577. A Just Transition for Farmers

We are all paying into the Common Agriculture Policy, but do we know where that money is going? Joining me on the podcast is Gerry Loftus, who has spent the last few decades advocating for sustainable agriculture, climate action and is a founding member of the Rural Ireland Organisation. Gerry outlines his concerns about Ireland’s food insecurity and how we have failed to rebalance our food production in a sustainable way. Gerry will be outside the Dept of Agriculture, along with groups like Extinction Rebellion this Friday, June 25th, at 1pm. Do get along and show your support safely if you can.

See @ExtinctRebelsIE for more about Friday.
