Livestock Producers’ Union demonstrates at Ercan

Some 100 tractors and work vehicles were parked at the Ercan Airport roundabout in the union’s second day of demonstrations.

Mustafa Naimoğulları, head of the Cyprus Turkish Livestock Producers’ Union, said union members will have a meeting according to the outcome of the demonstration, and make a decision on their next course of action.

He also told TAK news agency that police had obstructed further vehicles from entering the area by blocking traffic to the roads.

“The police even cut access to the exits of the villages, main roads, junctions and even dirt roads,” said Mr Naimoğulları.
“They said necessary ‘documents are missing’ but, excluding a few vehicles, this is not correct information. The police are trying to suppress the producers to stop the demonstration from getting bigger.”

On Wednesday, union members wanted to demonstrate outside the Agriculture and Natural Resources Ministry building in the capital but demonstrated at the Ercan roundabout after police had blocked access to roads as a security measure.

Vehicle entrance and exits at Ercan Aiport were delayed due to the road blockage and travellers had to walk to the terminal.
