Following the nationwide week of action, Germany's agriculture and transport industry are jointly calling for a large demonstration on January 15, 2024 at 11:30 a.m. at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. Farmers, the transportation industry, shippers and truckers will express their discontent with the federal government's budget cuts there. The objective is to make it clear to politicians once again what it means to put the competitiveness and existence of farmers and medium-sized transport companies at risk. The DBV and the BGL defend a clear but peaceful and democratic protest.

For competitive agriculture, support for agricultural diesel and vehicle tax exemption are essential. Therefore, the German farmers' association, together with the state farmers' associations and LsV Germany, are calling for the tax increases planned by the federal government for agriculture to be withdrawn.

The Federal Association for Freight Transport, Logistics and Disposal (BGL) e.V. calls for the coalition's commitment to be fulfilled to avoid the double price of CO2 in tolls plus diesel, doubling toll harmonization programs to 900 million euros and more money for intact roads and bridges. parking spaces for trucks and other reliable ones. Financing programs for climate-friendly road freight transport.

The demonstration at the Brandenburg Gate begins at 11:30 am. To do this, starting this morning, trucks and tractors will circulate from five collection points towards Berlin to June 17th Street.
