Action leader John Fassaert of the ZLTO Hulst and twelve other farmers took action between 9 and 11 am on the roundabout in the Absdaalseweg near Intratuin in Hulst. It’s no coincidence that it’s on the roundabout.
“Our slogan is: ‘Farmers no longer know which way to go'”, explains Fassaert, who emphasizes that this is a public-friendly action.
“There is a lot of understanding for us. A lot of thumbs up behind the windows, sometimes a truck or colleague drives spontaneously around the roundabout.”
“People have to wait a minute at most. Most tractors are parked on the roadside, three are driving on the roundabout, but normal traffic is allowed. You can attract attention by kicking a lot of commotion, but also this way: without damage. Those who have to go to the hospital get priority. No point.”
