Fury at Creed claims of death threats against management at C & D Foods

The Minister for Agriculture has met with farmers at the picket line on Kildare Street.

Part of the city has been blocked off since yesterday after dozens of tractors were parked around St Stephens Green.

Farmers are furious with Minister Michael Creed after he stated in the Dail yesterday that death threats were made against management at C&D foods in Longford during the beef crisis protests.

Farmers say no such threats were made against the factory, which has yet to lift injunctions against two farmers that resulted from the beef crisis blockades.

Minister Creed told farmers he was trying to get the taskforce up and running.
