60 organisations from agriculture and society are calling for the "We're fed up!" demonstration on 21 January. The GRÜNE LIGA is taking part. The slogan of the 2023 agricultural turnaround demonstration is "Good food for all - instead of profits for a few". Thousands of people are expected to march through Berlin's government quarter to kick off the world's largest agricultural trade fair, the Green Week, in support of consistent climate protection, species-appropriate animal husbandry, the preservation of biodiversity and global solidarity.
Climate crisis, food poverty, dying farms - the list of failures in agricultural, social and environmental policy is long. The balance sheet after one year of traffic light government is sobering and can be summarised as "too slow and too little". The "We're fed up!" alliance demands more speed in the socially just agricultural and food transition. In concrete terms, this means: fair producer prices for farms and the food trade, as well as much more support for those affected by poverty, so that they can afford fairly and sustainably produced, healthy food.
The pandemic and the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine show how important climate-friendly and future-proof agriculture is. Currently, around 60 per cent of arable land in the country is used for animal feed and another 13 per cent is used for biogas. We need much more plant-based food for people and to preserve the farms that provide us with good food. Therefore, one of the core messages of the demonstration is: Plate instead of trough and tank!

The #WHES23 demands:
To the appeal
Every year in January, thousands of farmers, food artisans, animal, environmental and nature conservationists, activists for global solidarity, committed young people and many more demonstrate in Berlin under the slogan "We are fed up with the agricultural industry! Together they stand up for an agriculture in which animals are kept in a species-appropriate way, the environment and climate are protected, farmers receive fair prices for their food and all people can afford healthy food.
