Czech Tractors Rolling to Border with Germany and Austria

Several hundred Czech farmers will join their European counterparts in protesting against high energy costs, cheap goods from Ukraine, stifling bureaucracy, and the European Union’s Green Deal at a number of border crossings on Thursday. In the South Bohemia region, about three hundred tractors and other agricultural machines will set off for the border in the early morning hours, slowing down traffic.

It is reported that farmers from Croatia, Romania, and Bulgaria have joined the protest.
