Farmers Block Champs Elysees Over Fears of…

Around 250 farmers blocked traffic on the Champs Elysees in Paris on Friday morning, September 22, to protest against what they fear will be unfair competition through foreign imports.At the heart of the protest, called by the leading French farmers’ union FNSEA, lies the potential ban on treating agricultural products with herbicides such as glyphosate, Le Point reported. Farmers fear that this will be put them at a disadvantage if the ban is not extended to foreign imports.Last week French and German farmers called on European governments to extend the license for the weedkiller, Reuters reported. Governments are due to vote on the issue next month with France poised to vote against the use of the herbicide.The potential changes follow the World Health Organisation’s classification of the herbicide as “probably carcinogenic” in 2015.
