Source: Die Linke “The simultaneity of the corona pandemic and the outbreak of African swine fever (ASF) is a great challenge for all those directly or indirectly affected, not just in Brandenburg. It can only be mastered together and with solidarity. If, of all things, slaughterhouses are stealing from their joint responsibility to the detriment of the pig keepers, that is scandalous. Federal and state governments must do everything possible to prevent the further spread of the ASP, but also to prevent social hardship, ”says Kirsten Tackmann, agricultural policy spokeswoman for DIE LINKE parliamentary group, in the run-up to the“ meat ”industry discussion with Federal Minister Julia Klöckner. Tackmann continues: “It should not only be about pig farming itself, but also about everyone who finds themselves in social hardship due to necessary epidemic protection measures. At the same time, the current situation shows all the more clearly how urgent the conversion to sustainable and socially acceptable animal husbandry is . Because the strategy of the cheapest possible production of goods for the anonymous world market has massively increased the risk and the economic consequences of such events. We have to go back to a supply function with sustainably produced food. “
