French farmers shower Government with manure, lay siege to Paris

French farmers

In a developing story, angry farmers have caused havoc in France by blocking highways with straw bales and tractors, and even showering government offices with manure.

Farmers in both France and Germany are protesting low agricultural prices and high supermarket profits. The farmers say their protests aren’t a moment too soon.

Grievances have long been brewing in the European Union’s leading agricultural power. Protesters say it’s becoming harder than ever to make a decent living from their fields, greenhouses and herds.

For the worst off, it’s impossible. While farmers throughout Europe have been protesting poor wages and bureaucratic policy within their own countries and the EU, it is no different this side of the world.
