“In this country, farming families who produce food are being exchanged for illegal alien Muslim asylum seekers,” tweeted Flevo member of parliament Niek Beenen.
FreeWestMedia (h/t RF) “The province of Flevoland has bought nitrogen space in the Noordoostpolder. With the nitrogen space that has been freed up, the province can help a number of PAS claimants in the Noordoostpolder. This opportunity has arisen because the government has bought an agricultural business in the Noordoostpolder. The government wants to set up a registration centre for asylum seekers at the location of the farm,” reads the document.
“The constant denial that immigration, housing, nature policy, agriculture and nitrogen/climate have anything to do with each other is laughable,” he added.
PVV-leader Geert Wilders also responded to the document. “Here’s the proof. It just says it all. The farmer has to go because they want to build a registration centre for asylum seekers on his land. They are completely destroying the Netherlands. Our farmers out, the fortune seekers in. No wonder people are furious,” Wilders noted.
FVD group chairman Brent Hadderingh commented: “Farmers out, asylum seekers in. Really every caricature has been surpassed. Unashamedly.”
“According to people […] I spread ‘conspiracy theories’ when I say that farmers have to make way for migrants. It clearly says here: ‘The government wants to set up a registration centre for asylum seekers at the location of the agricultural business’. What’s a ‘conspiracy theory’?” asked legal philosopher Raisa Blommestijn.
The application centre will be in Bant, where about 1500 people live who do not welcome asylum seekers.
Meanwhile, countless photos and videos of the farmers’ strike against land expropriation in the Netherlands have circulated on the Internet, even though the mainstream media tried to ignore the protest. The situation escalated at the beginning of this week. The farmers have also been joined by fishermen and seafarers, blocking ports and thereby endangering the already fragile supply chains. The government, for its part, has called in armored personnel carriers.
The authorities have tried to put down the protest with tear gas and batons. The farmers responded with blockades, hay bales and manure. There appears to be no end in sight to their resolve.
Dutch farmers are already being harassed by the government which wants them to give up 30 – 40% of its cattle to reduce nitrogen emissions.
