#Vote this CAP down

Action map 2020

Mapping all events from the GFGF Action month in October 2020


Join us to raise the alarm for Good food and good farming!

European policies influence what we eat: every year €60 billion of taxpayers’ money is distributed to farmers through the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). Right now, the biggest farmers get the most money. But a reform of the policy is underway, and many other laws are being discussed at the same time, affecting the way we farm and what we eat. Now is the time to stand up and be heard!

We want:

  • access to local, healthy and culturally-appropriate food for all
  •  lively rural areas and more people in farming
  • no GMOs and major reduction of chemical pesticides and fertilizers
  • fair income and decent working conditions for farmers, land workers, pastoralists and fishers
  • subsidies to support farmers in the transition to more sustainable practices
  • protection of biodiversity, the environment and the climate
  • higher animal welfare and fewer, higher-quality animal products
  • international trade agreements that protects human rights and supports efforts to create socially just and ecologically resilient societies
  • more participation of farmers, consumers and activists in political decision making

😡Have you heard? A new analysis shows that out of 53 safety-assessment studies of glyphosate submitted to regulators by chemical companies, most of them lack the types of tests most able to detect cancer risks. @BurtscherHelmut tells us what it means for EU pesticide policies.
