    European farmers march in Dublin to protest trade negotiations with Mercosur

    The Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers' Association (ICSA), which staged the protest described the offer from EU Commissioner Malmström as “reckless concessions”.

    European farmers took to the streets of Dublin outside the EU Commission offices to highlight the potential “sellout” of the multi-billion-euro beef industry in trade talks with Mercosur. Concerns have been rising over discussions at EU level over the impact a deal with Mercosur would have on Ireland's €2.5bn beef industry, which depends on EU markets for over 90% of its exports.
