Waterford farmers show of solidarity with European counterparts
Over 20 farmers gathered with their tractors in Co. Waterford last night (Tuesday, January 30) in “a show of solidarity” with ongoing protests by farmers across Europe.
Demonstrations have taken place in France, Germany, Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands and elsewhere in recent weeks.
It comes as farmers vent their frustrations over European Union environmental policies, rising costs and cheap food imports.
Roads, airports and ports have been blocked as bales of hay, manure and tyres were set on fire in some areas.
