The French government has promised answers to angry farmers


After a meeting between Prime Minister Gabriel Attal and union leaders, including the main union organization, the National Federation of Farmers’ Unions (Fnsea), Fesneau announced that preliminary announcements could come later this week.

The prime minister has clearly expressed his willingness to act quickly, with announcements on some issues this week and others later in the medium term, he said.

Inflation, low wages, environmental regulations that are considered too harsh, and the delay in the payment of state aid have fueled the feeling of frustration and abandonment of a good part of the French farmers, a weak bag—also found in Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, and other countries of the European Union.

Currently, the blockade since Thursday of the A64 motorway, which connects the southern cities of Toulouse and Bayonne (French Basque Country), is a symbol of the unrest of farmers in the French land, especially near Carbonne, where they are demanding concrete answers with dozens of tractors.

However, the president of Fnsea, Arnaud Rousseau, warned this morning that the movement will increase its activities, with actions that will take place today, throughout the week, and until necessary. Rousseau appreciated the possibility of coordination to expand the protests throughout the national territory and at the European level.

Due to the protests and their final achievement, the Minister of Agriculture announced the other day in the program “Grand Jury RTL-Le Figaro-M6-Paris Première” that the agricultural reform bill will no longer be presented on Wednesday in the Council of Ministers. , and it will take a few weeks to introduce.

Fesneau commented that President Emmanuel Macron asked to solve the ongoing crisis and find answers to it.
