The livestock baldomero lopez denounces that in the town of Sil weaving, where he has a farm, he is denied access to pasture without any motivation. This prevents you from accessing the help of the CAP and jeopardize your business. Given his requests in the council, the neighborhood meeting that decides on the issues of the town's assets, ends up settling with an insult of "fagot” on several occasions, according to the newspaper the bierzo.

Already at that time the pasture conflict existed, since they were denied access to them despite being the the only farm in town. For the allocation of pastures it is necessary that the Neighborhood Board authorize it and then it is the Castilla and leon meeting the one that, before the different requests, specifies the allowed use of pastures and the cost of the same, how good they become income for the town.
The farmer has a hundred cows dedicated to meat and denounces that without pasture their way of life is in danger: "they had me cheated with the fact that I did not have the right to cattle pasture, I was losing two years and it turns out that I had the right”.

The rancher also does not hide that his status as former president of the Tejedo del Sil Neighborhood Council for the PSOE – before the current representative, for the PP – can influence the situation, but the expression of “fagot"As an insult, it always ends up coming out:"At first I thought it was a political issue but no, they are very concerned with fagots”. López was even criminally denounced for alleged irregularities in neighborhood management in a case that was filed.
contacted by the newspaper the bierzo who made the case public, the president of the Tejedo del Sil Neighborhood Council, David Verano, has declined to offer an assessment of the matter, merely pointing out that things are mixed up and that he is studying legal measures due to the controversy created.
