As Spain's tractor protests continue cutting motorway access across the country, here's what you need to know about the potential disruptions on Tuesday.


The ongoing industrial action by Spanish farmers and agricultural workers has entered its second week and shows no sign of slowing down, with farmers taking their tractors onto the streets and cutting off major motorways throughout Spain. They plan to maintain their street protests across the country for at least the rest of February, according to the updated schedules of different agricultural groups and organisations.

In recent days some demonstrations have turned violent, with arrests and clashes with police leading the 6-F group, the organisation behind many of the protests, to call for the resignation of Spain's Interior Minister and threaten legal action.

Hauliers had called an indefinite strike alongside the agricultural protests, something that threatened to compound the travel and supply chain chaos, but called off their action on Monday, just days after starting it.

Why are Spanish farmers protesting?

As the EU's biggest fruit and vegetable exporter, Spain has long enjoyed the moniker of Europe's 'vegetable garden' but in reality the farmers that produce these goods are facing significant difficulties and are concerned for the future of the agricultural sector.

Like farmers in France but also Germany and Belgium, Spanish farmers are taking their tractors onto the streets to demand fair prices for their products, raise issue with the green agenda and unfair competition (an EU-wide problem and something French farmers accuse Spanish farmers of), asking for common agricultural policy rules to be softened and food chain law to respected, as well as calling for tax benefits on agricultural diesel to be extended.
