Hundreds of Italian farmers have been protesting outside parliament in Rome, along with their pigs, to protect domestic pork products. They say lots of imported meat comes into Italy with ‘Made in Italy’ labels already on it.

- Half of all pork products imported into Italy come from Germany, where intensive farming is practised – said a farmer.

Italian Farmers say it means a loss of work and income for them because of the unfair competition from foreign goods.
