Italian farmers protest food imports

Italian farmers have staged rallies outside the parliament to protest the government’s economic policies that allow food imports, used to make classic Italian products such as pasta and mozzarella cheese.

During nationwide protest events on Wednesday and Thursday, farmers also set up a picket at a border point in the Alps, inspecting incoming trucks carrying a variety of foodstuffs such as Lithuanian meat products, German mozzarella and Austrian wheat, which they say are eventually sold as Italian goods.
