Milk Strike in Charleroi, Belgium


Dairy farmers across Europe held back milk yesterday in a growing industrial dispute over low prices which could limit supplies next week.

Farmers from Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg joined French counterparts, who announced plans to strike on Thursday, the European Milk Board (EMB) said.

A group of Belgian farmers flooded a main square in the southern city of Charleroi with milk yesterday morning as part of the protest that has also included blocking roads and preventing trucks from picking up milk.
