Hundreds of tractors roll into Helsinki: Farmers protest against food policy, sanctions on Russia

More than 3,000 farmers in Finland on Friday descended on Helsinki to protest against the government's agriculture and food policy. 

The farmers, along with 600 tractors, came from across the country and parked on Senate Square in the heart of the capital to call on the government to support the country's agricultural sector, which has been suffering as a result of falling food prices and European Union sanctions on Russia, a key export market for the sector.
