Overwhelming unanimity against Garzón: ranchers, industrial, veterinary and even autonomic governments of the PSOE: He has done a terrible damage, he must resign or be dismissed

The only one who has saved silence so far is the Minister of Agriculture, Fishing and Food, Luis Flat. Perhaps a sound silence, but silence after all the political responsible maximum in the defense of the entire agricultural sector. The rest of the sectors that have felt 'assaulted' by the statements of the Alberto Garzón Minister of Consumption have expressed indignation. And they have done it unanimously, without distinctions or political colors. The agrarian organizations and UPA (antagonics) and COAG have also been added on Tuesday. That is, unanimity. Ranchers of any point in Spain, from north to south and east to west; industrialists (the six main professional organizations wrote a letter to the president of the Government Pedro Sánchez, condemning such statements); Veterinarians from different schools in Spain and in the same way passed through the autonomous governments, including those of the PSOE.

This Wednesday, he wrote in the Twitter account of him: The Minister must rectify: "Negative propaganda can not be propagated from such an important sector abroad. Our meat meets all control standards and is top quality". But the minister did not rectify, in any case he said that he was misinterpreted. This line followed the spokesman for the Junta de Extremadura, Juan Antonio González (Fernandez Vara was not pronounced): "When an interview is done, and I say it by own experience, you have to be careful with the statements that are made", since According to he said, "maybe he wants to communicate one thing and he communicates another that maybe he was not the intention of Mr. Garzón."

The Minister stressed that Garzón's position is not the position of the Government, but the positions of the Executive in relation to livestock are the agreements that come out of the Council of Ministers and that President Pedro Sánchez has made statements supporting the country's livestock sector.

In these same terms, the Minister of Education and Vocational Training, Pilar Alegría, who has assured that "what everyone knows" is that Spain "is a large producer country of quality" and in which they coexist so much Intensive models as extensive.

Pedro Cheap, president of Asaja, warned: "Livestock in Spain lives on export, you can not move a message like this in the international press" and abounded: "It is another irresponsibility of the Minister Garzón, and endangers thousands of farms that comply with Community and national regulations, fulfilling the law, so that this minister is an authentic irresponsible and from Asaja we demand from the Government of the Government its faulty and immediate cessation because the Spanish livestock sector does not need more attacks and itself . Meanwhile, UPA insisted: "We demand that you rectify or resign. And to help you rectify, we invite you to visit Spanish farms and stop counting lies." And COAG demanded Sánchez to adopt measures if Garzón does not rectify his statements publicly

"We do not understand why it focuses on the criticism when it is notorious and real that there are other economic sectors that generate more greenhouse gases than the livestock sector itself, case of the large transport multinationals and the powerful energy companies."
