Rotterdam last night

Last night.

The Netherlands.

Police arrested at least 70 people after rioting broke out for a third night around the Netherlands on Monday, after weekend protests that were initially linked to dissent over a government decision to implement a nighttime curfew.

But the motivation behind vandalism and other incidents Monday in cities ranging from Rotterdam and Amsterdam to smaller centres of Haarlem, Geleen and Den Bosch was no longer clear, with rioters overwhelmingly in their teens.

…The curfew, the first in the country since World War Two, was imposed after the National Institute for Health (RIVM) warned a new wave of infections is on its way due to the “British variant” of COVID-19, though numbers of new infections in the Netherlands have been declining for weeks. Some 4,129 new cases were reported on Monday, the lowest number since Dec. 1.

      although it’s not entirely clear yet what is really afoot here as yet I think you’re scratching at something many of us quietly suspect.

      remain unsure about the actor though.

          Absolutely Ciaran.

          Clearly what is happening there is that young man is suffering from back trouble and the nice policeman is helping massage his back with his wellness stick.

          It’s all good. Bloody paranoid conspiracy nuts.

            Police training does not seem to matter anymore in a lot of these events. Why is a police man hitting this young fella sitting down peacefully? Jesus Christ, they are idiots.

            reverse yer engines there lads….

            I was only referring to my doubts over the origin of C19 itself (complicated mammals and food market mullarkey)

    Silly young people.

    Don’t they know that their governments know what’s best for them.

    Also, savage headline Bodger.

      Bloody ratlickers.

      They should all be rounded up and put in special camps in high concentrations so they can spread their disease amongst themselves.

      Seems fair…

    I see many, many broken windows. Terrible to see antifa and BLM instigating riots so far from home.
