    Farmers Protest in Defense of Us All, Reveals the True Goal of the Green Deal

    During a recent appearance on Telewizja Republika, Marek Jakubiak, a member of the Kukiz’15 party, alongside Confederation party member Witold Tumanowicz, expressed solid support for the protesting farmers, emphasizing that their fight extends beyond individual interests to safeguard the community at large. Jakubiak criticized the European Union’s Green Deal as an agenda that aims to dismantle traditional agriculture, favoring imports from Ukraine and South America instead, effectively transforming local economies into “living museums.”

    A major farmers’ protest is scheduled to take place in Warsaw tomorrow, marking another significant demonstration against the unregulated influx of products from Ukraine and the contentious policies proposed under the Green Deal. Jakubiak condemned the EU’s ecological regulations as overly complicated and detrimental, not just to farmers but to everyone. He suggested that the entire initiative should be reconsidered due to its convoluted and unsustainable nature.

    Jakubiak and Tumanowicz criticized the European Commission for succumbing to pressure and attempting to patch up the situation amidst growing discontent. They highlighted the dire circumstances faced by farmers, who are operating below profitability thresholds due to the imposition of regulations aimed at decarbonization and reducing emissions, perceived as a death knell for Poland’s economy.

    The speakers emphasized the importance of restoring fair competition, pointing out the disparities between EU member states and non-member countries like Ukraine, which faces fewer restrictions. They argued against succumbing to moral blackmail, noting that profits from Ukrainian agricultural products often end up in Western holdings, underscoring vested interests within the EU to maintain current agreements.

    Jakubiak suggested that the underlying motive behind the Green Deal is to eliminate traditional agriculture to revert to historical plans of integrating Ukraine with Germany, making South America and Ukraine the primary food suppliers for the EU’s 500 million people. This strategy, he argued, would relegate local economies to secondary roles, compromising food quality and affordability.

    The discussion also touched on the anticipated tractor ban in Warsaw, with Jakubiak criticizing the selective application of democratic principles in Poland, hinting at governmental hypocrisy.

    This deepening rift between EU policies and the agricultural sector underscores a growing debate over the future of farming, environmental sustainability, and economic sovereignty within the Union.
