Farmers: 10 tractors at the demonstration at the Circus Maximus.  A few hundred people were waiting for them amidst curiosity and applause: “There are so many of us”

The 10 tractors that left from the Cecchina garrison for the CRA Agricoltori Traditi demonstration have arrived at the Circus Maximus. The vehicles with the tricolors crossed Rome amidst the greetings of some citizens and arrived on the esplanade under the Aventine hill sounding horns and trumpets. “We are all farmers”, is the stadium chant that accompanied the entrance to the Circus Maximus, where hundreds of demonstrators gathered.

This is why the tractor protest continues

“There are thousands of us,” said one of the farmers present, but we will have to wait for the exact numbers. When the demonstration was called by Danilo Calcabi of the CRA, there was talk of 20 thousand demonstrators, a goal later reduced to 5 thousand also due to the failure of Riscatto agricultural to join. Attendance also appears much lower than this second figure. The demonstrators sang the Mameli anthem and a banner appeared among the crowd with the words “stop money for the war against Russia”. The ‘subtitle’ reads ‘aid to farmers’. «No to unions, we want to be autonomous!», is another of the banners displayed. And again: «I am a son of agriculture, but what will my future be?».

«When we entered Rome with our tractors, the citizens welcomed us with applause and signs of encouragement. It’s something I didn’t imagine, it was beautiful.” Danilo Calvani, leader of the ‘Cra farmers betrayed’ who arrived in Circo Massimo for the demonstration, said this. “There are a lot of us in the square,” added Calvani.
