Farmers close Greece-FYROM border crossing until at least February 3

Protesting farmers and cattle farmers decided on Wednesday to close the Evzoni border crossing between Greece and FYROM until at least February 3, following a meeting of the coordinating committee of Central Macedonia.

However they said they will not participate in Thursday’s rally organized by other farmers at the center of Thessaloniki and they will meet anew to decide how to proceed with their labour action.

Earlier today, they allowed 57 trucks to cross the borders and asked police to divert traffic to side roads and towards the customs office of Doirani.
