Thousands of tractors and trucks are expected in Berlin as workers protest against the government’s anti-agriculture policies and green agenda.

German police have set a limit on the number of vehicles allowed to attend the protest, leading to confrontations on the outskirts of the city.

The protest, initially led by farmers against subsidy cuts and tax increases, has now been joined by truckers with concerns over rising CO2 pricing and toll road prices.

The government has labeled the protesters as “extremists,” but there is widespread support for the demonstrations among the German people.

The situation reflects a growing discontent with government policies and a perceived lack of democratic tolerance for dissent.

“You’ve probably noticed: Democracy is dying, again. At least if you believe Robert Habeck and other Greens who see the farmers’ protests as a threat to our country. What nonsense,” WELT chief reporter Anna Schneider wrote.

“A democracy that cannot tolerate government criticism and non-violent protests can certainly be considered pitiful… [because] farmers are taking to the streets against the traffic light government’s policies, it is assumed that they are against the system, against democracy as such. What nonsense. Criticism of the government is not the same as criticism of democracy.”
