The CAP has abandoned regulatory tools. All sectors are subject to uncanny intra-European competition and fluctuations in the world market: field crops, fruits and vegetables, viticulture, livestock … This neoliberal oriented policy, symbolized through the negotiation of free trade agreements, must be stopped. We want a social and democratic Europe.
