German farmers are going all out and staging protests across their country and along the Netherlands-Germany border to support Dutch farmers.
A large convoy has been spotted passing through Heede on its way to the Netherlands-Germany border, while another group of tractors has been demonstrating along highway overpasses.
As previously reported by The Counter Signal, German farmers began showing solidarity with Dutch farmers almost as soon as the protests started, having worked with their Western cousins in setting up border blockades.
Two farmers, one German and one Dutch, were also spotted exchanging their nations’ flags, a clear sign of friendship and comradery.
German farmers were also reportedly involved in the blockading of a Dutch immigration centre in Ter Apel. This protest was staged to send a message to the government that farmers won’t allow themselves to be priced out of owning their land, only for that land to be paved over by the government to house more immigrants.
As leader of the Forum for Democracy Thierry Baudet explains, “They want to make us more dependent on international supply chains. They want to weaken Dutch sovereignty and autonomy. And also, they want to continue mass immigration into the Netherlands.”
“And if you’re going to bring more people into the Netherlands — into a very small and dense country — you’re going to need to take the land from the farmers and put houses there. That’s the agenda. To turn the Netherlands into a giant city.”
As previously reported by The Counter Signal, Dutch farmers are currently protesting a climate policy that will put a 50% cap on nitrogen and ammonia emissions by 2030. Farmers are the primary targets due to the supposed impact of fertilizer use and livestock. It’s estimated that at least 30% of farmers will be forced out of business and will have to sell their land due to the policy.
The Dutch government knows this and has positioned itself to purchase the land, which has raised more than a few eyebrows.
