to excite the people concerned for any small detail the US and Europe may and certainly will quarrel about. This way of non-communicating backfired with the result of a general excitement among the people developing lots of conspiracy theories. Here the famous American Chlorhühnchen (a chicken bathed in chlorine solution to kill the germs) traded against the European chicken full of antibiotics and hormones only presents the very tip of the TTIP iceberg.
Even in Freiburg people develop conspiracy scenarios with the Freiburg streetcars coming under American control. Although one of the future tram stops is already named Madisonallee there may be more to come when the Kaiser-Josef-Straße, in the Middle Ages named Große Gass (Big Alley), will again become Broadway and the Hauptbahnhof be renamed Main Station.
