When vaccine passports were being implemented, protests took place around the world but there was hardly any coverage from the media. Due to the cost of living crisis, protests are happening around the world but again, the media turns a blind eye. Protests are erupting across Europe. Spain’s farmers have blocked highways in the southern region of Andalusia to protest rising fuel prices.
The same scenes were captured in videos in The Netherlands where farmers have blockaded supermarket distribution centres. And fishermen have now joined protests by blocking ports. In a video, ships in the Netherlands honk their horn to express their frustration at rising inflation.
Though inflation has started to decline in the Netherlands, households are still feeling the brunt of rising food and energy prices. The Dutch national statistics agency CBS found inflation has fallen over the last three months with fuel prices slightly decreasing but food prices still rising. And inflation is having a far greater impact on households than on the industry, the government’s macro-economic planning agency CPB found.
