On Tuesday the 11th of May 2006 activists, amongst who the Paraguayan peasant Jorge Galeano, have protested in front of the office of the Zuidelijke Land en Tuinbouw Organisatie (ZLTO, the farmers union of the South of the Netherlands). As the main lobby for the Dutch large scale meat-industry and as the owner of the biggest meat-processor in Europe VION Food Group, the ZLTO is co-responsible for the misery caused by massive imports of animal feed from other parts of the world. For example the deforestation, pollution, land-conflicts, violence and poverty because of the massive expansion of large scale soy production, an important ingredient of animal feed in Europe. Jorge Galeano, Javiera Rulli from the Argentinian organisation Grupo de Reflexión Rural and the rest of the activists use their action to ask solidarity from dutch farmers and farmers unions with their colleagues in Zuid-Amerika.
