10-12-2009

Czech farmers blocked two milk processing plants in eastern Bohemia and central Moravia on Thursday in protest against low milk prices they are being paid. The protest lasted for about two hours. Farmers demand that milk prices are levelled up to those in neighbouring countries, that is to 30 eurocents per litre. The head of the Czech Agrarian Chamber, Jan Veleba said that the situation was unsustainable in the long run.
