The incident occurred at roughly 11:30 to 11:40 p.m. (GMT). Police are now claiming that the farmer attempted to ram into officers and vehicles. However, videos from the scene are telling a different story.

“At about 10:40 p.m., tractor drivers attempted to drive into officers and service vehicles. This happened at the entrance Mercurius/A32 in Heerenveen . A threatening situation arose. Warning shots were fired and targeted shots were fired,” Politie Fryslân tweeted following the incident. [translated from Dutch]

“A tractor was hit. A tractor drove away from the incident and was stopped shortly afterwards on Jousterweg. Three suspects have been arrested. No one was injured. The road is currently closed for the investigation.”

As per a video from TCS Editor-in-Chief Keean Bexte, who is currently reporting from the Netherlands, the farmer attempted to drive away from police when the shots were fired.

In a separate video, two officers can be seen aiming their firearms and following the tractor as it passes by before firing two shots.

A photo (if confirmed) shows bullet holes in the tractor’s frame, suggesting that police are using live rounds.

As previously reported by Bexte, Dutch farmers attempted to take rural routes to an undisclosed location late in the evening to set up a new blockade after police managed to shut down those that were started yesterday.

The police’s actions come after several municipalities declared emergency ordinance orders, bestowing upon police unprecedented powers to deal with protesters blockading food distribution centres.

Since the orders were declared, police have been seen wearing military-style equipment and have taken to tear gassing protesters.

Despite the risk to their lives, Dutch farmers are still protesting the government’s career-destroying nitrogen pollution policy that will put a cap on emissions, especially in the farming industry.

“[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,” Bexte said earlier today.

“… 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.”
