The decision is not only received with cheers. There are also concerns. In Belgium, one wonders aloud whether the motorways in the country can handle a Belgian FDF.
”Of course, everyone should be able to demonstrate, but not at the expense of our roads, which are already tough enough, ” says Lydia Peeters, The Minister of mobility. “We are very concerned about our infrastructure. Our roads are already not calculated on cars, let alone heavy tractors.”
Citizens would also like to know whether their government can guarantee the stability of the Belgian motorways in the event that Farmers Defence Force comes to their country. “On May 27, the first demonstration is already planned,” a Flemish citizen expressed her concerns. “I really wonder if we can still speak of a ‘road network’ afterwards.”
