"....as confirmed by the Defra Select Committee, dairy farmers currently earn £2.90 per hour.....Tesco have ... been sending out inaccurate replies to cards submitted so far"
I am a member of the campaigning group Farm and have set up a protest outside Tesco in Stroud to take place at noon on Saturday December 4th and which will last for about 2 hours, in support of the 'Just Milk' campaign.
The local Green Party are supporting the campaign and I be grateful if you would let your readers know of this action. If they can join us they should call me on 01453 764376 for further information.
You will recall that the campaign is in support of dairy farmers receiving a fair price for their milk and not the derisory prices paid by Tesco and the other supermarkets. You will also know, that as a result, and as confirmed by the Defra Select Committee, dairy farmers currently earn £2.90 per hour.
The campaign is a post card campaign and supporters are invited to complete the card an send it to Sir Terry Leahy. Tesco have already had their cage rattled and have been sending out inaccurate replies to cards submitted so far.
So, please join myself and others outside Stroud Tesco at 12 noon on Saturday 4th December, and help to set the record right about what is going on in our dairy industry.
Thanks Mary and my best wishes - Julia
