Switzerland: demonstration in Bern

 

Over one hundred milk producers gathered on July 12, to demonstrate against the inaction of the branch organisation milk (BO Milk) regarding the dairy market situation.

 

In order to point out their discontent, producers filled up a swimming pool with milk and they put figurines of representatives of the branch organisation to symbolize that they « are swimming in overproduction » according to Nicolas Bezençon, coordinator of Uniterre, swiss EMB member.

 

Representatives of Union Sud des Paysans and a representative of the branch organisation were there for the occasion. Thus the union Uniterre explained in front of these representatives its will to modify in deep the current rules in the BO Milk.

The Swiss farmers union demands the general applicability of the BO Milk decisions to all dairy farmers to be accepted by the branch organisation.

So whilst farmers of the EU were demonstrating today in Brussels criticising the High Level Group propositions, in Switzerland dairy farmers expressed their anger about the so-called ideal for the future liberal European dairy policy. All that glitters is not gold.
