French farmers to block oil refineries in protest of palm oil imports

In France, much in the same way Brazilian truckers brought its economy to a halt by blocking ports in protest of high oil prices, Reuters reports that French farmers have called for a protest to block oil refineries as of June 10 to show their displeasure that Total will import 75% of the feedstock required for its La Mede biorefinery. France’s largest farm union FNSEA said that the protest is targeting unfair competition posed by palm oil imports.
