Event description

The Lithuanian Milk Producers Association on March 30th staged a protest in the center of Vilnius in an attempt to draw attention to problems plaguing the dairy sector. The demonstration, which drew several hundreds of protesters, started near the house of parliament on Wednesday morning. Farmers brought a cow’s skeleton in a car trailer to the site of the picket and some of the protesters disguised as cows. The Lithuanian parliament last week passed legislative amendments providing for regulation of milk prices. This, however, drew a negative response from many milk processing companies and some dairy farmers. Dairy farmers should be paid 18 million euros in compensation from the budget early in April. In February, Lithuania asked the European Commission to provide additional 75 million euros in support for the country’s dairy sector.

Rally members

01:47-02:43 (LT) We went to the protest, and the cow remained untill. Damages is difficult to calculate. In misery we consider every penny. We have no money to go to here, only going on foot. Fleas and those dying of hunger. We were in Brussels! We were given EUR 12.5 million and that as much again you should your state. So if Brussels did not go their to nothing ever waited!
