Following the province of Friesland, the province of Drenthe decided on Monday to reverse the nitrogen measures taken last week. The decision was announced the moment hundreds of farmers protested again at various provincial houses in the country against nitrogen policy.

Tractors went to several provincial houses in the morning after a call from LTO Noord. For example, the farmers are at the provincial houses in Utrecht, Zwolle, Groningen, Arnhem and Haarlem.

This has caused traffic jams on the A7, A12 and A28, among others. The farmers are angry, among other things, because the government is making a plan to remediate outdated farms in order to reduce nitrogen emissions.

Last Friday, Minister of Agriculture Carola Schouten announced that the advice of the nitrogen committee Remkes will be adopted, in which it is recommended to reduce the livestock.

This Monday's protest is one of many. Last week, access to the Wooldse Veen nature reserve near Winterswijk was blocked and there was a protest at the provincial government office in Leeuwarden.

Again traffic jams on roads to The Hague

This Wednesday is the national protest in The Hague. Among other things, the farmers are planning to occupy the Binnenhof. Also a so-called "traffic jam protest" is again part of the demonstration.

The expectation is that many farmers will set off again with tractors. Earlier this month it led to the busiest morning rush hour ever.
