Spanish farmers head towards French border to protest ahead of EU elections

Spanish farmers from the Basque country were headed towards the French border on Monday where they planned to block roads in protest ahead of the European election.

They were expected to reach Irun and hold a joint protest with French farmers, blocking each side of the French-Spanish border, while a similar action was due to happen in Catalonia.

Earlier this year, farmers across Europe protested against EU regulations and what they say is unfair competition from abroad.

The 27-nation EU has already weakened some parts of its flagship Green Deal environmental policies, removing a goal to cut farming emissions from its 2040 climate roadmap.
