Farmers staged a series of demonstrations in several cities on Wednesday to protest the sale of Polish agricultural land to international corporations.

“The tenders for the sale of land are out of control,” said Wojciech Włodarczyk, Chairman of Solidarity's Malopolska Regional Council for Individual Farmers. “This is particularly the case with the border areas in western Poland,” he added.

Protesters picketed the Ministry of Agriculture in Warsaw, saying that officials were unwilling to address their grievances.

“We have been ready to talk right from the beginning, so that we could solve our problems around a table,” said Edward Kosmal, chairman of the Cross-Union Committee of Protesting Farmers in the western Pomerania Region.
