EU: stop funding unethical poultry farming that harms local people

This petition had 20 supporters

We wish to draw your attention to a serious problem facing the Ukrainian people. MHP, Ukraine's largest agribusiness conglomerate, has received millions of euros in development loans. This for the expansion of MHP's (already massive) poultry farms.

Why is this an issue? Because this expansion is reported to cause environmental pollution, which will affect drinking water and farmlands. Any locals who voice opposition to the expansion are facing intimidation, making this a matter of international interest.

The Banks lending to MHP see the economic potential as worth this abuse of power, and overlooks just how damning this could be for locals as a result of this lending.

This issue must be discussed in the European Parliament. The facts of the case will prove publicly that these bank loans were irresponsibly given to MHP. By making it clear that these loans are no longer behind-the-scenes, pressure should be mounted on banks to give only ethically responsible business loans.
