Netherlands: Farmers demanding greater recognition drive tractors to The Hague

Нидерланды, The Hague

Dutch farmers drove their tractors to The Hague on Tuesday, demanding a greater recognition of their industry.

The demonstration was triggered by a report that calls on the government to reduce the country's livestock farming in a bid to cut nitrogen emissions.

Some farmers claim that they are being singled out for the pollution. "They are only saying the farmers should cut in on the animals, and meanwhile Schiphol airport is everyday, a lot of flights are going out there", said Sophie van der Burg, one of protesters.

"There are 2,000, over 2,000 tractors here in the neighbourhood. Only the mayor of The Hague wouldn't let them in. The mayor would only let 75 tractors in, but farmers are clever, so they took other ways that the mayor didn't think of," said Tonnie Nooteboom, another protester

The Dutch Motorists Association (ANWB) said the tractors caused some 1,136 kilometres (700 miles) of traffic jams.
