Massive farmer protests have taken over Germany over the past few weeks. In scenes similar to the historic Freedom Convoy, German farmers and truckers have united in protest over new climate regulations which will scrap a tax subsidy on farmers operating diesel tractors. Germany’s ruling socialist coalition is the latest Western European country to target farmers on their quest to somehow solve climate change but it appears they have pushed the German people too far this time.

All throughout Germany, farmers are engaging in peaceful demonstrations as their livelihoods have been put at risk. In support of the German farmers, Polish farmers, Dutch farmers and Romanian farmers are also staging their own protests.

The equation is simple. No farmers = no food. With similar climate measures currently in the works to target Canadian farmers, this is a story that Canadians should be watching closely.
