This is a series of links to articles and videos sent in by C. who has a firm grasp on many things Dutch.
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.
First, please watch this first five minutes of a Danish TV show with one of Facebook’s top execs. Although we hope to have the whole thing done over the course of next week, this first segment contains an admission which is so stunning it is hard to believe he said it out loud like it was an OK thing to say.
And if you do not think this is a big deal, consider it in the context of the video below, and the video below in the context of the one above.
The company that tells you what you can say and not say about a person with zero consideration of what is true, wants you to use money it invents and completely controls.
How would this not become a Chinese like, Social Credit system where Facebook can cancel or refuse to allow you to buy airline or rail tickets or anything else someone with whom it disagrees. And at the moment it disagrees with anyone not sporting a Neo-Marxist value set.
Of all the events I see the ones that frighten me the most are these kinds of things.
That the Australian government officially believes in mob rule now instead of rule of law, and that there must only ever be one position allowed to be taken by any public figure on important issues. No nuances. No shades of grey. This is terrifying.
Parliament now feels that the man who attacked an Australian senator should face no charges because the parliament does not like what he said, should scare the living shit out of all of us.
Not that the above post is not scary enough, but a reader from Oz tells us in a comment that he cannot see this video in Australia.
An Australian, is forbidden from seeing a video of their own parliament in his own country.
Lets hope they can’t block bit.tube yet:
For those of you that think the RCMP are honest actors and act in accordance with rule of law and the enforcement of the legal rights of the public, please watch the videos at the bottom of this post.
How police are using new software to expand surveillance of citizens’ activities.
The RCMP has been quietly running an operation monitoring individuals’ Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media activity for at least two years, The Tyee has learned.
The existence of Project Wide Awake has never been reported.
And The Tyee investigation revealed that the RCMP has moved from a “reactive” approach — analyzing specific social media accounts as part of a criminal investigation — to a “proactive approach,” which the RCMP said aims to “help detect and prevent a crime before it occurs.”
That involves ongoing wide-scale monitoring of individuals’ social media use and could pose a threat to Canadians’ privacy and charter rights, say experts.
Yes the RCMP are now doing pre-crime. Maybe that was their excuse for looting the homes of people in High River for legally owned guns using a list the RCMP was expressly forbidden from having by an act of Parliament under Stephen Harper.
