Around 150 olive growers yesterday used tractors and other vehicles to block the Athens-Patras national road near Aigion in the northern Peloponnese. Riot police were at the scene but no violence was reported. The farmers want to be subsidized for all the oil they say they have produced and not just for 60 percent of it. Similar protests have been held over recent weeks in other parts of Greece.
