French farmers protest stagnant revenues, unfair competition

French farmers angered by government policies that they say threaten their livelihoods drove convoys of tractors into Paris on Wednesday.

Farmers’ unions are demanding a meeting with President Macron to express grievances over policies that they say are hurting agriculture.
