Farmers scale up action

Farmers rode their tractors through the streets of Larissa in central Greece Friday as they continued to press the leftist government for a reduction of production costs and a minimum guaranteed price for certain agricultural products. Protesters scaled up their action by shutting down traffic on the Thessaloniki-Serres highway. Meanwhile, a tractor protest taking up a lane on a stretch of the Athens-Thessaloniki highway continued for a fifth day Friday. Farmers from across the country will meet Sunday to decide on future action. [Intime News]
