Global Analysis from the European Perspective. Preparing for the world of tomorrow

Hundreds of farmers rally in Madrid to demand fairer prices

Hundreds of farmers and ranchers rallied outside the doors of the Agriculture Ministry in Madrid on Wednesday to protest against the challenges facing Spain’s farming sector. A combination of low prices, the threat of fewer subsidies from the European Union’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), and the announced minimum-wage hike, among other issues, has led to a crisis in the sector, with many farmers struggling to stay afloat.
