ABSTRACT
This article reports on the apprehension being felt by the Fairness for Farmers in Europe (FFE), an association representing farm organizations in Britain, Ireland and the European Union (EU), due to the possibility that the EU Commission is preparing to sell out EU farming during World Trade Organization negotiations. Representatives of FFE met EU farm commissioner Mariann Fischer Boel in Strasbourg on June 13, 2006 for what they described as a frank and rewarding meeting.
