Dutch farmers have called on the world’s blue-collar workers to come together for a Day of International Demonstrations against radical climate policies on July 23.
In a video that’s gaining traction and going viral, the creators call for “Dutch Lions [to] Rise Up Now” before launching into a compilation of civil rights movements featuring the likes of Martin Luther King Jr. and Gandhi.
Interspersed throughout the video is footage of Dutch farmers, fishermen, truckers, and general protesters in the Netherlands taking to the streets and blockading highways and distribution centres.
As MLK’s voice plays in the background, the words “Let’s unite, stand up & rise” fades in and out.
Also included in the video are those who’ve protested various destructive climate policies or stood in solidarity with the Dutch in their own countries, including those in France, Italy, Australia, Canada, and the US. Germany and Poland have also been supporting the farmers’ protests.
“Can they really make a difference?” the video asks before showing a reel of successful nonviolent rebellions beginning in 1905.

Dutch farmers are currently protesting a climate policy that will put a 50% cap on nitrogen and ammonia emissions by 2030. Farmers are the primary targets due to the supposed impact of fertilizer use and livestock. It’s estimated that at least 30% of farmers will be forced out of business and will have to sell their land due to the policy.
The Dutch government knows this and has positioned itself to purchase the land, which is highly dubious, to say the least.
“The honest message … is that not all farmers can continue their business,” a government statement reads.
Many critics of the policy say they’re aware of the government’s real motivations: to force the farmers to sell their land for pennies on the dollar so the government can pave over it, erect new apartment complexes, and bring in hordes of new immigrants.
As Dutch Legal Philosopher Eva Vlaardingerbroek explains while speaking to Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, “What this is about is the Dutch government stealing our farmers’ land, and they’re doing this under the guise of a made-up nitrogen crisis that is basically going to put most of these farmers completely out of business… they’re doing this because they want these want these farmers’ land, and they want it to house new immigrants.”
“They also want it because the farmers are obviously standing in the way of the Great Reset plans that they have for us. Farmers are hardworking, God-fearing, and especially self-sufficient people that are just standing in the way of their globalist agenda.”
🇳🇱The Dutch farmers have had enough and are courageously fighting back against the Great Reset. They deserve your full support. They certainly have mine. It’s very simple: No farmers, no food. #DutchFarmers #boeren pic.twitter.com/SjY8XVWkNV

Similar policies have ‘spontaneously’ popped up in several other countries, including in Canada, where the government is planning to impose nearly the exact same cuts on nitrous oxide emissions from fertilizer specifically but will only enforce a 30% cap rather than a 50% cap.
Still, this cap is more than enough to destroy the lives of thousands of farmers.
The video concludes by calling on supporters of Dutch farmers to come together in peaceful protest on July 23, 2022.
