Farmers to Schiphol, massive ‘party’ in Wijster after arrests | Inland

-

The farmers drove tractors on regional roads and even on the highway, despite a ban in the northern provinces. The goal of the action on Wednesday evening was initially unclear. Social media talk about a barbecue and ‘afterparty’, a party.

The police confirm the massive turnout. It was decided not to intervene. “Our eyes are on the situation. We know what’s going on. However, we will not actively enforce this, as long as it does not get out of hand, ”said a police spokesman. Many images crop up on Facebook and Twitter. How many people were present at the unannounced protest is still unclear.

Things also got restless around Schiphol. Dozens of farmers have reportedly spontaneously headed for the airport, but have been stopped by the military police. Among other things, they were located on the Loevesteinse Randweg. The group was not allowed to continue for safety reasons and was led away. An exit on the A4 has been closed. Police buses act as blockade vehicles.

In the Flevopolder in Emmeloord, dozens of farmers have gathered under the Poldertoren. A protest was launched there with the permission of the municipality. Several speakers spoke from a stage. It was otherwise quiet. On Thursday, the polder farmers will continue to Dronten.

Arrests

Earlier in the day, some sixty dairy farmers were released after they were arrested in Wijster for blocking a waste processing company with tractors and cars. Dozens of friends and family members then went to the arrest complex in Assen to wait for their loved ones. The police offered them coffee.

Demonstrating with agricultural vehicles has been prohibited in Drenthe, Groningen and Friesland since Monday.
