Gates Foundation Supermarket BURNED Down


Dutch farmers are no longer playing games…

During the last week, Dutch farmers have been protesting due to the fact the Dutch minister signed a nitrogen law that aims to cut carbon emissions.

The new law has skyrocketed the price of fertilizer which has led to an uprising among farmers.

Well now a supermarket called Picnic which is owned by the Dutch minister’s brother, has just been burned down.

Bill Gates also invested over $600 million euros into the Picnic due to the fact the company focuses on synthetic meat from plants.

It’s suspected that protesters burned it down but it’s not know what caused the blaze.

The Netherland Posts shared these details:

A large fire raged in a distribution center of online supermarket Picnic in Almelo on Sunday evening. The building on the Zeearend was completely on fire, reports the fire brigade. A little before 1:00 am, the fire master signal was given. However, the fire brigade will still be working on extinguishing the fire for some time.

The fire brigade arrived with several vehicles and flew a drone above the building to get a good picture of the fire. The extinguishing activities were aimed at preventing the fire from spreading to neighboring buildings.

It could be seen that a lot of smoke is released from the fire in the surrounding area. The fire brigade warned local residents to stay out of the smoke and to keep windows and doors closed. The amount of smoke has since decreased significantly. The nearby hospital was not affected by the smoke, according to the fire service.

Dutch Farmers Are even planning their own freedom convoy, check out what Fox News had to say about it:

Farmers in the Netherlands have formed their own version of Canada’s “Freedom Convoy,” blocking highways with tractors, setting bales of hay on fire and taking other actions to protest the government’s recent goal to cut emissions that could force some farms to shutter.

“Where is our prime minister? This country is on fire and the farmers are standing up to the government,” a spokesman for the protests said while standing on top of a hay bale in the town of Eerbeek last week, the Guardian reported.

Roughly 40,000 protesters gathered in central Netherlands to protest plans to curb the emissions of nitrogen and ammonia last month. Weeks later, the protests have continued across the country with no sign of abating.

Photos and videos show farmers causing a highway near Germany’s border to come to a halt, with some Germans reportedly even joining the protest. Hundreds of businesses in three towns were virtually shut down due to three different protests, the Guardian reported Saturday. Meanwhile, some supermarkets have barren shelves due to the farmers also targeting distribution centers earlier this month.
