The Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers’ Association will protest today against two proposed trade deals which will affect Irish farmers.
ICSA is against Mercosur and TTIP, saying the deals would threaten the future of the Irish beef industry.
Their focus is on the EU Commission in response to what it says is the weak negotiating position taken by the Commissioner for Trade Cecilia Malmström, without any democratic mandate.
ICSA president Patrick Kent believes politicians are not fully aware of the risks.
