A farmer Sprinkles The Oscar-Winning Actress

According to the Daily Mail, Emma and Sophie Thompson were filming a parody of ‘The Great British Bake Off’ for Greenpeace on a farmer’s land when the furious farmer drove over to the protestors on his tractor. The protestors reportedly snuck onto the land and climbed over a gate to set up on the land, which was to be used for fracking.

The actresses were filming a parody episode, titled “Frack Free Bake Off,” in order to “show the government that we will not allow fracking to scar our countryside and fuel yet more climate change.”

When the farmer spotted the group of protestors on his land, he drove over with his tractor in an attempt to drive the group away. As he then drove around the protesters, he began spraying them with manure from the back of the tractor.

In a video of the incident, the protestors can be seen screaming at the farmer to stop, but he ignores their calls and continues circling around them.

After a few times driving around the group, the farmer drove off.

Because importing food from abroad requires the state to provide hard currency.
The farmer plays a great role as he cultivates the land and works to reduce the unemployment rate in the country.
Where agriculture requires labor, especially in the harvest season.
Cultivating agricultural lands and providing green spaces in the country works on the citizens’ feeling of psychological comfort.
Green spaces reduce the percentage of air pollution in general.
Where greenery provides oxygen in the atmosphere, and softens the temperature.
Reducing the rate of migration from the countryside to the city.

A Farmer Sprinkles Other Protesters With Fertilizer

Kate Styles, a local cake shop owner involved in the protest, told the Telegraph, “The stink was temporary – unlike the impact of fracking on this community if Cuadrilla get their way.”

“Celebrities from London trespassing on a Lancashire farmers land, preventing him from working whilst lecturing us on where the UK should get our natural gas is beyond ridiculous,” Francis Egan, chief executive of Cuadrilla, said.

According to the Telegraph, Cuadrilla’s application to frack on the farmland was initially thrown out by local councillors, but they appealed and the decision to accept the application will be reviewed by the government.

A spokesman for the local police discussed the incident in a statement.

“We were this morning made aware of a protest on land at Plupton Hall Farm at Little Plumpton,” the police spokesman said. “A local neighborhood patrol attended and spoke to a representative of the protestors to establish their intentions. It was not felt necessary or proportionate to maintain a police presence at the site but resources are available to attend again if necessary.”

Emma Thompson discussed her involvement with Greenpeace and the reason she chose to join the protest against fracking.

“I’ve been aware of this issue for a while with my work with Greenpeace and it came to a head for me when David Cameron went to the Paris Climate Conference and signed on to the protocol and then on the sly at Christmas, when nobody was looking, gave the nod to 200 fracking sites in Britain,” Thompson said. “It proved to me our Government is saying one thing and doing the opposite.”

What Is The Reason For Celebrating Farmer’s Day?

in the India. The National Farmers Day in India is also known as Kisan Divas in Hindi. Farmer’s Day is celebrated every year on 23 December, on the birthday of the 5th Prime Minister of India, Choudhary Charan Singh, also a farmer’s leader, who introduced many policies to improve the lives of the Indian farmers.

Types of farming:

1- Modern Agriculture:

It is agriculture in which modern means are used.
    Such as traction machines and harvesting machines, as well as the farmer depends on manufactured fertilizers and manufactured fodder.
    Chemicals in spraying agricultural lands.

2- Traditional farming:

It is the farming that used traditional means such as the ax and sickle, and relied on traditional natural fertilizers.
The farmer relies heavily on animals to help him cultivate the land.
Likewise, the farmer was waiting for the rains in order to carry out agriculture, in contrast to natural farming, where there are modern methods of irrigation that are being used.

Cultivation stages:

The first stage of cultivation is to choose the type of soil suitable for the type of crop or crop that will be grown in the land, where each type of soil has a suitable type of crop.
The land is purified from weeds and weeds in the ground.
Then the appropriate organic fertilizer is added to the ground.
It is left for about a week, to ensure that the soil has absorbed all the fertilizer and permeated it into the ground.
Seedlings and seeds are selected for the land suitable for them.
Determine the distance between each seedling and another, so that there is no crowding between the bushes when they grow up.
Irrigation of the crop by the method available in the land, according to the type of irrigation available in the land.
Monitoring the growth of plants and getting rid of pests that may affect plants.
Then the agricultural crop is sprayed with appropriate pesticides for the type of crop so that the farmer avoids any insects attacking the crop.
The harvest season is the last stage in the cultivation of crops, after which the farmer harvests his own crops, and this requires the hands of a large worker.

Role of the state in caring for the farmer and agriculture:

The state has a great burden to support the farmer in the course he offers to the citizens and the country, as the farmer has a great economic role that the farmer plays. Therefore, the state and governments must take care of the farmer and agriculture, through the following:

The state provides support to the farmer through agricultural associations.
Providing seeds and pesticides in an economical and cheap way is within the reach of the simple farmer.
Providing safe agricultural fertilizers, and the state through the Ministry of Agriculture, which monitors fertilizers and their validity.
The state provides valid pesticides and analyzes them.
And to ensure that they comply with the specifications, and the state fights carcinogenic pesticides that come from abroad.

And the farmer has a pension or an amount to rely on when he reaches old age, like any syndicate.
Thus, this syndicate is interested in selling agricultural crops to the farmer at the highest price or exporting them abroad.
And financing the farmer with money, especially since the farming seasons need large periods of time.
Throughout these periods, the farmer remains without any balance of money that enters him to help him live.
Reconciling a law to protect the farmer, especially since there are problems that occur during harvesting and selling the crop, and there is a discrepancy in prices.
That is why the government and the People’s Assembly must pay attention to drafting a law to protect the farmer.
And advocating for the rights of farmers , given that the farmer is an important member of the society.
This is how we must preserve his rights, given that he is a productive person within society.
And an economic person of the first degree, as it saves the state from bearing the costs of importing crops from abroad in exorbitant amounts.
