Protesting Greek Farmers Raise the Stakes

Greek FarmesAs the Greek government appears determined to go forward with its proposed plan for the reform of the nation’s ailing pension system and to increase taxes, more farmers are joining protests and taking part in blockades, thereby raising the stakes.
Now it is farmers in Attica that have joined the mobilizations against the Syriza government as hundreds of their tractors blocked this afternoon major roads in the region.
Greek farmers throughout the country continued their protests today and are now laying out their strategy for next week.
In the meantime, farmers have been joined by lawyers, doctors, engineers and other professionals, all in a common front against the government’s pension reform plan and new tax increases for 2016.
