French farmers dump a mountain of manure outside pro-Emmanuel Macron MP’s office

Overburdened French farmers protesting against a ‘free trade’ agreement with Canada dumped heaps of manure outside the office of Monique Iborra, a lawmaker from President Macron’s globalist party La Republique En Marche (LREM).

The act of protest comes in response to the approval of a controversial free trade agreement with Canada that would see the removal of tariffs on nearly all goods and services traveling between Canada and the EU.

French farmers fear that the decision will bring unjust competition to French farmers who are already struggling economically.

In response to the event, Iborra tweeted, “Two tonnes of manure outside a building where there are also doctors, dentists and other professions which receive members of the public – it’s irresponsible as well as futile.”

The FDSEA farmers’ trade union has claimed responsibility for the action on their Facebook page. The union had invited then deputies of the Haute-Garonne region to discuss the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), but none of the deputies responded.
