Quake-zone Farmers to Take Cattle to Rome Protest

06 March 2017

ITALY - Agriculture association Coldiretti said Friday that farmers from the areas of central Italy hit by the recent series of earthquakes will take their livestock with them to a demonstration this week calling for more support from the government.

According to ANSA, the 7 March protest outside the Lower House is being staged to highlight the "unsustainable" situation many farmers say them find themselves in.

"The last bastion of an area injured by the earthquake is at risk," said Coldiretti.

"A quality agricultural, livestock economy can only be saved if the reconstruction goes hand in hand with getting back to work."
