The Greek farmers toughen their stance, since they are realizing that the government is betting on their tiredness and the reactions of Greek society regarding the problems created due to the blockades at national highways.

Moreover, the cynical confession of Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Panagiotis Sgouridis, who has submitted his resignation, concerning the false promises made by Alexis Tsipras to farmers inflamed the situation, especially in a moment when some farmers are willing to discuss with the Greek government, unlike their colleagues who insist on the withdrawal of the social security and tax reform before starting a debate.

Greek farmers escalate their protest actions by blocking main highways and Greece’s borders with Bulgaria and Turkey and public building, such as tax authorities and courts.
