Plans to rein in emissions of nitrogen oxide and ammonia by massive amounts have Dutch farmers fuming because their implementation threatens to shut down upwards of 30 percent of the country's cattle ranches.
The Dutch government's mandated emissions reductions of up to 70 percent in many areas close to protected nature areas, and up to 95 percent in other places, is an "unavoidable transition," politicians said.
Because The Netherlands keeps missing its emissions targets, which are mandated by the European Union of which it is a member state, the government says it has no choice but to implement these new measures. If it does nothing, reports indicate, then permits for infrastructure and housing projects will be rejected.
In the small agricultural village of Stroe, located about 45 miles east of the capital city of Amsterdam, farmers were seen gathering in front of a stage that was set up with speakers to address the crowd. A festival of sorts, there was also a children's bounce house and plenty of music blaring in between speeches.
Many of the farmers' tractors could also be heard delivering horn beeps while they drove onto a field where a large banner was seen with the words: "What The Hague chooses is deeply sad for the farmer," referring to the city where The Netherlands' parliament is located.
A banner on one of the tractors also read: "We can no longer be stopped."
Because of the sheer number of tractors on the road traveling to the capital, the national infrastructure authority urged motorists to stay off the roads, we are told.
At The Hague, several dozen farmers and their supporters gathered for breakfast before heading to a protest. They were seen wearing t-shirts saying things like "No farmers, no food."
"This is where the rules are made," said dairy farmer Jaap Zegwaard, who brought his tractor to the edge of the city. "I was asked to come here and provide breakfast so we can show we are food producers, not pollution producers."
In order to achieve the government's mandates, many farmers such as Zegwaard face having to kill off a large portion, if not all, of their livestock. The ruling coalition in The Netherlands earmarked some 24.3 billion euros ($25.6 billion) to finance these and other changes.
Put a different way, billions of taxpayer dollars in The Netherlands will now go towards killing off cattle, which will destroy the agricultural economy of that country while starving it to death.
Provincial governments throughout the country have one year to formulate plans to meet these new reduction targets. By next summer, in other words, it will be a full-on "Hunger Games" type of situation in The Netherlands (and likely the rest of the world).
It turns out that farming is a key sector in the Dutch economy. Tulips, cannabis, cheese, and so much more is produced there, and the country has been prosperous because of it.
"Farming is a key sector in the Dutch economy, with exports worth nearly 105 billion euros ($110bn) last year," Al Jazeera explains.
The new emissions changes, however, threaten to turn The Netherlands into a third-world country with no economy. Once the new rules are implemented, there is really no telling how bad things will get for the Dutch. (Related: Learn more about how to prepare for a global food collapse.)
In addition to the protests, some farmers – there are said to be as many as 40,000 of them roving the country, similar to the trucker convoy in Canada – are reportedly spreading manure around government buildings, leaving bales of hay in the streets, and blockading roads and supermarket distribution networks.
The goal is to get people to wake up to the fact that the so-called "green" agenda is a global depopulation agenda. With each new emissions target comes the destruction of humanity, in this case by targeting the food supply.
"In their infinite wisdom, the govt of the #Netherlands wants to impose new climate goals of reducing #Nitrogen output by 2030, which will force #Farmers out of business," tweeted one account, suggesting that this is all linked to Agenda 2030, which is tied to the Great Reset and the New World Order.
"Holland has even appointed a new Minister for Nature & Nitrogen! The minister, Christianne van der Wal #Protest."
A verified Twitter account called "Wall Street Silver" added to the conversation that it wishes Americans were as interested in these tactics as the Dutch are, seeing as how the United States faces a similar plight at the hands of the greenies.
"Dutch farmers close the border between Holland and Germany with tons of manure to protest nitrogen cuts," the account added.
Many other accounts tweeted messages of support for the farmers, who are doing God's work by taking a stand against the corrupt and tyrannical "green" agenda.
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte is upset about the protests, especially the manure part.
"You can demonstrate, but in a civilized way," he fumed in a statement.
"So don't block highways, don't set off fireworks outside a minister's house and spread manure and ... scare two children, and endanger families."
