Farmers gear up for action with protests at squares

Farmers from Evros in northern Greece all the way to Crete in the southern Aegean will be parking their tractors and trucks in central squares on Tuesday as they gear up for extended action to press demands to the government.

Farmers met in Larissa, central Greece, over the weekend and decided to begin industrial action on Tuesday to demand the abolition of a regulation forcing them to keep books recording their revenues and spending.

They are also asking for an increase in their tax-free threshold and for measures to help them settle overdue debts.

Greece’s farmers are expected to increase their action by closing off national highways as they have done in the past if their demands are not met.
