"You will not move a single liter of milk throughout Spain." Milk ranchers have said enough. Nor the numerous concentrations of protest in the last month - even in Galicia to withdraw from the linear supermarkets the milk cartons from the brands of the main industries - nor the meetings with the Ministry of Agriculture as a mediator with the industry and the Distribution have been able to alter the prices they receive for their production, lower already (0.33 / liter on average) than to water.
Recommended in Valencia by Don Juan (León), ranchers of the main milk producing territories in Spain have decided that if the dairy industries do not pay at least the cost of production (€ 0.41, that is, 24% more than in The present) before the next day, December 15 will go to the national "indefinite" strike of deliveries, as announced by the United Dairy Rattle platform.
"The production costs continue to rise without stopping, especially the feed", complains to the world José Luis Pérez Barreiro, president of the Agricultural Association, which brings together more than 400 Luga and La Coruña ranchers. This rancher recalls that for the consumer the milk has risen up to six cents per liter in the last dates, "but we do not get that increase to us."
As a consequence, the announcement of strike "is the hardest measure that a livestock can adopt but, at the same time, is the only one that can reverse this chaotic situation in which the sector is immersed," says the statement from said group , that it clarifies: "Milk is ours and the only ones that are enriched with it are the ones who buy it."
On the paralysis of deliveries, milk producers emphasize that the strike "will be indefinite over time, not by moving through the roads or a single tanker of milk; we do not want to harm the carriers, who consist that they are happening so Evil like us, because the industry has them equally asphyxiated at prices, but we can not let a single liter of milk in Spain in those strike days, "predict. Thus, they clarify that they will keep meetings for "the creation of informative pickets that will be active on the roads of our country."
The agreement was reached ranchers from Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria, Castilla y León and Andalusia (the territories with the most production of the country) and urged the whole group "not to sign contracts that do not cover production costs, because it marks it The Law of the Food Chain, being illegal that industries obligate us to sign contracts that attempt against said law. " In this regard, they urge the Ministry of Agriculture and the counseling of said CC.AA. to which "do a mediation in this conflict" because it seems "that they are not aware of the seriousness of the situation and before the indolence and inhabitant they are practicing ".
Finally, remember that milk livestock in Spain gives more than 30,000 families, most fixed to the rural environment that, to continue like this, "will be absed in to disappearance" because "the economy of ranchers is not To wait more, being unknown a price that continues to suffocate us to ruin.
