Belgium: Tractor protest hits the streets of Brussels amid trade talks

Farmers on tractors took to the streets of Brussels on Monday demanding a fair trade deal that will not jeopardize local production, as EU-Mercosur trade negotiations resume this week. Farmers blocked the streets around the European Committee building, demanding a fair deal from the Mercosur negotiations. «It [the deal] proposes to import meat and many other things from abroad under foreign... Еще rules, it doesn’t even respect European norms,» said a local farmer in protest. The European Union is currently negotiating a trade deal to open up global trade with the members of the South American bloc known as Mercosur.
