Welsh farmers drive a convoy of tractors to the Senedd to protest

  • 3 months ago
Senedd for Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire Sam Kurtz has thanked those that stood outside the Senedd to attend a protest in solidarity with the farming community across Wales.
Mr Kurtz helped lead the largest protest in the history of the Senedd, as thousands of farmers and those from rural Wales descended on Cardiff Bay.
As unrest has grown in farming circles following the publication of the Welsh Labour Government’s consultation on the Sustainable Farming Scheme (SFS), focus has also been drawn on the failing Bovine TB eradication strategy and the all-Wales Nitrate Vulnerable Zone (NVZs).
These three policies, which are directly the responsibility of the Welsh Labour Government, have caused untold stress, frustration and anger in rural Wales, as hundreds from West Wales made the journey in protest.
