UpdateThe blockade of the A12 in Berendrecht is still ongoing on Friday morning. On Thursday, farmers drove onto the highway to block both the direction of the Netherlands and Antwerp. Between 12 and 1 p.m., the activists will clear the side road next to the A12 so that traffic can pass by.

Protesting farmers have been blocking the border with the Netherlands on various highways since Thursday evening. In Berendrecht, about sixty farmers came together to block the A12 with their tractors. On Friday morning, the activists were relieved by some fellow farmers. To ensure that this ‘changing of the guard’ took place safely, the farmers were accompanied by the police.

Around 11 a.m., the demonstrators decided, in consultation with the police, to clear the side road of the highway, so that traffic can drive past the blockade without any restrictions. This will happen between 12 and 1 p.m., again under the supervision of the police.

In addition to a blockade on the A12, the E19 is also blocked near Meer. One lane has now been opened in both directions. An action is also underway on the E34 in Postel. The farmers block the highway in both directions. It is still unclear when the actions will end.
