Brussels - Dairy farmers from all over the EU descended on Brussels Monday to protest low milk prices and the planned liberalisation of the sector in 2015. The movement - dubbed "1,000 tractors to Brussels" - saw hundreds of machines block the EU quarter. The protest comes ahead of a meeting of EU agriculture ministers later this week.
