ICSA is holding a protest against the proposed Mercosur and TTIP trade deals tomorrow, Wednesday 4 May 2016.

The protest will take place outside the offices of the European Commission on Lower Mount St at 11.30am.

ICSA is focusing on the EU Commission in response to the excessively weak negotiating position taken by the Commissioner for Trade Cecilia Malmström without any democratic mandate.

ICSA strenuously opposes any trade deal which would threaten the future of the Irish beef Industry. EU trade deals such Mercosur with South America and TTIP with North America could result in thousands of tons of tariff free beef flooding the EU market which would be devastating for Irish beef exports.

The protest will involve ICSA national representatives from all over Ireland and several hundred are expected to attend.

ICSA is urging all farmers to come out to fight for fair play with ICSA. All politicians are invited to meet the protestors.
