Thousands of Farmers in the Netherlands Protested in Tractors

In the Netherlands, thousands of farmers took part in the protest. The Hague city center was blocked by military equipment, police vehicles and equestrian police, writes “Agro-Center”.

Initially, the farmers planned a protest under the walls of the Binnenhof complex, which houses the Dutch Parliament and is the Prime Minister’s residence. However, local authorities have forbidden the entry of tractors into the territory of the historic building.

“You can protest but please follow the rules. Otherwise, you’re breaking the law,”

said the Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

Dutch farmers protested against allegations of air pollution with carbon dioxide and nitrogen by farms. They also got tired of animal rights activist bothering them all the time.
