Another Farmers’ Revolt Takes Over Major European City…The People Are Fighting Back!

(Tea Party 247) – We have reported previously on large-scale revolts organized by European farmers who have driven their tractors to major cities to protest restrictive “green” policies that would destroy their businesses and their livelihood.

This time around, farmers have assembled on the Avenue Foch near the Champs Elysees and the Arc de Triomphe in Paris to protest regulations which they claim would destroy the agricultural sector in their nation.

Their main grievance is “agri-bashing” at the hands of the media and politicians who blame the farmers for environmental issues and are pressured to change their behavior for the sake of saving the planet.

The farmers are outraged at how this is validating attacks at the hands of vegan activists on butchers and widespread calls to ban the weedkiller glyphosate, which President Emmanuel Macron would like to ban by 2021.

They’re also concerned that EU trade deals with Canada and the South American Mercosur block would flood the French market with cheaper goods at lower standards.

The two principle farmers’ unions have demanded to meet privately with Macron to air their grievances.

Summit News notes:

Earlier this month, German farmers blocked roads in Hamburg with their tractors to protest against environment regulations.

Last month, thousands of Dutch farmers also descended on Amsterdam to protest against a government proposal that livestock production be slashed by up to 50% in the name of preventing global warming.

The Yellow Vest movement in France, which just marked its first anniversary, also began as a backlash against onerous gas tax hikes and other regulations impacting rural workers.

The people are speaking. They want policies that reflect their interests, not the interests of a globalist elite who think they can play god.
