Reflections And Report On The Nov. 19 Riots In Rotterdam [Netherlands]

Rotterdam. Netherlands. A comrade in the Netherlands has sent a first-hand report from last night’s extraordinary anti-police riots in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, which included Dutch police firing their guns into the crowd.

Some out-of-touch “leftists” have tried to dismiss these riots because they coincided with and/or overtook a protest called by the right wing against new government restrictions.

In Amsterdam and Eindhoven, riots broke out on Sunday after far-right groups like PEGIDA-NL and lateral thinkers (1) called for demonstrations against the curfew in both cities. The strange Querfront mix in the Netherlands at these types of demonstrations is similar to that in Germany and Austria. What is different is that youths hijacked the lateral-thinkers protests in Eindhoven on Sunday. Some fascist hooligans complained on social media that they were beaten up by migrant youths in the process. In some videos, youths chanted anti-Semitic slurs.
