Around 300 milk producers demonstrated in front of the Council of the EU building in Luxembourg to protest against the proposition to change the milk quotas policy and to ask for milk "fair prices". Demonstrators came from different European countries and mostly from Germany, France, the Netherlands, Austria, Belgium and Luxembourg. They blocked the access to the European institutions area with about 180 tractors.
The European Milk Board organised this demonstration to coincide with the Agriculture Council where European Ministers were discussing the so called "health check" of the Common Agricultural Policy.
