Farmers hold rolling slow protest in Carmarthen and Aberystwyth

Farmers took to the roads and towns of Aberystwyth and Carmarthen today, Thursday (Feb 22).

The farmers were protesting at planned changes to farming subsidies and claim that a large number of farming jobs would be lost.

In Carmarthen a large number of farmers also held a go slow protest travelling through the streets. They attached placards to the front of their vehicles including ‘no farmers, no food no future.

Almost 100 farmers held a go-slow protest in Newtown on Monday. Tractors and farm vehicles were driven at a snail’s pace and arrived at an event where Vaughan Gething and Jeremy Miles were due to speak.

Farming unions have also warned that the Welsh Government plans are unviable and unworkable.
