Moldovan farmers have demanded that the country’s government resign while trying to enter the parliament in the capital Chisinau on Wednesday, (Dec.16).
The farmers gathered in front of the country’s parliament with their tractors to protest the government’s new bill demanding an increase in the value-added tax (VAT) rate in the agricultural sector from 8% to 12%.
The farmers demanding support from the government due to the summer drought in the country showed a strong reaction against the government’s bill.
Police used tear gas to disperse the protesters.
After the protest, the country’s interior ministry in a statement said four police officers were injured and an investigation has been launched about the incident.
