Hundreds of farmers expected to join Monday’s protest in Prague

Hundreds of dissatisfied Czech farmers are planning to join Monday’s protest in Prague against rising costs, heavy regulation, cheap goods from Ukraine and the Green Deal. According to the organizer of the protest, Zdeněk Jandejsek, chairman of the agricultural holding Rabbit, close to a thousand tractors are expected to enter the capital from six routes as early as 5 am on Monday morning.

The Prague City Council has warned drivers about serious traffic complications. Some agricultural organizations and the Czech Chamber of Agriculture have distanced themselves from the protest saying they do not intend to take ordinary citizens hostage.
