Hundreds of Farmers arrive at Dail in dispute over Beef prices and Carbon taxes

Hundreds of Farmers arrive at Dail in dispute over Beef prices and Carbon taxes
farmer tractor convoy heads to Dail Eireann

Hundreds of Farmers arrived in their Tractors at Dail Eireann today for the second day running in a dispute over beef prices and carbon taxes.

The Farmers are looking for a better price for their beef from the Irish Meat Industry and are also protesting against carbon tax increases and the decline of rural Ireland. 

In August and September , a number of Independent farming groups began blockading Meat Factories accross Ireland in the hope of securing a better base price for their beef from the factories . In response , the meat industry began High Court proceedings to remove the farmers with a number of high court orders issued preventing the blockades . 

In September ,  a deal was brokered between some of the farmers and the meat processors that would see increased bonus payments for farmers, more transparency in the industry and the setting up of a taskforce to mediate future disputes . However, there was no increase in the price paid to farmers for their beef and many of the farming groups refused to accept it including the organisers of today's protest , the Independent Farmers of Ireland group . 

IFA presidential candidate John Coughlan has said the Farm Community in Ireland is fractioning and a disconnect has seeped in between the IFA and farming communities .

"A fractioning farm community is bad for farmers. A disconnect has seeped in between the IFA and those it should serve. As a result, we cannot be surprised by ongoing events."

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said the government has no control over the price of beef ... "there are some things the Government controls and there are some things the Government doesn’t, and the beef price isn’t one of them . Just like the price of oil or the price of flour or the price of milk, it’s a price that is set by the market,the price that beef farmers are getting in Ireland is similar to the European average and higher than it is outside of Europe. So that is the truth of it. There isn’t anything we can do to increase the price of beef"

Melissa O'Neill , By-election Candidate for Wexford at farmer protest in dublin

farmers are the hardest working people i know , they deserve a decent price for their work .
#
a lot of farmers are worried about their livestock because the green party want to bring back wolves to Ireland . The cost associated with protecting their cattle from wolves would be phenominal . also the greens want to take away their farmland and turn it into the wolves forest , not to mention the rural car share scheme where hundreds of people living in rural ireland share 1 car between them . And on top of that all the Carbon Taxes being shoved onto them
#
CAP has to go , its keeping the little farmers down and making the big ones very rich . its so unfair whats happening in this country .
#
people in rural ireland are human beings too , but this government is treating us with contempt , it seems the only thing we are good for now is DP centres and wind turbines .

Thank You Mike Irish for highlighting this most important issue

Reply to Larry Muddiman and Celtic Revival

You are both absolutely correct!. Firstly Celtic Revival, the whole reason behind such rulings are to shrink out the smaller players (small farmers) and in doing so create a body of large multi-billion Euro, business owned and run Giant Farms. Once achieved then the issue of farming bodies / unions behind small farmers is NO longer an issue!.

Larry, Same issue applies. You see the bulk of the vote is in Dublin. ALL Political parties have come to realise that THEY do not any longer need the votes outside the capital. We are literally at a point in our history where Dublin has the majority of votes. Ergo the Rural vote is of less value, Sadly. As a Dublin man living in rural Ireland I see it clearly now.

Thank You for your reply Dublin Lad, In all honesty I agree!. Though I can't profess to having read the book, the reaction it has received even from THE most Pro-Trans quarters suggests that it is indeed, as you say "unsuitable for anyone of any age ". As for your suggestion that there is a powerful lobby behind it, again you are correct!. All indications from within academia and the media, suggests that there is a Pro-Paedophilia motive behind the pushing and hoped acc

You are absolutely correct Dublin Lad! The whole thing is about taking control by any means and in the process making their cause appear justified. It's not by accident that BLM are on Parade and demanding reparations, while at the very same time ANTIFA are enforcing socialist base principles, via their herd of sheeple of LGBTQ and Woke followers! alongside WOKE educators currently brainwashing the next generation, (I refuse to use "Teachers").
