The ranchers demand the resignation of Garzón by saying that Spain exports poor quality meat

The Minister of Consumer Alberto Garzón has unleashed another political storm by pointing out in 'The British newspaper' The Guardian 'that Spain exports bad quality meat of battered animals.

At one time of the interview, the Minister of Consumer, in particular, describes to his understanding the practices of the macrogranjas in our country: "Extensive breeding is a form of environmentally sustainable livestock and that has a lot of weight in areas of Spain as Asturias , parts of Castile and León, Andalusia and Extremadura. What is not at all are the macrogranjas "and adds in this sense:" They find a town in a depopulated part of Spain and put 4,000, or 5,000, or 10,000 heads of livestock . They contaminate the ground, pollute the water and then export this petty meat of maltreatted animals. "

In addition to political criticism as the President of Castilla y León, Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, who has invited Garzón to "rectify or resign", from the representatives of the ranchers have begun to react the representatives of the farmers,

Thus, the main agrarian organizations, both aspass and UPA, have asked today an immediate rectification by the minister or its dismissal, and they have required him to stop attacking "again" the ranchers, since, "in the case of Our province, the Guadiato Comarcas, Pedroches and the Sierra can be seen seriously harmed with this type of statements. "

The agrarian organization has regretted that it is another chapter more than the "attitude of sectarianism" of Minister Garzón and does not understand how since the presidency of the Government it is possible to maintain a ministry that is "continually attacking an important sector as agrogate, and by So the interests of Spain ".

After these statements, Asaja has asked the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, who did not produce the resignation, "immediately" immediately "to Minister Garzón for" avoiding greater evils ", since the primary sector" needs support and not demonizing or attacks Continuing "from the Government.

Likewise, the agricultural organization has urged Sánchez to delete the Ministry of Consumption, since it considers that "it is only dedicated to attacking the livestock sector by your minister and your team."

Asaja joins the union of small farmers and farmers (UPA) that has also requested the Minister of Consumer Tuesday that "rectify or resign" after a "new attack" to the Spanish livestock in the international press.

UPA has qualified "irresponsible and directly false" Garzón statements on the export of poor quality meat that comes from battered animals. "In Spain there are no battered animals, Mr. Minister," they have stressed.

In the aforementioned interview, Garzón refers to the criticisms received in summer when he began his crusade against the meat sector, affirming that most of them came from men who, "felt that his masculinity would be affected by not being able to eat a piece of meat or do a roast".

In that sense, it also affirms that women received their message much better against meat consumption, so it is finally attributed the success of its proclamations: "civil society organizations and environmental partnerships, pediatricians, doctors and nutritionists They went out to defend us until the end. " And he concludes "I think that helped us win the debate." For the minister, "other countries are quite advanced in this, but in Spain it has been a taboo," he says.

Garzón refers to the controversy that also generated last July, when he published a video on his Twitter account in which he assured that "14.5% of greenhouse gas emissions comes from livestock, especially from The macrogranjas, while so that we have 1 kilo of beef are required 15,000 liters of water ".

The video was framed within a campaign of the Ministry of Consumer under the # HEAVING MANAGE. It was such the dolvarada that rose between the agrarian sector that the president of the government, Pedro Sánchez, had to go publicly the next day to try to lower the controversy when he assured: "" To me, where they put a chuletón to the point, that is Unbeatable ", third.
