  • Description

    FRENCH FARMER'S UNREST... TO MEET ANY INCIDENTS, 2500 POLICE TURNERS THE LAW COURTS AT MONTPELLIER INTO A FORTRESS FOR YESTERDAY'S (MONDAY'S) HEARING OF FOUR FARMERS CHARGED WITH BLOCKING THE PUBLIC HIGHWAY IN DECEMBER'S TURBULENT DEMONSTRATIONS.

    A LARGE CROWD OF FARMERS PRESSED THE POLICE CORDON AS THE DEFENDANTS WENT IN TO FACE THE POSSIBILITY OF PRISON SENTENCES. THEY PRESSED FORWARD AGAIN AS THE FOUR CAME OUT SHORTLY AFTERWARDS... WITH THE NEWS THAT THE COURT'S DECISION WOULD BE MADE KNOWN IN A WEEK'S TIME.

    FOR FRANCE'S FARMERS, THE TROUBLE IS OVER LOW PRICES AND LACK OF OUTLET FOR THEIR PRODUCE. THE NEXT MOVE IN THEIR LONG BATTLE AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT'S FARM POLICY IS SET FOR JANUARY 24, CALLED ACTION DAY WITH PROTEST MEETINGS AND DEMONSTRATIONS THROUGHOUT FRANCE.
