Incredible Pictures: Thousands of Tractors Shut Down Highways in Farmer's Anti-Green Madness Pro


Protesters driving thousands of tractors and other pieces of farm machinery in enormous convoys heading to the Hague carried banners and signs reminding Dutch lawmakers of the importance of agriculture, including '#NoFarmersNoFood'. Hundreds of miles of highways were blocked by an estimated 3,000 tractors Wednesday morning.

The day of protest is the thirds of its kind and follows another at the start of October. At the time, Dutch media reported the protests were against a call by the government that herds of animals reared for food should be culled so the nation could meet its European Union-imposed nitrogen emission targets.
