Farmers block the border with Germany.  The police appeal to drivers

Farmers continue their protests. They blocked, among other things, the border crossings with Germany in Świecko and Gubinek. The protest started on Sunday and is scheduled to last until Wednesday.

Farmers were not satisfied with the concessions announced by the European Union last week. Protests continue both in Poland and in other European countries. On Sunday, around 1 p.m., Polish farmers started blocking the border crossing with Germany in Świecko on the A2 highway, and around 8 p.m., the blockade also began in Gubinek. The protest at both border crossings is scheduled to last until Wednesday (March 20) until 10 p.m.

The Lubusz police issued a message about difficulties and planned detours. “Drivers driving along the A2 motorway towards the border crossing in Świecko and approaching the Jordanowo, Rzepin and Świecko junctions are asked to be careful and follow the new signs and signals,” the officers appealed. “The Świecko junction will be the place where the motorway will be closed,” they warned. The police also assured that the officers “will not leave drivers alone with these difficulties” and “will help them move on Lubusz roads throughout the protests.”

Farmers want to paralyze all of Poland

The last large protest in Warsaw ended in clashes with the police. Several officers were injured, over 50 people were detained, and some of them were charged. The next action was announced for Wednesday, March 20. At the beginning of the general strike planned for 30 days, agricultural Solidarity wants to block access roads to the largest cities.

In turn, the Young Farmers Movement announced that 271 protests have been reported so far across the country. Poznań residents can expect huge difficulties, because protests are to take place in 40 places around the city in the capital of Greater Poland. Protesting farmers also want to paralyze traffic on the roads entering Warsaw from the north and east, as well as the junction at the intersection of the S2 route and provincial road 801 on the right bank of the Vistula. There are also plans to block the S7 and S8 expressways and access roads to Lublin and Bydgoszcz.
