Protesting Against Yourself

Today, the Swedish Minister of Agriculture Eskil Erlandsson will take part in the quasi-monthly meeting with his colleagues in all the other EU states. But in the middle of it all (in about an hour), he will go out in the street outside and join a gang of demonstrators trying to get the attention of the same meeting.

I’m not quite sure I understand this. Yes, he is a quiet man, but doesn’t he believe that he will be able to get the other Agriculture Ministers’ attention inside the building where the meeting is held?

So I’ll be there to ask a few questions. His responses will be in tomorrow’s Foodwire.
