Update: Dairy farmers’ protests throughout Europe on 12th November 2015

Day of action with strong protests against ignorant EU milk policy - Dairy farmers call for Market Responsibility Programme

The crisis in the milk market has been able to spread like wildfire because there is no crisis instrument to counter it. Every country in Europe is affected – all dairy farmer fight for their survival and for the preservation of milk-producing regions.

On 12th November, major protests will thus be held by dairy farmers all over Europe. We invite you to attend these demonstrations.

By means of strong symbolic actions, farmers will make clear that they do not accept the current ignorant dairy policy. In the run-up to the Agriculture Council meeting held in Brussels (16-17/11), European dairy farmers will send a clear message to policy makers:

“Put the Market Responsibility Programme (MRP) into action as a crisis instrument in the milk market!”
