France: Farmers launch blockade of oil refinery in Grandpuits

Farmers launched a four-day blockade at the Grandpuits oil refinery on Sunday, to protest against the import of palm oil for use in fuel at the expense of locally-produced biofuels. Tractors and trucks blocked the entrance to the refinery and dumped farm waste in front of the facility. Farmers view palm oil as «unfair competition» to more expensive oils produced by local producers like... Еще rapeseed and sunflower. The four-day blockade will target thirteen French refineries from June 10-13.
