    Polish Farmers to Join Major Brussels Protest Against Harmful EU Agricultural Policies

    Polish farmers are set to join a significant European protest in Brussels on June 4th, standing firm for the right to consume healthy, locally-produced food and voicing their strong opposition to detrimental agricultural policies imposed by bureaucrats.

    “We fight to ensure our nation continues to enjoy healthy, Polish food produced right here in our homeland,” declared Tomasz Ognisty, a representative of the NSZZ Individual Farmers’ Union “Solidarity,” during an interview with Telewizja Republika. Ognisty was clear that the European Green Deal, in its current form, is unacceptable and detrimental to Polish interests, among other critical issues the union is addressing.
