We Said It Was Not Over - Polish Farmers Patience Runs Out And Spanish Riot Police Take On Farm Protesters

 12 February 2024

For the opening weeks of this year the story dominating Boggart Blog and Daily Stirrer news and comment has been the farmers protests that have spread across Europe, as our food producers rebelled against the oppressive policiers imposed by ruling elites more interested in virtue signalling that the welfare of their people. The farmers, feeling their complaints that high taxes, rising fuel costs and 'green' regulations limiting the amount of diesel, fertilisers and pesticides they can use and the amount of livestock they can keep (cow farts and chicken shit are destroying the planet dontcha know,) were being ignored and it was becoming impossible to operate a farm profitably.

Last week as we reported a scaling back of the protests in France, Germany and Belgium after the EU and the governments involved caved in to some demands the story carried a caveat that the farmers rebellion was not over. It has already flared up again.  

Polish farmers announce nationwide strike in protest against EU agricultural policies

Polish farmers have declared a nationwide strike, intending to blockade all border crossings with Ukraine, in response to what they describe as a catastrophic impact of EU policies.

Farmers across Poland have declared a general strike, appealing to the public for understanding and awareness that their industry is defending itself against being driven into bankruptcy.

Farmer protests are raging in many European countries, primarily due to the European Commission’s ideologically driven Green Deal policies and the flooding of European markets with agricultural products from international agro-holdings in Ukraine. An agreement between the EU and Kyiv on this matter has just been extended, leading to farmer protests, including in Brussels.

In Poland, the situation is becoming increasingly dramatic. In response, the Trade Union of Individual Farmers “Solidarity” has announced a general strike of farmers throughout the country.

“Our patience has run out,” the farmers say. They point to the European Commission’s stance on Ukrainian agricultural imports. Additionally, the inaction of the Polish authorities and their declarations of cooperation with the European Commission, along with the Polish government’s announcement to respect all decisions regarding the import of agricultural produce and food products from Ukraine, leave them no choice but to declare a general strike.

The Expose, 10 February 2024

Farmer protests have been taking place since Tuesday throughout Spain.  Yesterday they announced that would they take their protest to the Socialist Party headquarters in Madrid today.  The government has announced that they would deploy riot police to avoid farmers blocking roads as they had done for the previous four days.

Meanwhile, yesterday, social media users were widely sharing footage of police aggression towards protestors.  Many are claiming these are not the usual police officers but rather members of Eurogendfor.

On the second day of the farmers’ protests, EuroNews reported that the protests, involving several thousand people on tractors and in other vehicles, had not been backed by Spain´s three main farming organisations  However,  they had called for separate protests in the coming days.

Farmers blocked roads across Spain for the third day running on Thursday with the main farmers’ unions joining the demonstrations.  France 24 reported that some of Thursday’s actions were organised by Spain’s three main farming unions Asaja, Coag and UPA.

“Some demonstrations deteriorated into scuffles when police moved in to remove roadblocks, prompting several arrests, with the interior ministry raising to 19 the total number detained since the start of the protests,” France 24 wrote.

Yesterday, the fourth day of blocking streets across the country, the protests centred around the northern cities of Oviedo, Pamplona and Zaragoza, with tractors clogging several city streets and commuter roads. In many places, farmers kept their protests going overnight, ABC News reported.

Meanwhile, on social media on Friday the video below was being widely shared with people commenting that members of the Eurogendfor are being used against protestors.  For example, the video was shared on Twitter with the comment: “It’s being reported that the EU has deployed their European paramilitary police Eurogendfor, to crush the farmers in Granada.” ...
