Farmers powerless - EU wants to push through devastating pact at all costs

Completely bluntly, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen puts the cards on the table – “Mercosur will be concluded!”

“It must not and cannot be that the Amazon and our farmers are sacrificed with this pact for the profit of a few corporations,” Greenpeace agricultural expert Sebastian Theissing-Matei reacts, dismayed, to the clear statement by the EU Commission President in Davos (Switzerland) to give the powerful of this world hope that the free trade agreement with Brazil will soon be concluded. She wants to boost the stalled negotiations. “Must prevent pact” As reported, Austria’s farmers are threatened with a fiasco because they are powerless at the mercy of the hormone meat glut. Cheap imports of sugar and ethanol could also seal their fate. Farmers’ Union director Paul Nemecek and the Turkish EU mandater Alex Bernhuber announced that they wanted to attack Mercosur: “We have to prevent the pact.”
