35,000, loud, colourful and determined people took to the streets of Berlin today to give agriculure ministers from around the world a message: it's time to overhaul policies that promote outdated and dangerous industrial farming.

Germany

Europe's current model of farming and food consumption is destroying the environment and hurting people. Industrial agriculture damages water supplies, wildlife and rural communities, and its impacts are felt heavily in developing countries.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe campaigns to stop the expansion of industrial agriculture with all its negative environmental and social impacts. We promote farming and food which respects the world's finite natural resources and is fair to farmers and consumers.
