The landowners threaten with a 9 day lock out
May 31, 2012
Within hours of the approval of the tax reform on arable land in the Province of Buenos Aires, rural producers who oppose the measure announced a commercial strike for 9 days.
The Agricultural Buenos Aires issued a statement claiming that the cease trade takes place “at the affront to the institutions meant to be taken by decree skyrocketing tax valuations.”
“The confiscatory tax blow occurs in a context in which producers are strongly affected by drought and now the first flood, and perpetuating an unprecedented transfer of resources from inland communities to the national government in a partnership in reverse” they add.
The strike is like a lock-out bosses, the closure of production and marketing by the landowners, and would last 9 days. This is the most important protest of the landed interest from the export of taxes on the agricultural in 2008.
