Dutch farmers have launched another protest, jamming up the streets, after learning Rutte is forcing up to 3000 farms to shut down for good.
Farmers are driving their tractors into the cities and parking them on roads in protest of the announcement. The government has its own equipment to counteract the tractors, including excavators to flip over and remove tractors from the roads.
One man stood in front of the government-operated excavator with his arms wide open to stop it from moving. However, police quickly grabbed the man and threw him in an unmarked vehicle.
Another man tried the same thing, and the excavator slowly inched towards him, poking him until he submitted and stepped aside.
To comply with the European Union’s radical climate laws, the Dutch government of World Economic Forum acolyte Mark Rutte will forcefully shut down these farms for good.
Farmers have no say in the matter. They will be made an offer on their farms, which the government claims is “well over” market value.
According to nitrogen minister Christianne van der Wal, the government purchase will be compulsory.
“There is no better offer coming,” claimed van der Wal.
