The farming world is angry and wants to show it on Wednesday November 27, 2019 with a striking operation. Answering the call launched by the FNSEA (the National Federation of Farm Operators Syndicates), 1000 tractors are said to come to the gates of Paris on Wednesday November 27, 2019.
“Over 1000 tractors from Hauts-de-France, Normandy, Île-de-France, Grand-Est, Centre-Val-de-Loire and Bourgogne-Franche-Comté are expected in Paris. They will be at the gates of Paris from 6 a.m.” on the highways “A1, A4, A5, A6, A11, A13, A14, A15” and on national roads “N1, N2, N12, N20” the FNSEA farmers have declared in a press release.
As a consequence, the traffic in Île de France will be highly disrupted, this mobilization aiming at pointing out the lack of “concrete realization” of the supporting measures promised to farm operators. “We are fed up!” farmers have declared, underlining several arguments “free trade treaties, French regulatory measures compromising the performance of the exploitations, the distorting importations, the Egalim law that is not entirely applied”.
With this day of mobilization, the FNSEA would like “to ask distributors and industrials to resume a decent income for farmers and the State to transform their promises in concrete actions: no more distortions”.
