“Dutch farmers turned out in their thousands to speak out against the World Economic Forum (WEF) climate change policies of their government.”
The Netherlands has been hit by massive protests as thousands of Dutch farmers demonstrate against government’s globalist climate change policies that threaten to stifle country’s agriculture sector.
The farmers’ protests are in response to parliament’s decision, taken on June 28, to drastically reduce emissions, particularly those in the agriculture and livestock sectors. They are “protesting against a proposal, approved by lawmakers Tuesday, to reduce emissions of pollutants like nitrogen oxide and ammonia by 50% by 2030,” the Associated Press reported this week.
The new emission regulations could devastate Dutch farm-owners. The French TV channel EuroNews noted that Parliament’s “decision is expected to lead to major upheavals in the country’s multi-billion euro agricultural industry.”
The UK’s Daily Express, on Saturday, reported the raging farmers’ protests:
Protestors demonstrated in front of several public buildings with manure and slurry after politicians voted on proposals to slash emissions of damaging pollutants, a plan which could force farmers to cut their livestock herds or stop working altogether.
Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s Government says the emissions of nitrogen oxide and ammonia, which livestock produce, must be drastically cut back close to nature areas, which are part of a network of protected habitats for endangered plants and wildlife stretching across the EU.

If farmers fail to comply with the new emission regulations, the government apparently plans to put them out of business. Dutch ministers “warn that farmers will have to adapt or face the prospect of shuttering their businesses,” the newspaper Irish Independent reported last week.
Farming is big part of Dutch economic and social life. The tiny European country, smaller than West Virginia, is the world’s second largest agricultural exporter, after the United States.
“The small, densely populated country of 17.5 million has a large animal population — nearly four million cattle, 12 million pigs and 100 million chickens,” the EuroNews added.
The farming regulations in the Netherlands are part of a bigger European Union agenda, as Brussels enforces one of its toughest ‘climate’ measures despite rising inflation and fuel prices across Europe.
“EU countries have struck a deal to pursue tougher climate policies despite fears among some member states that a rush to shore up energy supplies after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine would weaken Europe’s environmental ambitions,” the British Financial Times reported Wednesday.DONATE
