Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

My (first, we shall see for the following) mrriage was interrupted, in 1992, but tractors blocking the freeways.

Farmers equally blocked the freeways a couple of months ago to protest low market prices for pork and for daily products, but the Hollande government succeeded in keeping them at least a little less discontent via some govenrment funded investment support, as well as some tax abatements/

Back in 1992, it wasn't just the farmers. If I recall correctly, air traffic controllers and/or pilots were also on strike, as was the SNCF, cutting off rail. In any even, if you wanted to make your way to my wedding from any place other than Italy (I was in Toulon at the time) you had to take the side roads.

Fun times.
