Farmers in Poland and Italy have now also joined the mass European protests seen in Netherlands, as reported on Friday, July 8.

The farmers protests seen in Poland and Italy, come after strikes in the Netherlands have led to many supermarkets running out of food, as the anti-government movement continues.

The farmers are protesting due to their outrage over new government regulations that will force them to reduce their nitrogen fertiliser compounds, leading to a reduced number of their livestock, ultimately causing bankruptcy in family-owned businesses.

Video footage of the mass European farming protests is going viral on Twitter with one user posting:

“#Italy : The #farmers of #Bauern city came to the #streets and #blocked the roads in #protest of the #living #conditions and new #environmental #laws. #Bauernproteste #FarmerProtest #DutchFarmersProtest #GermanFarmers #Poland”
