They assure that they feel humiliated, deceived and insulted by the Strategic Plan of the Minister of Agriculture
With the slogan “A CAP for the support of farmers and ranchers. No to the Planas proposal”, the four agricultural organizations with a presence in Aragn (UAGA, Asaja, Araga and UPA), plus the agri-food cooperatives, have called for a new mobilization to next October 8.
It will consist of a rally before the Minister of Agriculture of the Government of Aragn and then a demonstration to the Government Delegation in Aragon, located in the Plaza del Pilar in Zaragoza.
During the presentation this Monday of the mobilization, the aforementioned organizations have pointed out that the National Strategic Plan of the PAC is a document that hurts them, “it is a humiliation”, “if it does not change we will have to think about abandoning our towns”, “we they are stealing the wallet “,” it is a permanent insult “,” it is a continuity model, they have vilely lied to us “.
Precisely, the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Luis Planas, warned last Thursday in Zaragoza that before December 31, with agreement or without agreement, “you are” there will be a Strategic Plan of the Common Agrarian Policy (PAC).
He acknowledged that there are conflicting positions between autonomous communities and malaise in a large part of the agricultural sector, but before the end of the year the document must be in the Brussels offices.
And it will be so, as he said, “because neither the State nor this Government is going to leave farmers and ranchers uncharged in 2023 as a result of technical debates that may exist between them.”
Planas insisted that he is “very clear” about Aragn’s point of view: “It seems legitimate to me, I say it out loud, as the positions of each of the 17 autonomous communities seem legitimate to me.”
Then it specifies that it is the one who has “the honor and responsibility” to carry a document, not 17 plans.
He added that “the Aragons counselor Joaqun Olona defends Aragon’s postulates, and he does it very well and explains it very well, but then it is necessary to arrive at a syntex because without syntex there is no plan, and if there is not, there is no PAC charge. “.
The agrarian organizations have presented this Monday, at a press conference, the unitary protest table of the mobilization, whose main points are:
That agricultural funds are distributed among those that generate activity and aid to those without any type of activity is eliminated, so that there is equality in those activities that are similar and that inequality between territories and people who do the same thing ends. For a real redistributive aid that helps those who really generate economic, social and environmental activity, living off agriculture and livestock For a CAP that does not harm professionals Strongly demand that the reduction and change of the strata be carried out with agronomic and not merely economic criteria, that generate equality among those who do the same. For specific support to the sheep and cattle sectors, especially extensive livestock, seeking formulas to support livestock farms without a territorial base. inclusion in the CAP of the fruit and vegetable sector with an adequate budget, which allows defending itself against market abuses. eco-schemes that do not undermine the viability of the farms in Aragon. That the Ministry assumes the co-financing of the second pillar that is lost by the European Union. And likewise, that the Ministry and the Government of Aragon recover the budgets of the previous period.
