The demonstrators also called for compensation for farmers in eastern Poland whose pigs have been slaughtered amid attempts to contain African swine fever, according to PAP.
The protest started at Defilad Square in central Warsaw and made its way to the Prime Minister’s Office.
The farmers handed out Polish products such as cabbage and tomatoes to passers-by.
