There were a lot of protests on the 17th of January over cheap Spanish wine imports. 60 winemakers blocked an entrance to Prodis early in the morning. One lone lorry was found with the contents of it dumped on the highway. The protest was against unfair competition. The imports prevent the French people from selling their products.
“Tension is rising in southern France after winemakers staged a day of action, emptying at least one tanker of Spanish wine and blocking a depot used by the wine subsidiary of Carrefour supermarket.”
