The countdown is on for the farmers Howl of a Protest on Friday. Thousands of farmers, tractors, utes and howling farm dogs will be gathering in more than 50 cities and towns across the country. Groundswell NZ founder Bryce McKenzie says The group is specifically opposing regulations around freshwater, significant natural areas and indigenous biodiversity and rules that were introduced without sufficient consultation and are “unworkable” for farmers and growers. He says rules such as the Ute Tax unfairly target farmers and growers across the country and the protest is sending a message that the rural sector has had enough. But the aim is not to be too disruptive in the towns.
