By blocking access to Paris with their tractors, French farmers are fighting the EU’s version of the Green New Deal that aims to eliminate all fossil fuel use in the years ahead. As we noted in yesterday’s Hotline: no energy means no food.
Although we don’t think protesters have a right to block commerce, we at CTUP are in complete solidarity with the farmers.
These farmers have had it with the bureaucratic green diktats. And so have others. In the Netherlands, the Farmer-Citizen Movement made substantial gains in a recent election.
Our only question is: Where, oh where are the protests in the United States against the existential threat of environmental tyranny?
