Angry farmers prevented Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck (Greens) from leaving a ferry in Schlüttsiel in Schleswig-Holstein. They blocked the pier on Thursday, a police spokesman told the German Press Agency. Habeck, who is also the Minister of Economic Affairs, therefore had to return to the Hallig Hooge. A spokeswoman for Habeck told the dpa that the minister was happy to talk to the farmers. “Unfortunately, the security situation did not allow a conversation with all farmers, and the offer made by Minister Habeck to talk to individual farmers was unfortunately not accepted.” The farmers are outraged because of the traffic light coalition’s planned reduction in subsidies.
