Germans want sane agriculture

19th of January was an entertaining day in Berlin. You could see a long column of tractors drive under the Brandenburg Gate, and about 35,000 protesters crowding the streets.

Many held placards reading “Eating is political.”

Their cause: replace industrial agriculture with the human kind. They want to get rid of the huge subsidies to agribusiness, and instead encouragement of non-toxic, soil-building, organic mixed farming. You know, what used to grow food once upon a time, before food killed people, and farming became a major contributor to climate change.

I hope governments listen.
