The EU’s top farm official is begging German farmers to stop mailing her milk.
Farmers have bombarded Agriculture Commissioner Mariann Fischer Boel with some 10,000 liters of milk to show their anger over an EU proposal to increase milk quotas that may cause prices to fall.
Most of the milk — sent by regular mail and addressed to Fischer Boel — had spoiled in transit, and some of the cartons had burst open.
Fischer Boel pleaded with farmers in a message on her blog Monday to stop sending milk, saying she was happy to talk to them directly to find a solution to their grievances.
Reminds me of opposition to the U.S. military draft during the VietNam War – when the Feds were still putting out postage-paid forms to register for the draft at every post office.
Some folks would wrap a brick and attach one of the postage guaranteed cards. Mail them to the Federal Draft Board.
