European Fishermen fight for their Lives Against the European Commission Free-Trade Malthusianism

Black propaganda operations targetting the growing ferment against rising food prices and scarcity have been launched in Germany by socalled "experts".

These "experts" are, in fact, propagandists for the EU Commission's policy of destroying the traditional family farm in Europe, and they have no trouble getting covered in the German media.

Targetting the dairy farmers' protests, Bernhard Bruemmer attacks the "new milk price cartel" that "would oppose the free market," adding that the milk delivery boycott of Germany's farmers (to dairies) would go nowhere, because dairy farmers in Denmark and the Netherlands would easily step in and deliver to German dairies. That, he says, is the law of the free market, and nobody should interfere.

Achim Spiller, another of these "experts," also warned that the milk delivery boycott can't achieve its aims, because many dairies simply could not pay the price which the farmers say they need. Many dairies produce almost exclusively for the globalized market, and therefore depend on the laws of the market as they exist on the world level. If dairies paid the farmers what they demand, he warned, they would go bankrupt, because they would lose all competitiveness.

Lastly, Stephan von Cramon-Traubadel said that "the approach of the European Union over the past 15 years, namely to replace agricultural subsidies with direct payments for special services to protect the environment, has to be supported."
