Spain: Farmers and ranchers of Jaen protest fuel price hike

Dozens of farmers and ranchers of Jaen protested fuel price hike on Friday.

Rally participants were seen driving their vehicles down the streets to the place of gathering with their klaxons blaring.

One of the attendees, Chari Anguita Higueras, stated farmers are now paying '300% more' for fertilisers, phytosanitary products and fuel.

"Before we were doing badly, quite badly, and now with the rise in prices, it is even worse. We need lower fuel prices, which can be reduced without any problem. The government should not charge so many taxes on fuels," another protester, Celso Jimenez, said.
