About a thousand farmers from around the country demonstrated today (Tuesday) in Moshav Avivim near the Lebanese border, in protest of the reform of food imports in the Arrangements Law.

In protest, farmers called on the government to reach an agreement and not act unilaterally.



"The reform of the finance and agriculture ministers will eliminate agriculture in Israel, will not lower prices for citizens - but will only enrich the marketing chains and importers," said Avshalom Villan, secretary general of the Israel Agricultural Association. "They sell the agricultural produce twice and three times the price that the farmer receives, and in the intermediation gaps that increase the prices, the ministers choose to harm the egg, fruit and vegetable growers who keep the borders with their bodies."

According to Villan, the farmers do not oppose the reform, but its details should be determined in cooperation and not by the government alone.

"Growth quotas are an economic asset and a government cannot take them for granted, out of whim and without compensation to farmers who will immediately lose their livelihoods. We are not against change, but not like that - without dialogue and within the framework of the Arrangements Law."
