    [03] Promachonas closed by farmers

    ANA-MPA/Protesting farmers heading into the 16th day consecutive day of mobilisations on Saturday continued to block the Promahonas border post from truck traffic.

    The Egnatia motorway at the Kedryllia interchange is also closed but the old Serres-Kavala road is open. Traffic will not be blocked on Saturday on the Serres-Thessaloniki highway at Strymonikos.

    However, Grevena-area farmers decided not to close the Egnatia link with the Grevena-Kozani old road over the weekend in order to facilitate hotel proprietors and tourism businesses.

    Meanwhile, a second meeting among farmers from 16 roadblocks from the regions of Macedonia and Thessaly was held on Saturday near the Promahonas checkpoint.

    Protesting farmers from central Greece decided to escalate mobilisations in the next days and to remain at roadblocks at Alamana, Kastro, Elatia and Livanates.
