There were a dozen or so farmers in front of the Chancellery of the President on Wednesday afternoon. As they claimed, they received an invitation to the Presidential Palace on Wednesday during a conversation with Andrzej Duda in the Sejm. When asked by PAP, the KPRP did not confirm that such a meeting would take place.

Farmers' protest in the Sejm

On May 9, a group of 11 farmers started a protest in the Sejm, demanding a conversation with the Prime Minister Donald Tusk on the EU Green Deal. They entered the Sejm on leave submitted by the Confederation and PIS. They started a hunger strike a week ago.

On Saturday, two protesters had to break their hunger strike. As Mariusz Borowiak from the Orka Agricultural Association told PAP on Monday, the farmers who were hospitalized were rehydrated and given medicine.
