EU-US Free Trade Negotiations
Bilateral trade negotiations between the EU and the USA will start soon. The danger is that hormones grown beef and GMOs could come through the back door that way. So I really advise people to put pressure on our local TDs and MEPs to be extra vigilant on that danger. The future of our food safety (and independence) is at risk.
The US trade representative, Ron Kirk, said that even sensitive issues such as agricultural subsidies will be up for discussion. “For us, everything is on the table, across all sectors, including across the agricultural sector, whether it is GMOs [genetically modified organisms] or other issues,” Mr Kirk said. “We should be ambitious and we should deal with all of these issues.”
