Gabriel Attal will receive the FNSEA and the Young Farmers Tuesday afternoon

Gabriel Attal will receive the FNSEA and the Young Farmers on Tuesday afternoon while the majority union is considering a resumption of actions if the Prime Minister's recent announcements are not followed by concrete effects by the Agricultural Show. The meeting will be held at 4:30 p.m. in the presence of Minister of Agriculture Marc Fesneau and his delegate minister Agnès Pannier-Runacher, Matignon said on Monday.

“We are not in the right tempo (...), we must accelerate the tempo,” warned the president of the FNSEA, Arnaud Rousseau, on Sunday, urging government action before the Show which begins on February 24 in Paris and where a number of politicians are expected, including the President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron.

After two weeks of road blockages and sometimes tumultuous actions, the demonstrators broke camp at the beginning of February after three bursts of announcements from Gabriel Attal on subjects as diverse as pesticides, farmers' pensions or synthetic meat. But since then there has been “no ministerial meeting” either with the Minister of Agriculture or with the Prime Minister, and “no follow-up point”, lamented Mr. Rousseau.

“We put very concrete proposals on the table (...). If we were made fun of, obviously it couldn't happen in the classic conditions of welcoming the President of the Republic,” he warned. “No one has any interest in walking around with us. Because if there is no meeting, in the end we will come back,” he insisted, once again outlining a possible resumption of the farmers’ movement.

He wants “concrete decisions that can be seen on the farms”, he said again on Monday on France Info, even if “we understand that, regarding the law, we need a little delay”. The president of the FNSEA does not intend to make the Agricultural Show “a moment of tension and ultimately violence”. It “is a moment of welcoming the public in which we explain our profession”.
