Individual farmers are descending upon Dublin today to campaign “against the Government’s continued discrimination of the farming community and rural Ireland as a whole”.
The objective of the protest is to highlight the demise of farming and rural Ireland.
“Farmers are being driven into poverty, debt and ultimately off the land. Family farms are the lifeblood and economic engines of small towns and villages across rural Ireland.” a statement from the group outlined.
“The annihilation of the family farm will have catastrophic consequences for every parish in the county. It will send destructive tremors through all other agricultural businesses and sectors which are the fabric to many rural villages and towns.”
“We are holding this protest so that the government can acknowledge the crisis that is facing so many of its citizens and actively plan to combat these issues.”
