Copa-Cogeca along with other local federations is planning a flash action on 11th July in the morning from 8am onwards outside the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France.
The Nature Restoration Law will push our farmers and producers off their land, out of business, and remove agriculture from our rural areas. The three committees of the European Parliament which tried to improve this text proposed by the European Commission, have all rejected the proposal! The reason is simple: the text as it stands has been poorly conceived, lacks clear funding and has consulted but not listened to those who will be expected to implement it on the ground. Our message is clear: YES to nature restoration, NO to THIS law on Nature Restoration. This proposal is unworkable, adds to many other initiatives that will also have strong impacts (IED, SUR) and should therefore be returned to sender!
