British farmers have formed a massive convoy and taken to the streets, storming the gates of Westminster, London, and protesting before parliament.

BREAKING: British farmers stage massive protest in front of parliament

And the people have come out in droves to support everyday people fighting for livelihoods, with honking and chants of “No farmers, no food!” being heard across the Westminster.

According to those protesting, their primary concerns stem from abysmal UK and EU regulations and climate policies that will hamstring production in Europe while cheap, low-quality imports flood the market and lower standards. And despite government subsidies, those with the most to lose are clearly the farmers currently feeding the people.

“I’m a third-generation farmer. I’m here for my future,” one farmer from West Sussex told the BBC. “There are multiple nails being put into this coffin built around us.”

Another farmer said he has “no choice”: he has to protest. He added that “this could be our last harvest” if he doesn’t.

“We have been, as most farmers have been, living in our overdraft now for the last five years. We can’t see it getting any better—yields have plateaued, prices are dismal, our costs for raw materials are horrendous, and the regulations that we have every day are mindboggling,” he told reporters.

The British farmers’ protest currently ongoing is only one of many exploding across Europe, representing a part of a much larger movement.

Last week, 70,000 Polish farmers took to the streets, setting up several blockades and shutting down the borders with Ukraine and Germany in protest of the EU’s climate regulations.

B“Throughout the country today, more than 580 protests are planned, with nearly 70,000 people estimated to take part,” a police statement read. Despite the massive turnout and outpouring of support from the people, the governments of Europe have been slow to respond or even acknowledge the plight of their blue-collar workers.
