Experience. Grieve. No financial stakes whatsoever.

What should be researched?

They subsidize the largest farmers most who are responsible for largest environmental damage and refuse to change because of this money. Most money is used not to produce real food but to pretend to do so by buying (bad) seeds that are not even harvested. EU Money is paid no matter what. An administrative harvest is the result. Plus franas, acidification of oceans, death of the soil and CO2 and pesticide pollution (Parkinson among farmers)

Who is affected?

Banks, fossil fuel, Cargill etc. We the people are affected. Farmers buy more and more soil, poison even the most fertile soils in Ukraine.

Why should this story be researched?

EU Policy is to sustain biological sustainable farming but …Resources are wasted in supporting the wrong ones who claim they are needed.

Where does this story take place?

All over EU. In Italy where I live, in NL but increases now in East Europe causing valuable landscapes to disappear in Romania etc
