Across Serbia, farmers are blocking roads with tractors, dissatisfied with the purchase price of agricultural products and denied benefits by the state. Livestock farmers from Starčevo, Bavanište, Kisač, Bogatić, and all the way to Požarevac, Novi Sad, Subotica, Rača and other cities took to the streets for a peaceful drive. Everything happened after failed negotiations in the Government of Serbia with Prime Minister Ana Brnabić, and after the refusal of an invitation to a meeting with President Aleksandar Vučić. Namely, although the farmers did not completely block the flow of traffic on the first day of the protest, they announced that if their demands were not met by Thursday, they would begin a mass blockade of Belgrade. As Dejan Trajković, a farmer from the vicinity of Kovino, told Danas, the plan is to radicalize the protest in the coming days. “On the first day, we decided to stand by the roads with tractors, and for the following days we are still agreeing on coordination. If the Government is not interested in farmers by the end of the day, and there is no reaction, radicalization of the protest will follow. Now we have started and there is no stopping”, says Trajković. He points out that now everything is in the hands of the Government, because they have not solved anything so far, and the farmers have no intention of withdrawing without concrete fulfillment of their demands. According to the announcements of the organizers of the protest, farmers along the Kragujevac, Rača, Smederevska Palanka and Batočina municipalities will travel to Belgrade with tractors and machinery. As noted by Goran Filipović, one of the farmers participating in the protests in Novi Sad, the requests submitted to the Ministry of Agriculture have been “on the table” for ten days, and nothing has been resolved in that field. “The negotiations with the Government failed twice, we did not agree on anything. The most important requirement does not exist – all eight are the most important. It is not known which is more urgent than which. In my opinion, the most urgent is diesel, which we have been waiting for who knows how many years,” says Filipović. Miroslav Matković, president of the Association of Agricultural Producers of Subotica, adds that the protestors intend to stay on the roads without interruption until Thursday. “If the president or the prime minister does not sign our demands, we are ready to go to Belgrade with tractors on Friday, together with other associations from all over Serbia,” warns Matković. During the first day, no incidents were recorded, and in some places local police officers were present, while, according to farmer Milan Miloševiċ from Viševac, BIA officials put pressure on the organizers to give up the protest.
