SYRIZA members visited the public market of Kozani, handing out leaflets and updating, producers, traders and consumers on the negative implications of the new measures contained in the bill submitted to parliament.
The world of public markets is in turmoil, as extermination fines are provided to sellers, punitive provisions, barriers to licensing, turning producers into traders and finally facilitating entry into popular corporate schemes, subverting the role and concept of the institution of the popular market.
In essence, the producers are trying to get out of the popular, but also to drive consumers to supermarket chains.
Collective federations and associations of farmers in the public markets oppose the draft law of the Ministry of Development, even submitting their own counter-proposal.
As SYRIZA - PROGRESSIVE ALLIANCE we declare the need to support the institution of popular markets, Noting that the aims of the bill are to alter the institution of public markets, to serve individuals who will manage them.
NO TO THE PRIVATIZATION OF POPULAR MARKETS
