Through a statement, the Rural Federation states that 135 articles of the LUC are being plebiscited, and not article by article, for which they emphasize that “there is no option to choose the articles to repeal. It is to repeal or not to repeal the 135 articles”.
They also state that the articles put under consideration directly linked to the agricultural sector are those that refer to the National Colonization Institute and MEVIR. “What this Law incorporates are changes, benefits and flexibility for producers who maintain links with these institutions.”
“Articles are added that are not specifically about the agricultural sector, but that affect us as citizens directly in our way of life and work. Articles that refer to public safety, presumption of innocence, self-defense, insult to the Police, registration of persons, articles on financial freedom, freedom of work and right to direct companies, referring to education, number portability and leasing without guarantees”, detailed in the statement.
“No” to repeal
They ensure that the LUC and these articles that are put under consideration, incorporate changes and aspects that have been raised from the productive sector itself. “This is why we understand it is necessary for the LUC to be maintained, and all the articles that are intended to be repealed are maintained.”
The FRU expresses its support for the Law of Urgent Consideration and suggests that the population support the 135 articles that are put up for consideration in the referendum. At the same time, it urges the federated unions and producers from all over the country to accompany this support for the Law of Urgent Consideration and put the “No” before the repeal of the articles to be considered in the next referendum.
