Several blockades have been violently taken down following the declaration of emergency ordinance orders in response to the Dutch Uprising.

According to the Netherlands Post, roughly 200 hundred fines were handed out on Monday, and at least seven have been arrested.

Late last night, the Dutch police’s Mobile Unit used tear gas to disperse protesters in Heerenveen and break up a blockade at a food distribution centre.

According to Paudal, most if not all blockades have been dispersed as of Tuesday evening (GMT) after several municipalities announced emergency ordinance orders which gave the police unprecedented powers to intervene — not unlike the Emergencies Act, which Canadian PM Justin Trudeau utilized in response to the Freedom Convoy.

They explain that protesters were given an ultimatum: leave or face police action — though it was ultimately left up to police as to whether they intervened.

These emergency orders were declared in Haaksbergen, Drachten, Gieten, Hengelo, Heerenveen and Nijkerk, amongst others.

Reporting live from the Netherlands, TCS Editor-in-Chief Keean Bexte says, “[The Netherlands’ government has passed a policy that has been suggested and pushed by Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum. It’s a policy that will see nitrogen pollution cut in half by 2030. Now, along with cutting nitrogen pollution comes cutting farms, cutting farm production, and cutting farm[ing] jobs,” 

He then points to a red handkerchief hanging off the side-view mirror of a construction truck, saying that it has become “a symbol of the protest here in the Netherlands — they’re flying off the shelves at every store, and every protester’s carrying one.”

“… Every farmer in this country is united against this government,” Bexte explains, “and they’re blockading the distribution centres of grocery stores to let the public know exactly where their food comes from and what will happen if Mark Rutte, Klaus Schwab, and the rest of the globalists get their way.”

Bexte continues, gesturing to haybales behind him, explaining that farmers have lit haybales on fire and left them on the road in protest.

It is not clear whether such tactics will also be employed tonight.
