Amid today’s protests, the German government said that it is not considering further changes to plans to phase out agricultural subsidies.

“There are no considerations within the government to change anything,” a government spokesperson said, Reuters reported.

The spokesperson added:

In the end, a government has to decide and has to lead the way, and that can’t always be to everyone’s satisfaction.
