Planet v$ Cargill: Global Day of Action

Animal, Climate and Health Save Movements are organizing a global day of action against Cargill which will take place on March 21!
Cargill is the third largest animal feed company in the world and is responsible for global mass deforestation and turning forests into animal feed plots. Animal feed crops (often called commodity crops) are genetically modified swaths of grain, corn and soybeans that have replaced many natural ecosystems such as prairies, meadows and forests. Animal feed crops are grown with massive amounts of herbicides, chemical fertilizers and pesticides. These crops use tremendous amounts of resources, such as water and land.
Transitioning to plant based foods will make it possible to reforest and rewild places that are currently in use for ranching and growing animal feed. Addressing the climate crisis requires us to end animal agriculture and return land to forests to absorb carbon out of the atmosphere. There should be healthy forest ecosystems with an abundant variety of plants and wildflowers and animal life in these spaces where these monocrops are currently cultivated.
Save the Amazon
75% of global deforestation and 91% of the destruction of the Amazon rainforest
are caused by animal agriculture. The destruction of the Amazon rainforest has been perpetuated by animal agricultural commodities giants and slaughter companies such as Cargill. GMO soy is exported from Brazil for animal feed for pigs, cows, and chickens and Brazil is becoming “the slaughterhouse of the world” according to the Guardian with expanded cattle ranching in the Amazon.

Mercosur Trade Agreement
The European Commission has signed a Free Trade deal with Brazil and Mercosur on June 28, 2019, giving a green light to destruction and exploitation of the Amazon rainforest for the production of cheap meat and animal feed. This agreement needs European Parliament approval to become law so now is our chance to prevent it!
