Call for a transformation of Europe’s agriculture: Share your picture!
Last year, the European Action Days gathered 22 different countries in with more than 100 events in towns and cities across Europe. An open letter was also handed over to the newly elected Members of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, with IFOAM Organics Europe’s staff present to the demonstration.
This year, October will be important for EU’s main agricultural policy, the CAP, as MEPs will vote the new CAP in the European Parliament. Agriculture ministers will also try to have a common approach in Council about the three legislative texts.
Raise your voice and share your picture
It is a key moment to have your voice heard and help us convince political leaders to fully reward organic farmers! Join the campaign by posting your picture on social media. How can you do so? Cross a soup spoon and fork or shovel and a pitchfork and take a photo to show you are fed up with the current Common Agricultural Policy!
Let’s collect as many photos as possible to show our governments and EU decision-makers that we are many demanding policies that support farmers in transition for future-fit practices, protect biodiversity and the climate, promote animal welfare and provide healthy food for all!
Share your photo on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #GoodFoodGoodFarming, add your demand for another agricultural policy in your post and tag MEPs in the European Parliament. Information with example posts and how to tag MEPs on gfgf.eu/online-actions. Please also send your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. All photos shared and sent will be published on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts of Good Food Good Farming and its supporters and on websites and materials promoting the campaign and persuading European leaders to vote for a progressive Common Agricultural Policy.
