WATCH: Massive Farmers and Truckers Protest Against Cutting Tax Break


This is what they fear.

Us, collectively, gathering in opposition to their tyrannical ways.

Looks like a breaking point has been reached in Europe on some levels.

It’s always encouraging to see so many people come together to protest the corrupt powers that be.

Fox reports:

Farmers clogged Berlin streets with their tractors on Monday, honking their horns in protest at a plan to scrap tax breaks on the diesel they use, the climax of a week of protests that has tapped into wider discontent with Germany’s government.

Columns of tractors rolled into the capital ahead of the demonstration at the landmark Brandenburg Gate. Over the past week, farmers have blocked highway entrances and slowed traffic across Germany with their protests, intent on pushing Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s government to abandon the planned cuts entirely.

They’re not satisfied with concessions the government has already made. On Jan. 4, it watered down its original plan, saying that a car tax exemption for farming vehicles would be retained and the cuts in the diesel tax breaks would be staggered over three years.

Farmers say their frustration runs deeper than the current plans.

“We are not standing here today just because of the agricultural diesel cuts,” Theresa Schmidt, head of an association that represents young farmers, told the rally. “In recent years and decades, we have been beaten endlessly — more and more requirements, tighter rules and restrictions.”

“We have more and more requirements and are being overloaded with food from abroad that is produced below our standards,” said Alfred Winkler, a farmer from the Bavarian region of Franconia.

This evening the protest continues…

Even Elon chimed in, bringing more western eyes on the subject:

As someone once said, ‘no farmers, no food’. That wouldn’t be one of the elites goal, would it?
