WATCH: Farmers in Spain join Italy, Poland, and Netherlands in mass European protests

Farmers in Spain have now also joined the mass European protests seen in Italy, Poland and the Netherlands, as reported on Friday, July 15.

The farmers protests seen in Spain, 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.

The rising cost of fuel has also been a contributing factor to the protests.

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

“✊🇪🇸🚜 The Spanish farmers(Putin’s friends as Josep Borrell calls them) preparing to strike‼️”

To which one user responded: “Most of those are Fascists. They want Franco’s dictatorship back.”
