Even after the historic defeat of the fascist government in India, the neoliberal order has been none the wiser. While in India the Modi government had introduced the draconian farm laws with no logic or rationale simply dancing to the tune of Adani’s ease of doing business, the government in Netherlands has introduced similar restrictions on farming in the name of building a green economy. This is nothing but a ruse perpetrated by the Prime Minister Mark Rutte under the aegis of the neo imperialist mafia— The European union with the support of crony capitalist Boris Johnson to further their own agenda of unequal development that is driving the whole planet to perdition in the bandwagon of corporate-funded governments. It is no hidden secret how Starbucks and Walmart have appropriated the politics of ecological preservation with their surreptitious subterfuge of branding their enterprises as eco-friendly while destroying indigenous lives to amass huge resources and disturb ecological and social balance. They have so much away over the puppet regimes that we call democracy now that they decide what is lawful and what is not by undermining the greatest right of citizens all over the world, which is to fight for their rights on the streets and challenge the government, by protest if possible and by force of necessary.
The government of Netherlands wants to prohibit existing farming practices like it had prohibited speeding at highways for fear of nitrogen emissions. The main agenda behind these prohibitions is twofold. On the one hand they are taking away public autonomy from its own citizens on multiple levels and making way for a docile and servile workforce that will toil endlessly, and what is more, thankfully in the dreary and Dickensian workhouse run by the rich and wealthy. So there will be an overhaul of the traditional intensive livestock rearing and farming practices but industries will face no such repressive measures because if the latter feels that their business is running at a loss, then they can simply set shop in a country which is ready to sell its environment and resources at a much lower rate and with no such terms and conditions regarding pollution control. Indian government would have been a great choice had it not been defeated by the fighting spirit of the farmers ‘movement.
It is a gimmick of governmentality to shirk from responsibilities of granting land to the farmers and livestock rearers because the mafia of European union through the plan of its Natura 2000 sites has stated that “Member States must ensure that the sites are managed in a sustainable manner, both ecologically and economically”. The doublespeak is nowhere as obvious as here, when ecology is directly associated with economy. There are many recourses that the government can take to reduce pollution that would excuse them from the option of blaming the farmers of Netherlands such as investing more on research and maintaining an active pan-European peasant councils to discuss these serious issues of environmental harm. What does a mafia like EU know other than threatening those that they are completely dependent upon to assert their rule as the rule of law? The farmers of Netherlands are at a juncture where their present movement can only go forward. Like the farmers of India, they have blocked roads and created blockades at various cities and important sites throughout the country. The despotism of puppet regimes disguised as democracies will be halved in two by the guillotine of international rebellion at various locations wherever the people fight against their oppression. The present farmers’ movement is no longer a national affair located in India and must be welcomed on an international level because the ones who toil to feed us have more knowledge about the environment than those corrupt politicians and officials who see economy even in ecology and call for a balance that is more sustainable to their own greed and avarice.
