Roadblocks set up
Farmers protesting a range of issues, including social security reforms, continued roadside protests over the weekend. They parked their tractors alongside the national highway leading to the Evzones border post and the Malgara toll post in northern Greece. Farmers in this part of the country are also expected to assemble a roadblock near Makedonia Airport in Thessaloniki today. Farmers in central and western Greece also joined the protests over the weekend, vowing that they would not be stopped by police efforts to prevent their tractors reaching the highways.
