Farmers have been agitating the Netherlands as lawmakers voted Tuesday on proposals to slash emissions of damaging pollutants. As per the farmers, it will likely force the farmers to cut their livestock herds or stop work altogether.
According to the Netherlands government, the emissions of nitrogen oxide and ammonia must be reduced close to the natural areas that are part of a network of protected habitats for endangered plants and wildlife stretching across the European Union.
While thousands of tractors have been gathered outside the parliament building, Prime Minister Mark Rutte stated that the farmers have the right to protest but not to break the law.
“Freedom of speech and the right to demonstrate are a vital part of our democratic society, and I will always defend them,” Rutte said, adding that “… it is not acceptable to create dangerous situations, it is not acceptable to intimidate officials, we will never accept that.”
