WATCH: German farmers organize mass demonstrations against the Gretas of the world

Thousands of farmers are marching against German agricultural policy in Bonn on Tuesday. The protest was triggered by a series of agricultural regulations recently passed by the federal cabinet to reduce the negative environmental impact. The farmers criticize the climate plans and "farmer bashing". In Bonn, 8,000 to 10,000 farmers with about 800 tractors from all over Germany are expected.Farmers warned that current policies are endangering family farms. In addition, "farmer bashing" - condescending remarks about farmers - is causing annoyance. In addition to the central rally in Bonn, there will be nationwide rallies in many other cities.
