Trading Injustice: The Ghana Tomato Story – PART 1 of 2

Tomato farmers in Ghana describe how unjust trade rules are destroying their livelihoods. Cheap subsidised tomatoes from Europe are being dumped in Ghana and preventing Ghanaian farmers from selling their locally grown produce. Meanwhile the World Trade Organisation, under pressure from the EU and US, is preventing the Ghanaian Government from protecting its farmers from these cheap imports. African Initiatives, a UK based NGO, is supporting these Ghanaian farmers to understand the international systems that are destroying their livelihoods and empowering them to influence the decision-making processes that are plunging them further into poverty.
