The 12km protest drive is being organised by the Għaqda Bdiewa Attivi and is directed at EU policies which farmers say are threatening their livelihoods. 

Following similar protests happening all across Europe, the farmers are demanding a lowering in taxes as well as stronger import controls due to the use of pesticides from outside the EU.
