'Milk Brigade' Gain Publicity with Protest Video

07 December 2012

SWEDEN - Dairy farmers calling themselves the "Milk Brigade" have carried out strikes at Varberg port as part of a video appeal that is spreading online.

A video produced by the 'Milk Brigade' has spread via YouTube after being filmed on Sunday in Varberg port. The film shows five tankers driving into the harbour from a ferry.

The protest video uses emotive captions such as 'Danish mailk pours into Sweden', 'Hurry to save Swedish flour production', and 'Our dairy companies are bleeding money'.

Prime Minister, Fredrik Reinfeldt, Minister for Rural Affairs Eskil Erlandsson and LRF's President Helena Jonsson have been blamed as responsible for the accusations laid out in the video.
