(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #279 - Right of reply: "Some standards are in favor of peasant agriculture" (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 4 Feb 2018 09:49:50 +0200

Maxime Bergonso, of the Confederation paysanne wished to answer to an article published two months ago in Alternative libertaire. ---- In the November 2017 issue of Alternative Libertaire, Pierre, a farmer in Saône-et-Loire, accuses, in his article " Norms have not prevented mad cow ", the peasant Confederation to defend " the good standards ", the " good controls " and to be a co-managerial union. ---- This is not the first time that the Outsized collective is attacking us on our union work and we want to make things clear. ---- In the preamble, we wish to reaffirm our solidarity with struggling peasants who feel they are rightly victims of excessive controls or unjust standards. We are just as revolted to see the peasants treated as criminals as was the case for Jerome Laronze.

Several peasants of the peasant Confederation went to a meeting of the collective. It seems important to us to work together to protect the peasants, in this sense we reiterate our proposal of meeting made to the collective " Hors standards " and already formulated to its leaders during the 30 years of the peasant Confederation, event in which Yannick Ogor and Xavier Noulhianne have had a platform.

Now, there is a debate about the strategy and the spectrum of action. It must not be forgotten that certain norms and laws stem from a period when class relations were not the same as today.

Consider the status of renting, introduced in 1945, which protects the tenant from the owner or the control of structures, in the 1960s, which favors the installation rather than the expansion. It seems to us that these laws and the norms they engender are norms in favor of peasant agriculture.

However, the State and the European Union are striving daily to attack peasant work by tightening the controls of CAP aid, applying industrial standards for controls on livestock or farm products, and this unacceptable. For the Farmers' Confederation it is therefore necessary to establish a balance of forces sufficient to ensure that the specificities of peasant agriculture are recognized and that industrial agriculture is constrained in its development.

In this case, if fighting against the CRS against the slaughter of ducks in the Basque Country, but also propose a guide so that the norms of the farms are adapted to the peasant farm is of co-management, then it is a vision that we do not share. We prefer to say that it is union work that moves the struggle from an individual level to a collective level.

Mr. Bergonso (Peasant Confederation)
