THE EU could be on the verge of more haulage woes as Dutch lorry drivers appeared to join in their Canadian cousins in their “freedom convoy” protest against mandatory Covid vaccines.
The European Union has been experiencing severe lorry delays over recent months as the continent continues to recover from coronavirus disruptions. The bloc’s haulage issue seems to be on track to be further exacerbated as the Dutch began showing their solidarity to Canadian truckers protesting Covid policies and vaccine mandates.
Footage has now emerged on social media showing Dutch lorry drivers seemingly setting up their own “freedom convoy” to demonstrate against Amsterdam’s own policies against the coronavirus.
The hauliers could be seen driving down a local road in Friesland, honking as they passed by the person filming them.
Eight lorries were filmed queuing up, with traffic slowing down behind them.
Leading European Union member states, including France, Germany and the Netherlands, have been suffering severe issues with the haulage industry due to loss of drivers and severe delays.
Overall, an estimated 75 trucks gathered across the region urging colleagues to join in against Covid rules.
Further protests were scheduled to take place across The Netherlands through Sunday And Monday.
