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.
Bill Gates invested over $600 million euros into the Picnic due to the fact the company focuses on synthetic meat from plants.
🇳🇱 The Dutch minister who pushed the nitrogen law that grants the government the power to expropriate our farmers’ land has a brother who owns online supermarket @picnic. Guess who invested $600 million in that company? Bill ‘fake meat’ Gates. This is what corruption looks like. pic.twitter.com/qEm0WThTk8

The Counter Signal provided further details on the latest Picnic facility fire:
According to De Telegraaf, one employee immediately noticed that the Rotterdam building was full of smoke when they arrived at work. Upon further investigation, they found that three of Picnic’s prized electric delivery cars were on fire. The sprinkler system quickly extinguished the fire, with firefighters arriving soon after.
No one was injured in the incident, and the area has been sectioned off while investigations are underway.
As previously reported by The Counter Signal, the second of the Gates-funded facilities to be set ablaze happened in late July, when a Picnic building in Almelo was filmed burning in a massive fire that ultimately consumed the entire building.
In December 2021, the first of the fires broke out in a Roosendaal Picnic facility. While the building survived, operations in West Brabant were brought to a standstill.
No arrests have been made in any of the incidents.
While only speculative, many believe the fires are part of the Dutch farmers' uprising.
"The brand Picnic is an online-only supermarket which is designed to deliver groceries straight to the buyer’s front door using “environmentally friendly” electric vehicles. The company is active in 200 cities across Europe, including countries such as the Netherlands, Germany and only just recently, France," Rebel News noted.
