French President Confronted by Farmers Over Glyphosate Ban

 



While I’m note sure this is exactly the moment which Emmanuel Macron is passionately telling a farmer he must ban the use of glyphosate because of the health problems he believes it may cause (cancer), it clearly shows him engaging directly. The French President visited his nation’s largest agricultural show Saturday in south Paris.

Farmers there booed him.

They are concerned about a proposed glyphosate ban, increased investment in farm land by China, and trade talks between the EU and South America.
