On many streets in northern Germany's inner cities, farmers are not only determining the image with their tractors, but they are also setting the pace for other road users.

In many places, this means for motorists to exercise patience. In Hannover, roads were already closed in the early hours around the Maschsee.

The police had already anticipated traffic delays on the major arterial roads and in the city centre of Hanover.

The massive disability could last in the evenings and also affect public transport, especially bus traffic.

The police therefore advised against driving to the city centre by car. The organizers expected about 1,500 farmers.

Farmers protest against agricultural package:

Among other things, the farmers are protesting against the federal government's agricultural package. "We want politics and associations to talk to us as a base," said Meike Schulz-Broers of the network.

Tracker Demo - Rally to Rendsburg:


Lower Saxony is North German focus of the action day. But also in Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Schleswig-Holstein farmers got into the inner cities on.

In Schleswig-Holstein, a rally in Rendsburg was the destination of a nationwide rally. Especially the Rendsburger Channel Tunnel proved to be a bottleneck with long waiting times.

According to the organizers, the farmers wanted to return home around 12 o'clock.

In Hamburg, tractors stop the U3:


There were also protests in the Hanseatic city of Hamburg in the morning. There, the tractors rolled, inter alia, over the Mönckebergstraße.

In Lüneburg, about 900 tractor drivers drove into the city centre. In the Emsland, the county of Bentheim and the Osnabrücker Land drove the farmers to the central rally in Bonn.

About 300 farmers had registered for information from NDR 1 Niedersachsen for the convoy. As in Berlin, the former federal capital is home to the Federal Ministry of Agriculture.

Farmers fight back against fertilizer:


The farmers in the north are currently facing several challenges: The agricultural package is endangering German agriculture, said Schulz-Broers of the network "Land creates connection".

Many farmers feared that due to the new rules they would have to give up their business. Besides, they worried that the plants could be undersupplied due to the new fertilizer regulations.

The action plan insect protection by Federal Environment Minister Svenja Schulze (SPD), the farmers see critically, as he also provides stricter rules for fertilization.

On top of that, the farmers had to suffer economic losses due to three years of extreme weather. As unfair competition they also feel an EU agreement with the South American domestic market Mercosur:

This would bring cheap agricultural products into the country, which would be produced with fewer conditions than in this country.

Besides, the farmers were frustrated because they were often pilloried and their loved ones were bullied in private.

Organizers started as a Facebook group:


The network had evolved from a Facebook group and has information on its website according to 30,000 members.

Because the farmers' associations had so far been insufficiently aligned, the farmers now wanted to take matters into their own hands.
