Demonstrations against agricultural policy in Germany
Massive demonstrations took place in conjunction with International Green Week, an annual food and agriculture fair in Berlin. Tens of thousands of people took to the streets in Berlin to urge for a radically changed agricultural policy that promotes organic farming, animal welfare and strengthened environmental protection. The day before, a conflicting demonstration took place when 500 farmers entered Berlin in tractors to protest against the policy guidelines aimed at protecting the climate and animal welfare, which they perceive as too strict and constraining their working conditions. Similar protests have been arranged by farmers in Germany over recent months.
