Thessaly farmers gear up for protests in January
Farmers from Thessaly, central Greece, met in Larissa on Saturday and decided that they would launch protests in January, while warning MPs not to vote for planned increases in taxation for those working in the agricultural sector.
“Greek MPs, why do you have to condemn us to poverty with your vote?” the farmers said in a statement.
“Why must we be prevented from cultivating the land? Why should we not be able to live? Why should we lose our fields, our homes and our machinery? We reject these policies. We condemn them and vow to fight them.”
