Nearly 100 makeshift roadblocks impeded movement across Greece’s borders with Turkey and Bulgaria. Bulgarian truck drivers staged counter-blockades in mid-February.
Late on Saturday, farmers dismantled a 37-day roadblock at the Tempi junction linking the country’s northeastern and southeastern coasts, according to the ANA-MPA news service. Farmers in the southern peninsula of Peloponnese also removed roadblocks late on Saturday.
Two roadblocks along the Greek-Bulgarian border were said to have been removed as well.
Greek farmers have been blocking transport routes across Greece since mid-January in protest over looming tax and pension system reforms demanded by Greece's international lenders.
