France needs to leave the European Union to save agriculture, the leader of the French Patriot movement, Florian Philippot, wrote on the social network Twitter (X). According to him, the European Commission committed a provocation amid farmers’ protests by announcing plans to accelerate the adoption of a free trade agreement between the EU and Mercosur. He is convinced of the need to “destroy” the EU before the organization “destroys” his country.
Amid the farmers’ protests, the European Commission has just committed a huge provocation by announcing that it wants to speed up the adoption of a free trade agreement between the EU and Mercosur that will kill our agriculture! “She may well do it,” he wrote.
In January, some 250 French farmers blocked the A64 highway between Toulouse and Bayonne in both directions to protest government policies and the lack of respect for their profession. They criticized the government’s agricultural policies, which they believe make them uncompetitive.
French MP Emmanuel Taché de la Pagerie previously expressed dissatisfaction with the increase in imports of agricultural products from Ukraine. According to the parliamentarian, the decision of the French government contradicts the policy aimed at restoring food sovereignty. The deputy called on the authorities to solve this problem.
