🍼 WASTING MILK AS A PROTEST🍼

14 posts in this topic

 

Here in Italy, where I live, the milk price is falling down and the shepherds are wasting their milk as a sign of protest (watch the video below).

What is your opinion?

I feel very hurt and upset by watching these scenes. I know it's a powerful way to make their voices heard, but I think there must be another powerful conscious way to get heard. Any suggestions?

@Rilles @outlandish  ahahahxD

Once I try to be a serious guy...

Just to downplay the drama, let's assume that "they are feeding the ground"

@F A B do you have that expression in Italian?

It's a sad waste, too bad they couldn't make butter out of it to give to the hungry and still get their point across.

A lot of the milk can be produced more cheaply in Austria, where there is more mechanisation. Although Austria and Germany are dependent on Russian Gas. They also cut the tops of trees to feed to the cattle or use as heating material. I suppose if they could sell locally more easily that would help. I was backpacking once and stayed with a family in Austria that produced cheese in the back of a van, the equipment was specialist stuff bought from Switzerland. Taxes meant that it was more profitable to produce cheese for the farmer than to buy the milk and produce the cheese in an offsite location. The whey was basically wasted as not be worth processing, in an offsite location that could be different.

The French are pretty fond of cheese, they have it for breakfast. But in France it's open tax evasion, produce cheese from cattle in the Pyrenees and sell it at market sometimes. It's kind of silly really as they have lots of rubbish Camembert in the supermarkets.

Canada is pretty insane they smuggle cheese in from the USA.

It's fucking immature and unconscious. No other way to look at it, really. :(
