It’s a shitstorm in Toulouse, France as angry farmers dump massive loads of manure in protest over agricultural policies

Enraged French farmers stage protest
Enraged French farmers protested in the southwest city of Toulouse on Tuesday, where they deposited heaps of manure in front of city buildings.
The pungent demonstration was a collective outcry against what they perceive as the government’s detrimental agricultural policy, which they say is leaving them with heightened hardship. The protest drew the participation of nearly 400 tractors and 1,000 farmers from various locations in the southwest of France, as they gathered in the city after rallying at designated meeting points in the region at dawn.

In the early hours of the morning, the enraged French farmers staged their protest in Toulouse, horns blaring and trailers filled with hay and manure in tow. As they approached the city centre, they occupied entire lanes, leading to massive traffic disruptions and congestion.

According to the demonstrators, the heightened taxes, fees and social charges are imposing difficulties on farmers all through the region. These tax increments and additional fees add to rising expenses for fuel and animal feed, as well as a general increase in the cost of living across the nation.
The protests on Tuesday occurred in the wake of several demonstrations in the region last November, as farmers expressed fear for their livelihood.
