During the GFGF action month 1-31 October

What is at stake?

The negotiations on the CAP reform in the European Parliament are coming to an end with the plenary vote which is likely to happen on the 20th of October! This is the moment to make our voted representatives hear our voices!

For the period from the 12th to the 23rd of October, we are planning to get loud online to grab the last chance to get MEPs to vote in our favour! Let’s raise our voices for a fairer and greener #futureofCAP!

Online activities before the vote:

1. We made a video with people across Europe to mobilize citizens to sign a petition for a better #futureofCAP.
The video is available in the languages ENG, ES, FR, RO, PL, CZ and DE here. Please share the video on social media and within your network using #GoodFoodGoodFarming and #futureofCAP

2. To increase pressure on influental MEPs right before the vote, we want to target MEPs directly on Twitter with more concrete messages, which bring our common demands together and make us speak with a common voice! Please share the tweets you find below and tag MEPs. You find the list with the Twitter handles of important MEPs to the left.
