La Tomatina in Amsterdam - level 1
Dutch farmers cannot deliver food to Russia. The EU does not allow it. The farmers have a big problem because of this.
A few young people want to help the farmers, and they have a great idea. They organise a special event. At this event, people throw tomatoes at each other. Around 2,000 people come to the event. Everybody must pay €15. This money helps the farmers.
The Spanish La Tomatina inspired the event.
Difficult words: deliver (move and sell), allow (let), inspired (if you are inspired by something, you like it and create something which is similar to it).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
