Özdemir warns German farmers against radical protests
In the Netherlands, farmers have been demonstrating against stricter environmental regulations for weeks. Dissatisfaction is also growing in Germany — Minister of Agriculture Özdemir is massively opposed.
Federal Agriculture Minister Cem Özdemir sees no reason for farmer protests in Germany to be as radical as those in the Netherlands.
The starting positions in the two countries are not comparable, said the Green politician to the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung. Farmers in the Netherlands must reduce their emissions by up to 95 percent, while in Germany there are more moderate restrictions on fertilizers. “It’s not like there will be a ban on fertilizers. The farmers can continue to fertilize, but in such a way that we bring down the overall excessive nitrate pollution.” Germany has exceeded the nitrate limit values set by the European Community for as long as they have existed.
In the Netherlands, farmers have been protesting for weeks against planned measures to reduce nitrogen emissions. Nationwide, according to the Dutch government’s plan, it should be reduced by an average of 50 percent by 2030, and by more than 70 percent in nature reserves. According to government calculations, the conditions could mean the end for around 30 percent of livestock farmers. In protest, farmers blocked several motorways with tractors, for example, so that there were several hundred kilometers of traffic jams.
In Germany, at the beginning of July, the Federal Council, in a struggle with the EU Commission for stronger groundwater protection in Germany, decided on stricter limiting values for the application of fertilizers and at the same time expanded the areas covered by the regulation. This is the aim of new federal government guidelines for designating “red areas” contaminated with nitrates. Responding to criticism from farmers that the designation of the affected areas was based on a network that was too coarse-meshed, Özdemir said that he now had to implement things that had been neglected in the past. “This also includes getting the federal states to expand a denser measuring network.”
Afterword from the translator:
When you think that before the Plandemic, in Germany alone seven farms closed their production DAILY, because they could no longer create any income for themselves due to ever-increasing EU regulations, which could also turn you overnight into a felon. An old school friend of mine closed his pig farm (eighth generation) over a year ago because his running costs, through EU regulations, were at that time already €30 more each day than his income from his free-range pigs. Just imagine what those costs are now? This is part and parcel of the depopulation and enslavement plan by these “Elites”, and as “The Moon is a Harsh Mistress” said, they need the Romanov treatment.
