Protesting farmers to submit proposals to government
A delegation of Greek farmers, protesting over planned changes to social security, were expected to submit their proposals to the leftist-led government at 1.30 p.m. on Monday.
“We will not have a meeting with the prime minister. We will submit our requests and we shall leave,” unionist Dimitris Dimogiannis said. “We give a 48-hour deadline to the government to answer on our demands and we shall then decide on future action,” he said.
The government of has promised to reform the costly pension system as part of a multi-billion euro bailout deal with its foreign creditors, but premier Alexis Tsipras has said he is ready to look at helping specific groups hurt by the changes.
