Support The Farmers Protest On Tuesday November 26th

When time spent working is factored into the equation, agriculture is now the most unequal sector of the Southern economy, with the richest 10% of farmers claiming 30% of all income and the bottom half left with less than 20% between them.

When time spent working is factored into the equation, agriculture is now the most unequal sector of the Southern economy, with the richest 10% of farmers claiming 30% of all income and the bottom half left with less than 20% between them.

Farmers face increasing challenges with falling incomes, higher costs, increased regulations, unpredictable weather, isolation and long working hours. This has undoubtedly contributed to the hardship of smaller producers but their primary challenge is the vice-like grip of the major processors and supermarkets.

People Before Profit are in full support of small and medium farmers. We believe they should be given the respect they deserve as custodians of the land. Farmers should be able to make a living from the land and should be supported wherever necessary in a Just Transition to sustainable agriculture. We call on everyone to support the farmers this Tuesday.

Groups will be meeting at Merrion Square with plans to travel to Dáil Éireann.
