Netherlands, Ruinous climate policy: Dutch farmers threatened in their existence plan to paralyze the country today

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Farmers in the Netherlands have blocked the German/Dutch border with thousands of tractors to protest the government’s controversial nitrogen policy. Even larger nationwide protests are planned for July 4.

Dutch farmers demonstrated outside several public buildings with manure and slurry after politicians voted on proposals to reduce emissions of so-called harmful pollutants. The plan could force farmers to reduce their livestock or stop working altogether.

Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s government says emissions of nitrogen oxides and ammonia produced by livestock must be drastically reduced near natural areas. These areas are part of a network of protected habitats for endangered plants and animals that stretches across the EU.

So basically, we see another step of the EU, as they have been slowly but steadily set since its foundation: Small and medium-sized businesses are being made unprofitable and driven to ruin or at least closure by more and more regulations. Nationalization similarly took place in the early years of the former communist East Germany, back when it was part of the Sowjet empire.

Thousands of Dutch farmers protested their government’s climate policy, promoted by the World Economic Forum (WEF), whose minions also sit in the Dutch government.

Photos show thousands of trucks blocking the German-Dutch border. Journalist Keean Bexte posted a video on Twitter and wrote: “Farmers, learning from Canadian freedom demonstrators, is currently blocking the border between the Netherlands and Germany with tractors to protest their government’s WEF climate policy.”

Dutch farmers continue their demonstrations against the government’s climate policies, depriving many farmers of their livelihoods. Organizers on Telegram are planning protests for July 4 that they say will “flatten” the entire Netherlands.

In their message, the organizers call on concerned farmers and citizens to organize their regional actions to shut down all “food distribution centers and all major polluters” until “the government changes its plans.”

It remains to be seen whether the government will bow to pressure from farmers, truckers, and so on or continue with their destructive agenda, putting the Netherlands’ food security at risk.
