Protesting farmers dumped manure, hay and blocked traffic with their tractors during protests in the Toulouse and Nancy.
The strikes are a response to what the protesting farmers say are increasing constraints and charges imposed by the European Union and French government on the nation’s agricultural community, in particular the reforms to the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).
