Sanna: “Nothing in the party programs. So we close”
Sardegna Live editorial staff
The Sardinian shepherds, bent by the expensive energy and the price increases of raw materials, ten days before the political elections are thinking of a new mobilization and announce “sensational initiatives if we do not get answers in the short term”.
“The world of the countryside is suffering from increases that have become unsustainable, but on this there is the total absence of politics which, a few days after the vote, does not make a single mention of our category in the electoral programs”.
Speaking is Nenneddu Sanna the shepherd of Orune among the protagonists of the protests that broke out in 2019 throughout the island to ask for a fair price for milk: “and today – he assures – things have got worse”.
“Here speculation on workers is dominating: the electricity bill and diesel fuel cost three times, feed and seeds double, just to give a few examples – reports Sanna – We must first of all know what price we will pay for milk this season and if we have to invest in our farms or if we have to close.
So instead the milk processors, the feed mills will unload the increases in the bills on our category and what should we do? Unloading on consumers by selling triple milk and cheese? I fear that our category will be crushed by these crazy prices “.CopyAMP code.
The pastor sets the agenda for politics: “There is talk of depopulation, of insularity, right issues, but we do not go to the bottom of the problem. Politicians also speak of workers: if our sector collapses, which is fundamental above all in the countries of the center Sardinia, here everything collapses and it is certain that depopulation will continue to gallop.
Those who are applying to represent us in Parliament tell us if they help us or if we have to close. I repeat – concludes Nenneddu Sanna -: without answers we will give life to sensational events to defend our work and our land “.
