Yesterday in Ciney, Belgium, the farmers have spread out almost 6 million liters of milk on a large field with 450 tractors,
in protest for the low milk prices. People could also just come for free milk if they wanted to.

Here's a nice video: http://www.deredactie.be/cm/vrtnieuws/mediatheek/redactietips/redactietips_2eNiveau/1.598836

That's a lot of milk... I don't think many people over here would have the guts to do that...

How many millions of pounds of milk was chucked away?

Also I would have thought this will just make the government want to import milk? Or doesn't it? It would ours...
