Berlin (AFP) Before the Germany-wide planned demonstrations of farmers, the FDP has sharply criticized the agricultural policy of the Federal Government. The protests made it clear that the policy of Agriculture Minister Julia Klöckner (CDU) and Environment Minister Svenja Schulze (SPD) "an entire industry threatens to withdraw the livelihood," said the FDP agricultural expert Gero Hocker the news agency AFP. If problems are repeatedly "blamed on farmers", it will not do justice to the environment or the profession.
