Holland is the world’s second largest exporter of agricultural products. Over the weekend, Politico says Dutch farmers and citizens took to the streets in Hague to express their disgust for what the Dutch government is trying to do to shut farmers down.
Not surprisingly, the Associated Press reports climate cultists with Extinction Rebellion were also in the city trying to block traffic. No word on why they were there. No doubt it was to support the government’s plan to shut down the farmers trying to block farmers from entering the city while attacking police.
Dutch elections are coming up on March 15th, and a pro-farmer political party (BBB) is polling well enough to where their victories could tip the balance of power in the Netherland’s parliament.
