Hundreds of farmers and ranchers demonstrated in front of the Ministry of Agriculture in Madrid on Wednesday to demand improved price regulation from the government.
The demonstrators blocked the road in front of the ministry where they chanted slogans such as «The farm is not for sale, it is defended» and carried signs that read «No farm, no life.»
The mobilisation arrives at the Spanish... Еще capital after a week of protests in several regions. The demonstrators are demanding what they describe as fairer prices for producers and a rebalanacing of the agrifood chain, in a fight against high production costs.
«We come from all over the countryside so that there are fair prices. Almost all of us are here, they are paying us less than the cost of production,» said Ivan, a beekeeper.
