Protesting farmers are blocking border crossings between Belgium and the Netherlands, the Belgian newspaper Soir reports.
Referring to data from the Flemish Traffic Center and the Royal Netherlands Tourist Club, the publication writes that the columns block, in particular, the roads leading from the Netherlands Bergen op Zoom, Breda and Eindhoven to the large Belgian port of Antwerp.

In recent days, protests by farmers have been growing in the EU countries, demanding that the pan-European agricultural policy be changed, numerous restrictions, including environmental ones, be lifted from them, and the uncontrolled import of cheap foreign products be stopped. Various trade unions claim that in the EU, the work of farmers has practically ceased to bring profit due to the policies of the European Commission and countries.
