Thank you C for compiling all of this:
English language article:
Police in The Hague said they arrested several people at a protest against the Dutch coronavirus rules after they were attacked by demonstrators. One officer was injured in the incident, police confirmed in a statement. Separately, four more suspects were interrogated in connection with violence at a June anti-coronavirus measures rally also in The Hague.
It was not clear what led to the confrontations between protestors and police at around 2 p.m on Thursday. “We have acted because several protesters behaved provocatively and aggressively towards the police,” police said. […]

Riots ‘highly counterproductive”, Justice Min says
Rioting and unrest in three Dutch cities in the past week is highly counter-productive, Justice and Security Ferd Grapperhaus said on Thursday. The rioting surprised many, and was believed by some to have been born out of youth frustration, boredom, and anger related to government rules in place to stop the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 novel coronavirus.
“This is not tolerable. We have a social issue, coronavirus, which no one has asked for. We are trying to solve it as best we can,“. Grapperhaus said. “The last thing you should do is riot, [and] commit vandalism,” he said, according to newswire ANP.
Grapperhaus called the unrest in Amersfoort, The Hague and Utrecht anti-social, saying that it was not only young people involved in the criminality. “I also see guys aged 30 or 40 walking in between,” he said.
The minister was set to speak with the mayors of those three cities next week to determine if the national government could offer more assistance.
On Wednesday a third person was arrested for inciting riots in the Kanaleneiland district of Utrecht. The 21-year-old from IJsselstein is accused of using social media to rally people to cause trouble in the streets, the Public Prosecution Service said.
A 17-year-old from Utrecht was also taken into custody for throwing rocks at police and setting off fireworks during the unrest. He was found using closed-circuit video images.

Right before the police took off:
Er gaat op twitter een filmpje rond waarbij je de demonstranten de undercover Romeo’s zomaar ‘ziet insluiten’ waarna ze vertrekken in t busje, maar wat er aan vooraf ging is niet te zien.
Dat is hier wel te zien.

This was across from the Binnenhof / parliament.
C. adds the following observation. A surprise to no one, but its good to see how consistent all our formerly representative governments are across the Western World:
This is not the first such protest, but looks like the biggest yet.looks like police had carte blanche, they beat people with truncheons.
Interesting how the vice-mayor ordered them to hold back during the muslim riots the last few days, at least in Utrecht.
