(LifeSiteNews) — Last Friday saw a massive protest in the Belgian and European Union capital of Brussels. An estimated 2700 tractors brought the city to a standstill in an action organized to protest against the ruin of their livelihood – and ours – by Net Zero diktat. This time the reason for the destruction of farming is nitrogen pollution.  

Organized by the Boerenbond, which is “the professional organization for every agricultural entrepreneur in Flanders and East Belgium,” the protests aim to halt measures being debated by the Flemish regional government to limit nitrogen pollution.

These policies were initially discussed last summer. Yet with discussions ongoing, the farmers have taken to the streets to protest at measures they describe in stark terms:

‘It’s an economic and social catastrophe,’ said Nele Kempeneers, a spokesperson for Belgian farmers’ association Boerenbond, one of the unions that organized the protest. ‘A lot of farms will have to limit the amount of animals that they keep, or simply close down.’

It is an issue which pits Green Agenda policies against the adequate provision of food. “No future without farmers,” read one banner, neatly reminiscent of the slogans which accompanied the recent farmer protests in the Netherlands 

These government measures are simply one factor in a wider crisis in agriculture, according to Marnix von Mello, a former Belgian dairy farmer, who said: 

Every day, an average of two farmers throw in the towel. Because not nearly as many young people take up the trade, the number of farms is systematically decreasing year after year. There are plenty of reasons to stay away from the agricultural sector: strict environmental regulations, poor prices, uncertain investments. ‘Today there is no clear framework in which farmers can do business.’

UPDATE 8/17/22:

SIGN & SHARE the petition supporting farmers whose livelihoods are being attacked by extreme environmental policies and countless media outlets. 

UPDATE: The farmers' protests are spreading


Protests led by thousands of farmers have broken out across the Netherlands, and they're now spreading to Italy, Germany and Poland - this is a fightback against not just environmental regulations and the resulting inflation, but also the elites' Great Reset agenda.

While the demonstrations themselves have been overwhelmingly free from violence on the affected farmers' part, the response to them has been anything but: Earlier this week, Dutch police opened fire on a 16-year-old tractor driver during a protest in Heerenveen. 

While -- thank God -- this unfortunate incident did not result in any deaths or injuries, a formal investigation is still forthcoming, and farmers and concerned citizens now know, without question, what measures could be pursued in order to silence opposition to backers of the international Great Reset, which could spell doom for the livelihood of farmers everywhere.

That's why we're asking you to SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of farmers across world against intrusive, overreaching policies of globalist organizations and political leaders who seek to prioritize their own extreme environmental ideology over the ability for everyday farmers to earn a living and provide for their families and communities.

Of course, these kinds of extreme environmental policies are not only a threat to the livelihoods of farmers in the Netherlands, or just the nations that comprise the European Union, for that matter: These regulations most certainly can (and inevitably will) make their way to every corner of our world, including countries like YOURS.

In the Netherlands, specifically, lawmakers recently approved legislative proposals to significantly decrease greenhouse emissions by the end of the decade, most notably ammonia and nitrogen oxide, which are common in farming.

This plan, as championed by Christianne van der Wal, the Dutch Minister for Nature and Nitrogen Policy since January, seeks to exceed the globalist EU's agreement among Member States to reduce greenhouse emissions as a means to combat climate change by at least 40% by the year 2030, replacing the desired percentage with an even loftier 55%.

As a result, it would seem almost inevitable that thousands of farms could find themselves in jeopardy within the coming years, but Dutch farmers have no plans to stand down; in fact, this embrace of EU and World Economic Forum (WEF)-style environmental demands is the primary force behind the ongoing protests by as many as 40,000 farmers, who, in response, have taken their tractors to highways across the Netherlands, making an unmistakable statement of resistance reminiscent of that of the Canadian Freedom Convoy truckers in order to protect their livelihoods.

Similar protests have also broken among farmers in Italy, as you can see here:

Such policies are a clear tenet of the Great Reset, pushed by globalist entities around the world like the World Economic Forum. Look no further than the WEF's own "Net Zero Challenge," which seeks to coerce participants into cutting all greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050, and will inevitably threaten countless jobs and livelihoods in the process.

Let there be no doubt: these extreme environmental policies and transgressions against working people cannot be expected to stop any time soon.

That's why we must take this opportunity to make our voices heard -- whether you're a farmer, yourself; work in an industry that would be negatively affected by such policies; or simply support the hardworking men and women in your country and others who wish to maintain the freedom to provide for their families without excessive government and globalist interference.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of Dutch farmers, and farmers and workers across the world, whose livelihoods can and eventually will be harmed by the extreme environmental demands of globalist entities like the EU and WEF seeking to implement the Great Reset.

Thank you!

Marnix closed his farm when he received a “red notice” from the government – over his nitrogen pollution. His empty farm joins the 14 percent of Belgian farms which have closed in the last 13 years, falling from 27,253 to 23,321 nationwide.  

The Boerenbond (Farmer’s Union) is not alone in their opposition to these proposals, however:

The agri-food sector, represented by sector federations BCZ (Belgian Confederation of the Dairy Industry), BFA (Belgian Feed Association), FEBEV (Federation of Belgian Meat) and FENAVIAN (Federation of the Processing of Meat and other proteins), supports the Tractor Action of Friday 3 March.

These food producers are not demanding that the Belgian government abandons its aims to reduce nitrogen pollution. They claim they seek an agreement which allows them to comply –  “…without creating a socioeconomic carnage, either in agriculture or in the agri-food industry.” 

That is why BCZ, BFA, FEBEV and FENAVIAN, just like the agricultural organizations, ask for a concrete, realistic and feasible policy framework that offers a future for our local food production and gives legal certainty to our farmers. Because we desperately need our farmers.

The trouble with this reasonable request is that the pace of these Green Agenda reforms appears designed to aggravate the decline in food production, both in Belgium and elsewhere. September 2022 saw a protest in the Czech capital of Prague, over the impact of the European Union’s Green New Deal. According to Martin Pýcha, chairman of the Agricultural Union, the measures will result in food scarcity. 

If we accept the new policy of agricultural support distribution as planned by the current government and try at all costs to implement the ambitious goals of the Green Deal for Europe in such a short time until 2030, European food will become an expensive luxury that will definitely not be for everyone.

In the Netherlands, another protest is planned for the 17th of march to maintain the immense momentum gained by the Farmer Citizen Movement. Dutch farmers, outraged at the proposed and forced closure of up to a third of farms nationwide, are seeking to protect their overwhelmingly owner-operated farming sector which, until now, has seen the Netherlands become the second largest exporter of food worldwide. 

Their Farmer Citizen Movement (BBB) political party is polling strongly ahead of the Dutch Provincial elections of March 15. This party based not only on farming but on the citizenship of “neighborly values.” A human scale community is once more fighting back against a technocratic class determined to reduce them – and us  – from self reliance to a miserable dependence. 

Their impact is already being felt in Dutch politics, with technocrat and World Economic Forum favorite Mark Rutte’s proposed nitrogen bill now losing support. Their example shows how a coordinated fightback, based on strong community bonds, can fight and overcome a posthuman and mass scale agenda seeking to impose a social order for which no one has voted. 

These protests are succeeding. As one article warned last year, they are likely to be seen in the United States, and in every country which pursues the destabilizing and destructive Net Zero agenda. Show your support for the Belgian and Dutch farmers. They are not just fighting for their livelihoods, but for a future with a human face. They have shown us how to stand up to the machine, and to win.
