Each cow in the European Union is subsidized by $2 a day.
Half the world’s population live on less than $2 a day.
A complex €55,000,000,000 web of farm subsidies stretches across the European Union stealing the rights of traditional farmers in the poorest countries to sell their produce at a fair price. It comprises over half of the EU’s budget.
The USA is no better, despite their avowal that they’re in favour of fair trade. Yeah, right. Fair to whom?
It’s hypocritical, it’s amoral, and it’s disgusting.
