Polish Farmers Set To Join European Revolt With Mass Blockade

•,by Paul Joseph Watson

Farmer protests have exploded in multiple different countries against the EU's green agenda and the flooding of markets with cheap grain from Ukraine, which is bankrupting the agricultural industry.

While the EU continues to pour millions of euros into Ukraine to prop up their economy, European farmers have been hit with tax hikes and emissions caps that threaten to destroy their livelihoods.

They cannot compete with the cheap price of imported Ukraine grain and in some cases are being ordered not to farm at all.

In France, there is a farmer suicide every other day as the EU deploys high-tech surveillance drones as a tool of enforcement which in some cases means the farmers cannot even cut back bushes and hedgerows without permission.

In Poland, the Trade Union of Individual Farmers said, "Our patience has run out" as they announced a general strike across the whole country.

"We ask our compatriots for understanding and awareness of the situation we all find ourselves in. We are fighting for our common good, which is to prevent the collapse and bankruptcy of Polish family farms, often multi-generational. Where possible, we ask to avoid travel in the affected areas," the group stated.

From February 9, farmers will launch a blockade of all Polish border crossings with Ukraine, as well as highway blockades in numerous provinces.
