Alle ogen zijn gericht op Nederland

oog aardbolWat is er gaande? 



Farmers have been protesting across the Netherlands over the past week due to the Dutch government's climate policy aimed at reducing nitrogen emissions.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte is at the forefront of these policies, ideas he has touted for the past decade as the most important issue facing the world.

The Netherlands is a major contributor on the international agricultural market, and the proposal to reduce livestock has caused division between the country's farmers and government.

To achieve its goal of reducing nitrogen emissions, the government intends to arrange and formulate these plans by, you guessed it, 2030. Is it any surprise that Mark Rutte, the prime minister, is an “agenda contributor” to the World Economic Forum?

Klaus Schwab, the chairman of the World Economic Forum is closely connected to the Dutch government and Rutte, especially given the Forum's new Food Innovation Hub initiative. These widespread changes to our systems are commonly referred to as the Great Reset, which Rutte says he knows nothing about.

These protests involving tractors blockading airports, international borders and highways are reminiscent of the Canadian trucker convoy. An odd coincidence in the comparison between the two countries' protests is the close relationship between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Rutte.
