#SaveBritishFarming London March

Yesterday, farmers and activists gathered in London to protest the real prospect of sub-standard imports from the US that would threaten the nation’s health and the survival of family farms countrywide unless politicians add amendments to the Agriculture Bill that would prevent the import of food produced to lower standards of food safety, environmental protection and animal welfare than those required of UK farmers. Tractors, vans and some loud horns marked the beginnings of the #SaveBritishFarming campaign.

Last May, these Ag Bill amendments were shot down by a tory majority. As the UN is SPECIFICALLY supporting agricultural practices, please write to your MP to urge them to vote in favour of this amendment to protect British farmers from cheap and nasty imported food.
