Dutch farmers protesting their government’s authoritarian policies told The Counter Signal they were inspired by Canadian truckers — and many flew Canadian flags as a sign of solidarity.

On Saturday, more than 10,000 Dutch farmers and freedom protesters showed up to The Hague to protest their government’s globalist climate policies.

“The Dutch farmers drew a lot of inspiration from the way [Canadians freedom protesters] showed Trudeau who was boss,” Dutch commentator Eva Vlaardingerbroek told The Counter Signal.

“What happened in Canada is happening all across the world,” another protester said.

Many of the Dutch and Canadian flags were flown upside down. 

In recent weeks, hundreds of farmers in the Belgian capital of Brussels have also been protesting similar nitrogen cuts announced by their government that they say will put them out of business.

In Holland, the most recent sign of aggression from the Ruute government came in November when it announced it would force at least 3000 farmers to sell their land to comply with the EU’s emission reduction targets. 

Last year, the Dutch agricultural minister resigned after just nine months on the job after being tasked with transitioning the sector away from farming practices and buying out farmers to reduce emissions.

In November, the Dutch anti-terrorism branch labelled people who protest globalist policies pushed by the World Economic Forum as extremists and conspiracy theorists.

Similarly in Canada, before the freedom convoy protest arrived in Ottawa, text messages between staffers at the Prime Minister’s Office and Public Safety indicated that Trudeau had already decided to frame the protesters as extremists.
