not only is this protest big, and spreading thru europe and canada, but, and i know this will certainly surprise you, 'our free press' is totally ignoring it as they've been doing with other popular protests, like the yellow vest gang was;
The farmers’ protests in the Netherlands continue. Thousands of Dutch farmers have been taking to the streets for weeks. They block roads and paralyze access roads and distribution centers. In short: they are fighting for their survival – against expropriation. The reason for the protests is the Dutch government’s plans to massively reduce nitrogen emissions by up to 95 percent. That would mean the end for about 30 percent of the farmers.
These are peasant protests of unprecedented proportions. Last year, Christianne van der Wal, Minister for Nature and Nitrogen, was commissioned to reduce nitrogen emissions by 50 percent by the end of 2030. With her plans, she wants to ensure the end of many Dutch farmers. The plans stipulate that farmers will give up their farms voluntarily and receive compensation for doing so – on the condition that they guarantee never to go back to farming. If they disagree, the state will take over their farm. So the great expropriation has begun.
Nitrogen reduction by 2030
The government in the Netherlands seems to have set itself the task of ruining the farmers. With their nitrogen plans for reducing nitrogen emissions presented on June 10th, around 30 percent of farmers have to close their businesses. By the magical year of 2030, Dutch national nitrogen emissions are to be reduced by 50 percent, in many places up to 70 percent, and in nature reserves up to 95 percent...........more........
