Farmers Protesting in Road Blockades to Stop on Friday; Changing Tactics

Protesting farmers from the Nikea and other blockades will end their road closures and continue their protests in different ways, the president of the United Federation of Agricultural Associations in Karditsa, Vangelis Boutas, told the Athens-Macedonian News Agency on Thursday.

“We change the form of our labor action and tomorrow we leave the Nikea blockade. We will participate in the labor action of the unions and PAME, and we invite all farmers to the events marking the Kileler uprising on March 19,” he said.

On Wednesday, farmers at the Melouna blockage also decided to end their protests on Friday.
