Netherlands: Anti-repression action in The Hague


On August 3rd 2016, several anarchists in the Netherlands received police visits. In The Hague, the police delivered letters containing the intentions of the mayor Jozias van Aartsen to prohibit anarchists from setting foot in the Schilderswijk neighbourhood for the coming two months.

On August 8th 2016, we threw hundreds of flyers from the tenth floor of the city hall in The Hague, reading “Stop repression against anarchists! Stop police brutality – Down with the mayor Van Aartsen!” and also distributed hundreds of leaflets outside the city hall. An hour later, we repeated this at the Hague Market in Schilderswijk. The reason for this action is the mayor’s attempt to impose an exclusion order against anarchists.

Here is the text of the leaflet, which was previously published as an article.

We will not be intimidated by the mayor, the police or anyone else. Our struggle for freedom and anarchy is uncompromising and continues unabated!

Long live anarchy!
