This is something for the leftarded globalists to consider, assuming they can think …….
MEXICO CITY (AP) — The World Trade Organization has ruled in favor of Mexico in a trade dispute with the U.S., saying Washington’s requirement for “dolphin-safe” tuna labels is unfair to Mexican fishermen.
The WTO said U.S. labeling rules set different requirements depending on where a fish is caught. It said Friday that the result is “less favorable treatment to Mexican tuna products.”
A WTO appellate body reviewed the original ruling of a panel set up to settle the dispute first brought by Mexico in 2009. Friday’s ruling said U.S. dolphin-safe labeling for tuna products still does not meet the requirements set by the dispute panel.
Mexico originally argued that U.S. “dolphin-safe” labels were illegal because they restricted trade. Mexico says its tuna production meets international standards preventing accidental capture of dolphins in nets.
You see, Mexico’s tuna production doesn’t meet the US standards for the “dolphin-safe” labeling. Too bad, apparently. We signed a treaty promising to adhere to the edicts of the WTO rulings. By treaty, their rules overrule our rules.
Anyone saying or believing we don’t give up our autonomy by signing such treaties needs only to look at the EU (an economic alliance) to absolutely know that we do.
Regardless of one’s views on this specific subject, what is happening is that people and organizations outside the US are dictating to the people of the US. And, by treaty, we are without redress and recourse.
