Dutch farmers protest government’s agricultural policy

Thousands of farmers in the Netherlands gathered Saturday in the Hague to protest the government's agricultural policy.

Protestors participated in the demonstration that was organized with the support of various institutions.

Farmers gathered in Zuiderpark to protest the government's decision to reduce nitrogen emissions.

The municipality of the Hague banned tractors from entering the city to maintain public order.

It allowed only two tractors to enter, citing an "emergency order."

Far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders and the leader of the far-right Forum for Democracy party, Thierry Baudet, addressed the demonstration.
