Protesting Greek farmers to meet with officials to discuss further action

A committee of farmers which is responsible for organizing roadblocks such as those that interrupted traffic flow on parts of the national highway over the weekend, is expected to meet with government and opposition officials in order to decide further action.

The committee, which represents farmers protesting changes to their taxation status, has organized 38 tractor convoys across Greece and has said that farmers will proceed with road blockades unless their demands are met.
