The farmers of northern Greece from the prefectures of Kozani, Kastoria, and Grevena have joined the European-wide farmers protest. Tractor convoys were seen on Jan. 26 protesting the implementation of the new Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the European Union. In Kozani, farmers held a meeting with the local mayor and regional government, blocking access to the latter’s office for the duration of the meeting.

The farmers announced that next week they will block the Egnatia motorway at the Siatista junction, the major east-west motorway in northern Greece linking the Greek-Turkish border with the Adriatic.
