Catalan farmers They continue to demand structural changes to improve the sector. Dozens of them started this Monday, around 9:00 a.m., a slow walk along the A-2: from Alcarràs (Segrià) to the height of Soses, a place where they have cut the road, to the AP-2trying to interrupt vehicle traffic.
A device of the Mossos d’Esquadra has managed to prevent it and the protesters have gotten off the tractors to walk on a secondary dirt road. Finally, they have been able to access the highway. After speaking with the Mossos, both parties have reached an agreement and the farmers they have been able to make intermittent cuts in the Zaragoza direction, a fact that has caused retentions.
The closure of these roads continues
A group of tractors kept the road cut off around 12:00 p.m. A-2, AP-2, C-14, N-240 and A-22 in Lleida, according to the Servei Català de Trànsit since ‘x‘. Specifically, the A-2 and AP-2 are closed in Soses; C-14, in Ciutadilla; the N-240, in Almacelles and Torregrossa and the A-22, between Lleida and Almacelles (Lleida).
Farmers plan to block La Jonquera (Girona), Mercabarna (Barcelona) and the Port of Tarragona this Tuesday to continue with the protests.
Without a “somewhat good” solution, they won’t stop
About twenty farmers and ranchers in the Vall del Corb area have cut, since nine in the morning, the C-14 as it passes through Ciutadilla, in Urgell. They plan to stay a total of 12 hours, that is, until 9:00 p.m. at night. They warn that they will continue cutting roads until the administrations respond to their demands.
“The airports go on strike, the taxi drivers stop the roads and we have reached a point where we have to do it, and until they give us a somewhat good solution we can not stop“he insisted Carles Sarrofarmer from Ciutadilla.
“Patience also runs out”
One of the spokespersons for the mobilization, Jordi Larioshas denounced that, at first, the Mossos were preventing the protest from continuing, despite the fact that he has assured that They had the corresponding permit to block both ways. Furthermore, he has warned the Government that “patience also runs out” and that in the future, when they need them, they may not find them.
