French Farmers Launch Fresh Protests on Streets of Paris over EU’s Green Agenda

French farmers have been forced to yet again flood the streets of Paris in protest over their government’s failure to protect them from agriculture industry-destroying green agenda policies.

The green agenda policies are being pushed by unelected European Union bureaucrats.

Globalist Eurocrats are forcing France and other EU nations to comply with policies designed to meet the targets of the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) “Net Zero” goals, as outlined in the “Paris Climate Accord.”

On Friday, angry protesting farmers were back in Paris demanding more government support and simpler regulations.

The move comes on the eve of a major agricultural fair in the French capital.

Dozens of tractors drove peacefully into Paris carrying flags from Rural Coordination, the farmers’ union that staged the protest.

The protesters then posed with their tractors on a bridge over the Seine River with the Eiffel Tower in the background, before heading towards the Vauban plaza in central Paris, where they all gathered for the demonstration.

WATCH:

The latest protest comes three weeks after farmers lifted roadblocks around Paris and elsewhere in the country after the government offered over 400 million euros ($433 million) to address their grievances over heavy green agenda regulations that are putting them out of business.

“Save our agriculture,” the Rural Coordination posted on X.

One tractor was carrying a poster reading: “Death is in the field.”

The convoy temporarily slowed traffic on the A4 highway, east of the capital, and on the Paris ring road earlier on Friday morning.

French farmers’ actions are part of a broader protest movement in Europe against EU agriculture policies, bureaucracy, and overall business conditions.

Farmers complain that the 27-nation bloc’s environmental policies, such as the Green Deal, which calls for limits on the use of chemicals and greenhouse gas emissions, limit their business and make their products more expensive than non-EU imports.

Other protests are being staged across France as farmers seek to put pressure on the government to implement its promises.

Government officials have held a series of meetings with farmers unions in recent weeks to discuss a new bill meant to defend France’s “agricultural sovereignty.”

The bill will be debated in parliament this spring.

The government’s plan also includes hundreds of millions of euros in aid, tax breaks, and a promise not to ban pesticides in France that are allowed elsewhere in Europe.

French farmers say such bans put them at an unfair disadvantage.

Cyril Hoffman, a cereal producer in the Burgundy region and a member of the Rural Coordination, said farmers now want the government to “take action.”

He said his union is advocating for exempting the farming industry from free trade agreements.

“They can make free trade agreements but agriculture should not be part of them, so we can remain sovereign regarding our food,” Hoffman said.

“Only in France do we let our farming disappear.”

French President Emmanuel Macron planned to visit the Paris Agricultural Fair on Saturday.

However, his office appeared to have removed his agenda a previously scheduled “big debate” with farmers and members of environmental groups at the event.

The globalist president will meet with farmers’ unions before the fair’s opening, his office said late Friday.

Yet France’s major farmer’s union, the FNSEA, said Friday its board decided not to participate in the debate because “conditions for a peaceful dialogue are not met.”

The FNSEA staged another protest in Paris, near the site of the fair, on Friday afternoon.

The Paris Agricultural Fair is one of the world’s largest farm fairs, drawing crowds every year.
