Dutch Farmers Revolt Against Insane Government Demands

The government demanded a mass-slaughter of livestock in order to crack down on all the horrible CO2 that cows and other farm animals were producing. Correction: The government is primarily cracking down on... nitrogen. In fertilizer. And which makes up like 80% of the atmosphere.

The government is also demanding they "farm differently," much like the Sri Lanka government demanded before they collapsed the economy and created widespread hunger and starvation.

The farmers are saying: "NO."

Farmers all across the Netherlands have banded together in recent weeks to protest newly proposed emission cuts that would devastate the livestock industry, with farmers shutting down major city centers, distribution centers, airports, and more across the small European country.

On Tuesday evening, police fired upon farmers in their tractors.

Police said that they were responding to a "threatening situation" in which farmers were attempting to drive their tractors into officers and service vehicles at just before 11 pm.


Protests across the Netherlands have been ramping up since late June, when lawmakers voted in favor of a proposal that would slash emissions like nitrogen oxide and ammonia.

According to ABC News, the ruling coalition of the Netherlands wants to cut down on pollution emissions, primarily nitrogen oxide and ammonia, by 50 percent across the country by 2030.

Ministers warn that farmers will have to adapt to new regulations or face shutdowns.

"The honest message ... is that not all farmers can continue their business," and those who do continue will likely have to farm differently, the government said in a statement this month, according to ABC News.

Dutch farmers are being treated appallingly by their political masters, being forced to kill their livestock and close their farms in order to 'slash emissions' (incl. ammonia in urine and faeces). Honestly, this is the sort of thing of which revolutions are made.

I don't know if this is true, but it has the ring of truth:

Ace didn't mention it, but the Dutch minister who's behind the law in question has a brother who recently got $600 million from Bill Gates. Every elite is the fricking Biden family now. Posted by: Ian S.

Dutch Farmers are now blocking the airport. Before they have blocked the highways, ports, supermarkets and distribution centers as a protests against the govt.

Pretty amazing that almost no one is covering this in the United States.
