EU-MERCOSUR FTA: The EU will be sending European farmers to the slaughter house

The negotiations cast aside the needs of farmers, workers and consumers on both sides of the Atlantic. The proposed treaty will be a dangerous advancement for the neoliberal model and a flagrant violation of the social and environmental rights of all. Moreover, this agreement would show that the commitments made at COP 23 for a sustainable economic model were nothing more than rhetoric from the Heads of State; distinctly lacking in policy coherence.
