Farmers spread straw on the pavement early on January 16, 2013 in Paris, near the Agriculture ministry and the Prime Minister official residence, the Hotel Matignon, during a protest called by farmers union FNSEA against new constraints arising from the applications of European Union rules against nitrates. A new map identifies 'vulnerable areas' to nitrates which require special protection to not pollute water resources. The boards ask for the resignation of Agriculture Minister Stephane Le Foll.
