The second day of the protest from the farmers of the European Milk Board (EMB) at the European Parliament in Brussels. The EMB, which is co-ordinating the protest, says small farmers are being forced out of business.

The farmers of the European Milk Board (EMB) held on 27 November in Brussels for the second day a great protest demonstration for the European Parliament.
They call on all Dutch, German, French, Italian and Polish farmers to make the common requirement, flexible market regulation in order to achieve cost-covering milk.
Just like yesterday there is a large protest march with the tractors and farmers at Place du Luxembourg and through the streets in Brussels, Belgium, Tuesday 27 November 2012.
