"The real aim here is to get rid of our farmers," the Dutch Party for Freedom leader told me at a large protest against the fertilizer restrictions in the Hague. "Nitrogen is not a real problem. It's an invented kind of problem. It's totally unfair."
The government of Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte is imposing climate change policies, including a 30% reduction in the use of nitrogen, on the agricultural sector that farmers say will limit yields, force them from their land and drive up the cost of food to consumers.
"There would be no Netherlands without our farmers, without our fishermen...They are who we are. They are in our genes. They are in our history. Holland is built on the farmers and fishermen, and everybody has a lot of sympathy for them"
The widescale protests, ongoing for over three years, have reignited as Netherlander's head to the polls next week in provincial elections.
After the United States, the Netherlands is the world's largest exporter of agricultural produce. The Dutch agricultural sector exports nearly $70 billion USD of agricultural produce annually.
