The “day of action” will see hundreds of small protests held all over the country. They are being organised by  campaign group 38 Degrees. So far, almost 2.5 million people have signed their Europe-wide petition against the underhand deal.

Demonstrations will be held at dozens of locations in London today, at eight sites aroundManchester, in Bristol, Lincoln in Lincolnshire, Bexhill-on-Sea in East Sussex, Morpeth in Northumberland and in many other towns.

The last 38 Degrees “day of action” against TTIP was in October 2014, when protests were held in 575 locations across the UK.

Demonstrations were also held across Europe in April including 2,000 taking to the streets in Brussels, 1,000 in Madrid and Helsinki and about 300 in Warsaw and Prague.

At that time, a YouGov poll found that 43 per cent of Germans believe TTIP would be bad for their country, compared to 26 per cent who viewed it as positive.
