Because No, Say Brits, We Will Not Let Americans "Stuff Chlorinated Chicken Down Our Throats!"


Reacting to comments by US secretary of state Mike Pompeo, Nick Dearden, director of Global Justice Now, said:

"Mike Pompeo can insist that chlorinated chicken is on the menu, but we can get up and go to a different restaurant. No deal with Donald Trump's United States is better than a bad deal. However they voted on Brexit, the British public are strongly against an assault on our food standards for the benefit of American agri-business. He's going to have a real fight on his hands to stuff chlorinated chicken down our throats."

Global Justice Now is a democratic social justice organisation working as part of a global movement to challenge the powerful and create a more just and equal world. We mobilise people in the UK for change, and act in solidarity with those fighting injustice, particularly in the global south.
