In addition to producers, members of other economic activities participated.

Producers from Chaco and members of other activities grouped in “Self-convened Citizens” held an assembly on the route in Las Breñas this Saturday to analyze the lack of diesel, among other problems, and plan joint measures. This is the first assembly in the sector to be held in the midst of the fuel crisis.

In the meeting it was decided to make a mobilization on the 25th of the current one that will unite Charata, Las Breñas, Avia Terai, with an act in the latter place, to end in Sáenz Peña. It was also agreed to make a request for the national deputies and senators of the province to express the various problems.

According to the latest map of the Argentine Federation of Freight Transport Business Entities (Fadeeac), among the 18 provinces and CABA with diesel problems, Chaco appears in orange, which represents that the average supply is 20 liters per unit.

Producers from Chaco told this medium that common diesel is around 190 pesos per liter and the highest quality costs above that value. “There is little and nothing, here the lack of diesel is important”, they summarized.

The agenda of the call was broader and extended to other issues such as security, education, the tax burden in general.

Faced with the problem of diesel, in recent days Grupo Independencia, a group where, among other members, self-organized producers converge who made the April 23 tractor-trail in Plaza de Mayo, proposed a national strike. And he requested that the Liaison Table and other business chambers echo that proposal.

Gabriel de Raedemaeker, Vice President of the Argentine Rural Confederations (CRA), told this medium that at the meeting of the organization’s Board of Directors that will be held this week, he will propose as a member of Cartez – a confederation of CRAs – some measure that “makes visible” the “pressing” situation for diesel.

In addition to producers, members of other economic activities participated.

“We are going to take the proposal to make it visible with a mobilization of producers and trying to add the carriers; the alternative may be a one-week trading cessation.” he pointed.

In a statement entitled “the productive matrix in danger”, Coninagro Córdoba, Sociedad Rural Argentina (SRA), Cartez and the Argentine Agrarian Federation (FAA) called for an “urgent” increase in the participation of biofuels, such as biodiesel, in diesel. .

“The Córdoba Regional Agricultural Entities Liaison Commission, faced with the pressing reality of the lack of fuel to carry out urgent rural tasks for food production, among many other essential activities for the normal development of the daily life of the inhabitants of a country no longer enduring new restrictions but struggling to find a path to truly inclusive growth and development, urges the entire political arc of our province to demand and propose to the national authorities an urgent increase in the percentage of cutting fossil fuels with biofuels, incomprehensibly limited to 5%, as an alternative solution to this unprecedented crisis”, Indian.

“The national government seems busy with an agenda of priorities that is increasingly distant and divorced from the problems that the Argentine people must suffer on a daily basis,” he added.

Until last year there was a 10% mixture of biodiesel in diesel, but with the new law promoted by Kirchnerism it dropped to 5%. After complaints from the private sector about the shortages, in recent days versions have circulated of an increase in the cut to 15%, allowing the free participation of companies to cover the surplus. Today 5% is covered only by SMEs while exporters cannot participate in this mandatory cut.
