Third night of protests: anti-lockdown demonstrations continue in the Netherlands

Demonstrations against the restrictions imposed in connection with the coronavirus continue in the Netherlands. Protesters took to the streets for the third night in a row.

The rallies are against the introduction of a curfew. Now it is forbidden to go out on the streets from 9 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. in the cities of the country. But that doesn’t stop people. They set off firecrackers, smash up stores and attack police officers. The police are forced to use harsh measures and disperse the crowd with tear gas. More than 150 people have been detained for rioting.

Recall, a complete lockdown in the Netherlands extended until February 9. The country closed all but grocery stores and entertainment venues. Schools and universities are switched to remote mode.
