October 1st, The Hague. Thousands of farmers arrived driving their farm tractors to The Hague to combat the often negative image of farmers and their farms portrayed in the media, by some politicians, and by activists. The farmers came from all the regions in The Netherlands to make a statement about the current policy in the Dutch agricultural sector. Around 20.000 farmers gathered at the Malieveld, where several speeches were given by Dutch politicians.
