Karditsa: Farmers’ tractors have reached the junction of E65 – Video and photos

At the moment there are discussions between agricultural trade unionists and the Police

At 12:30 p.m., the effort to gather agricultural machinery from various parts of the rural areas of the municipality of Karditsa at the junction of the E65 is in progress.

At the moment, no appreciable number of tractors have appeared at its intersection, while there are strong police forces that have blocked the entrances and exits so that agricultural vehicles cannot enter the highway.

However, the bulk of agricultural machinery coming to the E65 junction from the Palamas area was temporarily stopped (as it turned out) by police officers on the road section between Mataraga and Delta Karditsa (E65 junction) and after brief consultations between the police and the heads of the mobilization the course of the tractors proceeded and reached the junction of the E65.

At the moment there are discussions between agricultural trade unionists and the Police in order to allow the farmers to go through the police block on the E65 to protest the problems that put them on the street and to claim the replacement of lost income in cotton to the aforementioned 1 euro per kilo, tax free oil, generous subsidy on agricultural inputs, ceiling on rural electricity at 0.07 cents/kwh, immediate subsidy on animal feed and livestock farmers whose agricultural income is greater than livestock, lower guaranteed prices based on production costs and a subsistence income, 100% compensations from ELGA and for all causes, as well as the fixed request for infrastructure and irrigation projects.

At first this was not allowed to them and at about 12.45 they started marching on E.O. Karditsa-Larissa and organize their next step.
