Towards the end of farmers' mobilization? The majority unions FNSEA and Young Farmers called for suspending the blockades of farmers in France, this Thursday, February 1, after new announcements from Prime Minister Gabriel Attal. But they wish to continue to mobilize to make their demands heard, said the president of Young Farmers Arnaud Gaillot, calling for “change[r] modes of action”.
The president of the FNSEA, Arnaud Rousseau, for his part welcomed “tangible progress” and “listening” from the head of government “to try to understand what our issues are, receive us, exchange, discuss and finally announce in several salvos of emergency measures.
“At the same time, we question the deafness of Europe,” he added, referring to “the growing incomprehension between a technostructure walled in its offices in Brussels and the realities of what we experience in our exploitations”. Regarding the French announcements, “there are also things which are not there and which will need to be clarified,” added Arnaud Rousseau.
