Farmers vs animal rights activists...

On May 13, 2019, more then 200 animal rights activists from 26 countries occupied the property of a pig farmer in the Netherlands for over 10 hours.
They broke into the stables and farmers were unable to remove the activists from their property.
Police responded to the scene and started negotiating with the activists.

After several hours, the farmers became more and more frustrated with the situation and decided to tip the cars of the activists into the ditch.
Several other angry people started grilling/tailgating meat at the scene to taunt the activists and riot police had to respond to prevent a riot from breaking out. finally, at 11.30 PM, the last activist was removed. Some were arrested.
