Catalan farmers drove more than 500 tractors through central Barcelona to protest government cuts in the agricultural sector. Farmers from across Catalonia drove to Maria Christina Avenue and staged a rally protesting the government’s decision to reduce aid to agricultural communities in disadvantaged areas in the high mountains. According to the Farmer’s Union, the agricultural sector witnessed a drop in profits of 39% between 2001 and 2015.
