Farmers Are Causing CHAOS Throughout The Netherlands.. Here’s Why
Welcome back to Down On The Farm, today on the channel we are going to talk about Enraged farmers causing chaos throughout the Netherlands. What’s going on? Dutch police fired a gun at a 16-year-old boy in a tractor at the end of a day filled with farmers protesting against new government plans to cut nitrogen emissions. Not long after the incident took place in the province of Friesland, police stopped the young protester and arrested him for attempted manslaughter, claiming he tried to drive his tractor into police cars. A day after the arrest, footage of the incident went viral. Videos of the police officer shooting at the tractor’s cab, nearly missing the boy, have generated hundreds of thousands of views, showing no sign of the tractor attempting to target police cars. Outside of the police station, dozens of farmers, including forty tractors, demanded the detained boy’s release. The next day he was released and, on Thursday, it was announced that no further prosecution would be pursued.
Already the Frisian blond farmer’s son has become the face of a movement. So how did it get to this? Why are farmers protesting in every possible way accompanied by a huge fleet of tractors, causing chaos throughout the country? In many parts of the Netherlands nitrogen emissions need to be reduced by 70 per cent, according to plans announced by the Dutch government at the start of June. The 70 per cent would concern 131 areas near vulnerable natural areas, in an attempt to let those protected environments recover. Behind that requirement is the fact that nitrogen emissions can cause acid rain and fertiliser washed into waterways can be a threat to marine life and an excess of nitrogen compounds — such as ammonia — affects the biodiversity in nature reserves.
