Dutch Protest: No Farmers, No Food

Armstrong Economics Blog/Agriculture Re-Posted Jul 7, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

The Dutch farmers are pushing back against a new law that plans to reduce nitrogen oxide and ammonia emissions by 50% by 2030. These gases are produced by livestock, and some estimate that 30% of livestock farms will close under the new plan. “The honest message … is that not all farmers can continue their business,” Prime Minister Mark Rutte coldly said.

We have an ongoing food supply shortage globally, and this is something that will affect everyone. These farmers are protesting for all of us. Other industries that are known to produce emissions have more relaxed rules under the new restrictions such as aviation, transportation, and construction. Why unfairly target farmers? It is a deliberate attempt to exacerbate the food supply shortage to push forward the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) agenda for the Great Reset. Again, the WEF is transparent about its plans but no one wants to see what is staring them in the face.

The farmers are not afraid to fight back. Last week, around 40,000 people gathered to protest the absurd ruling. Protestors have blocked food distribution centers and used tractors to block access to supermarket distribution centers. They are simply providing the government of a preview of life with a drastically reduced food supply.

There are currently 54,000 agricultural businesses in the Netherlands. Agriculture exports from the nation reached $99 million USD in 2019. This law benefits absolutely no one and simply caters to the globalist agenda. People cannot protest or fight back when they are hungry. I have warned countless times that people should begin stockpiling food now while there is still time. Although this is not an apocalyptic scenario, prices will spike and availability will diminish.
