The agricultural sector announced it would stage the protest in Malaga.
The main representative organisations from the agricultural sector of Malaga, Asaja, COAG, UPA and the Agro-alimentary Cooperatives, together with the unions UGT and CCOO, have held a new meeting in which they have decided to protest against the new regulatory framework of the Agrarian Common Policy (CAP).
The Malaga agricultural sector will take to the streets on April 9, in a protest in front of the Central Government Sub-delegation in Malaga, on the Paseo de Sancha.
Those responsible for the main agricultural entities in Malaga province said their thanks for the meeting held with the representative of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food of the Ministry of Agriculture, Miguel Angel Riesgo, earlier this month at the Sub-delegation of the central Government in Malaga. However, they said they had not been able to make progress on their disagreements over the law.
The news comes after last month 5,000 cyclists joined a protest in Malaga organised by the association Ruedas Redondas, to call for a better and safer, system of segregated bicycle lanes in the city.
The protest came after Malaga council brought in a new by-law on February 1 that stopped cyclists and scooter riders from using the pavements of Malaga, and a system of fines came into operation.
Organiser Jose Luis Marin, said he wanted Malaga to protection for those on bikes, as well as providing bicycle parking racks, and segregated bike lanes.
