The campaigning group GMO Inside isn’t only about genetically modified (GM, genetically engineered) food. It’s also about the secret trade deals which, says Shireen at GMO Inside, threaten the food on our plates. From the United States Shireen looks West to the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and East to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). These are the two huge trade deals that I told you about last July. Back then, I understood less than I understand now.
You can scroll down Shireen’s article to watch a film which explains ‘the complex issue of trade’ so that it doesn’t seem quite so complex. Or watch it here: Free Trade vs Fair Trade.
