Macron Booed, Heckled by French Farmers at Major Agricultural Fair

The French President has taken the heat at the annual Paris International Agricultural Show, as farmers and activists angry with the government’s trade and agricultural policies came to the event to blow off steam.

Emmanuel Macron was met with heckles and boos during his first appearance as President at an agricultural show and trade fair that French politicians occasionally use to reach out to the public to promote their political agenda.

As activists from the vegan and animal group "269 Life France" staged a demonstration against the President during the fair, farmers spoke loudly against producer prices, trade talks with Mercosur (A South American trade bloc that includes Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay) and the purchase of French land by China.
