While the Government just lately made public a primary model of the invoice to replicate the proposals made by the Citizen’s Climate Convention, lots of them weren’t lastly taken up, or else emptied of their substance. Forgotten, the dedication of the President of the Republic to submit the latter “without filter” to Parliament … Among these, the supervision of meals promoting to children, which our affiliation has been defending for greater than ten years.
Despite the work of the UFC-Que Choisir, the Court of Auditors, the WHO and Public Health France demonstrating, on the one hand, on the one hand the dangerous impression on the well being of commercials for children touting unbalanced merchandise , and on the different hand that it’s by legislation that it’s vital to border these promoting messages, the Government once more depends on the professionals. It makes you marvel if the research and recordsdata despatched should not used to prop up a wobbly desk, or to dam a door whose hinges are beginning to be just a little unfastened ?!
Maybe they do not learn the paperwork they obtain, you’ll inform me? However, they learn the letter despatched to them by the National Association of Food Industries (ANIA). Indeed, the Government’s response to the proposal to manage meals promoting is an impudent copy-paste of the mail that the foyer of the agrifood trade had despatched. To hell with the work of unbiased organizations and authorities who level out that self-regulation by professionals is ineffective, allow us to slightly hearken to a construction with the basic curiosity pegged to the physique, like the ANIA!
Basically, I’ve acquired the certainty that when choices so opposite to the basic curiosity are taken by the public authorities, it’s not by ignorance of the details, however by a deliberate option to ignore them … and to privilege sure categorical pursuits. It’s as much as us to deliver them to their senses. Let us proceed to mobilize. You are already greater than 90,000 to have voted in favor of this advertising framework by signing our petition, launched alongside associations of fogeys of scholars, environmental well being, households, or diabetics. Barbara Pompilli, Minister for the Ecological Transition, had nevertheless for a time promised a framework by the Law of promoting for junk meals. So it isn’t simply the hinges which are unfastened? We will see.
