Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We'll always have the USA to join us into making it a religion.

The EU does do anti-dumping, by the way. Quite aggressively.

That Europe would 'defend its farmers' is a myth, of course. The EU subsidies for farming are a form of industrial policy to support mass production by large farms, same as it is in the USA. Well, about 80% of the subsidies are, anyway. I would welcome a policy that is really aimed at defending the livelihood of individual farmers. But that would be a completely different policy.
