Netherlands: Farmers stage nationwide demo against govt. pollution policy

Dutch farmers joined a nationwide protest across the Netherlands on Wednesday, against the government's new pollution measures which farmers believe would affect their businesses. Footage shows farmers parking their tractors outside a Jumbo distribution centre in Breda in an attempt to block it, despite the court's ruling a day earlier forbidding any blockade of warehouses in the country. One... Еще resident expressed his support for farmers, saying that they «have to struggle to keep their businesses alive.» Footage also shows farmers staging a rally in Malieveld in centre of The Hague. The protest comes a day after Dutch senators approved a bill to reduce nitrogen emissions and ground contamination, which would see farmers change the feed they give to livestock, among other measures.
