On April 1, 2017, an abandoned 65-hectare farm belonging to BBVA, a large Spanish bank, which has recovered it from an expropriated owner (a bankrupt real estate contractor after the 2008 building crisis) is occupied by 200 activists of the SOC/SAT (Andalusian union of agricultural labourers). This bank receives between €20,000 and €30,000 in EU premiums each year.
The SOC/SAT farmers need our support and our solidarity, come numerous and numerous to this evening. It is also part of the campaign for food sovereignty in view of the next vote (probably this autumn) which will take place here in Switzerland.
