Farmers fighting for our food supply

Family farmers in Belgium and the Netherlands are being forced off their land by pollution rules that emanate from the EU. Under the pretense of opposing global warming, these rules actually have the effect of forcing small farmers to sell out to agribusiness.

The farmers are not taking this lying down. There are massive demonstrations in Brussels now, as there were in the Netherlands last year.

These farmers are acting heroically, and it is shameful that our media in America and even in Europe are giving them so little coverage.
