Farmers in Spain will block major roads in Valencia, Málaga, Seville, Castellón and numerous other cities around the country for their fourth day of protests. This is what to expect on Friday February 9th on Spanish roads.


The fourth day of farming protests has kicked off in Spain, with some of the country’s major agricultural associations joining the movement again on Friday.

After a day in which protesters converged on Barcelona, they were out again on Thursday with several columns of slow-moving tractors snarling traffic on roads in the eastern Valencia region, Asturias in the north and the central region of Castilla-La Mancha, and several other regions.

Some protests have led to scuffles with Spanish police when they attempted to remove the roadblocks.


According to Spain’s interior ministry, 19 people have been arrested since the start of the protests. 


In Ciudad Real, local media said hundreds of protesters dumped 25,000 litres of French wine into the street in front of the local water authority in protest at the central government's policies on water.

Angry farmers have been protesting across Europe over rising costs, high fuel prices, bureaucracy and the environmental requirements in the EU's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and its forthcoming "Green Deal".

In response to the protest, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has promised to simplify the rules for implementing the CAP, as well as changing the laws so farmers don't have to sell their products at a loss.
