Dutch Farmers and Fishermen Blockade Inspires Wave of Protests Against ‘Liberal World Order’
by Kyle Becker, Becker News:
There is a wave of protests spreading around the world. The Dutch are the latest to express their discontent against the crumbling ‘liberal world order.’
Dutch farmers have revolted against a government proposal to slash emissions of pollutants like nitrogen oxide and ammonia in half by 2030. The Netherlands’ government gave the plan to provincial states to formulate by the end of the year. The farmers became incensed with the government’s plans that may require them to use less fertilizer and reduce livestock.
