'It's all because the Dutch eat too much. They have too many cows, too much meat. So why send their dung over to us?' said Rajiv Vora, a protest organiser from the Gandhi Peace Foundation. A Netherlands embassy spokesman in Delhi replied to this accusation. 'It's not true we're fat. We Dutch are rather boney. I would not like to mention the other nations with a more serious fat problem,' the spokesman said.
Police stopped the stinking protest from crossing into Delhi, evoking an old law that the traffic of ox carts across the Yamuna river bridge was banned during the morning rush hour. But when some farmers voluntered to carry dishes of fly-swarming manure balanced on their turbans into the capital, they too were turned back by police ready to shoot off tear gas. The Dutchman, who had received funding for his project from Dutch cattlemen, has left India after being heckled at a public meeting in Gujarat.
