Communiqué of the Presidium of the National Council of the NSZZ of Individual Farmers “Solidarity”

We express firm opposition to the actions of the Police, 6 March, 2024 and other provocateurs whose sole purpose was to provoke riots and other unlawful incidents.

The provocative and violent behavior of the uniformed services, whose sole task is to ensure the peaceful conduct of the protest, is unacceptable. Recordings available to the public confirm provocations on the part of the police and reveal a number of irregularities in the actions taken by them.

The Presidium of the National Council of the NSZZ of Individual Farmers maintains the existing protest actions and sets the next date for the All-Poland General Strike for March 20, 2024.

We will not give up as farmers until our demands are fully implemented!

NSZZ RI Solidarity’s request for a shield for agriculture in connection with the war in Ukraine

On March 13 this year. NSZZ RI “Solidarity” Chairman Tomasz Obszanski sent letters to Prime Minister Donald Tusk and Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Czeslaw Siekierski regarding a shield for agriculture in connection with the war in Ukraine.

“The Independent Self-Governing Trade Union of Individual Farmers “Solidarity” maintains its demands for a halt to the introduction of the so-called “Green Deal,” which we believe will result, among other things, in the liquidation of family farming, industry and huge costs for households in Poland and the entire European Union.

We continue to demand an immediate halt to the uncontrolled import of agricultural crops and foodstuffs mainly from Ukraine and Russia, into the European Union especially Poland, and the restoration of the protection of the EU market under the rules in place before Russia’s assault on Ukraine.

Overcoming the Robotic Mind: Why Humanity Must Come Through

Duty-free imports destroy Polish agriculture, especially commodity family farms. It does not support Ukraine’s defense potential, but only brings in crores of profits from unfair competition to multinational corporations. It also effectively destroys the friendship between the Polish and Ukrainian peoples born after the outbreak of war.

The current situation of agriculture in our country, which is mainly the result of the misguided policies of the European Union incompatible with the previous principles of the Common Agricultural Policy, requires decisive protective measures, similar to those taken to rescue business entities from the effects of Covid-19.

We demand the immediate introduction of a “war shield in and around agriculture,” sustaining the economic viability of farms affected by the irresponsible policies of the European Union and the Polish state after the outbreak of war.

We estimate that the value of the aid should be about 15 billion euros, co-financed by the European Union.” – wrote the Chairman of the Union in the submitted position.
