Dutch farmer protests reach fever pitch

Farmer protests are reaching a fever pitch in the Netherlands.

Thousands of farmers are blocking borders, towns, police stations, and even entrances to grocery stores amid the government’s plan to reduce pollution, which could put farmers out of business. Reports on social media say store shelves are starting to get bare.

The Netherlands is the second-largest agriculture exporter to Germany, which is considered Europe’s economic powerhouse.
