ČT24 | Week of protests of European farmers

Farmers across all Europe call for changes in legislation. What are their demands? How fast are the negotiations going and how can farmers be relieved of some of the current bureaucracy? Viktor Daněk explains in an interview for ČT24.

"The tension, rather than in the negotiation room, it will be outside. I'm pretty sure that if it wasn't for the scale and length of the protests across Europe, the European Commission and individual member states would not be so willing to deal with the problems farmers face. Or maybe they would have been, but certainly not at the speed and intensity that we are now seeing on specific proposals."
