The farmers' movement is spreading throughout France and blockades are taking place on numerous roads while awaiting "concrete announcements" from the government. Find out where the main sticking points are.

Anger is brewing and the movement is growing. After initial mobilizations around Toulouse, farmers' blockades are being organized throughout France. And while the movement continues to spread, the president of the FNSEA Arnaud Rousseau assured on the set of France 2, Wednesday January 24, that "by Friday, 85 departments will take action. [...] All the departments of the north, south, east, west, everyone will come out at some point.”

Blocking of roads, roundabouts, free toll operation... The farmers' demonstrations are diverse, but for the most part consist of blocking major roads and these mobilizations have spread to several regions. Occitanie, the starting point of the movement, remains the most affected region with several blockades at different points on the A61, A62, A63 and A64 motorways, not to mention blockages on national roads, the Albi ring road or even in the city ​​center of Agen. The mobilization is organized higher up in Gironde to block access to the A10 and A89 motorways, further east towards Lyon with blockades on the A6 and A47 or between Isère and Drôme with the important dam installed on the A7.

Even farmers from the northern half of the country joined the movement: several blockades were organized from Brittany to Alsace, via Hauts-de-France. Some departmental federations of agricultural unions are even considering moving forward in Île-de-France and Paris, notably the FDSEA of Oise which is carrying out an operation in Beauvais. "We will arrive at the toll gates, and the next step will be Paris. If we don't have concrete answers, we will be in Paris in a few days" Régis Desrumaux, farmer and member of the FDSEA of Oise.
