In Bonn and several other cities, tens of thousands of farmers protested against the federal government’s agricultural policy. With tractors they partially paralyzed the traffic. You are demanding less bureaucracy and more say.

Tens of thousands of farmers across Germany protested against the federal government’s agricultural policy. Armed with signs such as “Flood of circulation takes our courage away”, thousands of tractors caused traffic disruptions as they approached the rallies in cities like Bonn, Berlin or Hanover.

According to the police, over 1000 tractors drove into the city center for the central rally in Bonn. Farmers had therefore already made their way to the former federal capital on Monday evening. The police counted around 2,000 tractors on the roads to Hanover, around 1,000 vehicles in Munich and also in Würzburg.

In Schleswig-Holstein 1,700 vehicles were on their way to Rendsburg for rallies, the convoys sometimes reached a length of up to ten kilometers.

Criticism of bureaucracy and environmental associations.

The “Land Creates Connection” initiative called for the rallies. In it, according to their own statements, farmers have come together “across associations and independent of parties”. On their side, the initiative criticizes agricultural policy as “impractical and too bureaucratic”.

Legislation is like incapacitation. The alliance emphasizes: “We too would like to protect nature and the environment, further develop animal welfare, and develop agriculture in a contemporary way”.

However, the industry wants to “help develop specifications suitable for everyday use” – and not that specifications are largely “determined” by environmental and nature conservation organizations. Farmer President Joachim Rukwied named the insect protection action plan, the fertilizer ordinance, the free trade agreement of the EU with the South American Mercosur states and increasing requirements for animal husbandry as examples. “It is simply too much what politics expects of the farming families,” he told the “Passauer Neue Presse”.
