5 Reasons WTO Is Bad for Agriculture

Keep Agriculture out of Free Trade negotiations!

1. It has increased inequality and rural debt by destroying local peasant markets
The World Trade Organisation – WTO - has created a ‘free’ trade system that gives huge agribusiness corporations ‘the freedom’ to dump cheap food into economically weaker nations.

2. A handful of Corporations now control the global food system
Less than 20 global corporations today control the global food chain that governs what food we buy and how we buy it. The 3 largest corporations control more than 50 % of the world’s seed market.

3. Free Trade Agreements criminalise a 10,000 year-old food system by patenting seeds and giving Corporations the upper hand
Seed is the basis of life. The WTO and other free trade agreements force, sometimes threaten, countries to sign international agreements that allow corporations to put patents on seeds.

4. Industrial agriculture is heating up our planet
Industrial Agriculture and related land use contributes to 30% of the Green House Gas emissions.

5. WTO and Free Trade Agreements Kills Peasants
In India alone, over 300,000 peasants took their lives in the last 20 years, unable to bear their mounting debt. It is now a worldwide phenomenon.

We want Food Sovereignty not Free Trade!
