DEN HAAG – During a protest against the 1,5m distancing measure because of Corona, Dutch police units clashed with several protesters. After some protesters ignored to leave the area, the police decided to end the protest with brute force.
The protest was forbidden by a judge because the judge expected too many people to come to the protest. A few hundred people came anyway. The mayor gave permission for them to protest, but more and more people were coming. Most of them were aged between 50 and 80 years old. When unexpectedly a group of football hooligans appeared and started fighting the police, several anti-riot units showed up to end the protest. Many elderly people were smashed or hit by water cannons, injuring several.
The event happened on June 21, 2020.
