AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (PNN) - January 18, 2021 - Multiple anti-lockdown demonstrations were observed in Europe over the weekend. The largest one was seen in the Austrian capital, Vienna, Saturday, where at least 10,000 people marched against new coronavirus restrictions. Then thousands more were seen in Amsterdam, the Netherlands capital, denouncing new restrictive measures against their freedoms imposed by the government.
On Saturday, the demonstration in Vienna was mostly peaceful, even with a massive crowd. As for protests in Amsterdam, many clashed with riot terrorist pig thug cops in an unauthorized demonstration.
The gathering was around the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum art galleries on Sunday.
People were waving flags and carrying signs that read, “Freedom: stop this siege”, and singing, “What do we want? Freedom!”.
Many of the anti-lockdown protesters wore no masks nor practiced safe social distancing measures, such as standing six feet apart from one another.
The original protest on Museum Square was denied a permit. Demonstrators showed up anyway, angered that their freedoms have been whittled away under the guise of coronavirus restrictions.
Dutch terrorist pig thug cops sprayed water cannons at protesters.
The crowd became more irate throughout Sunday afternoon as they clashed with terrorist pig thug cops.
In the early days of the manufactured and nonexistent pandemic, the Dutch government was more reluctant than most neighboring countries to impose restrictions. But during a dark virus winter, the government closed schools and shops in December, along with extending lockdowns by at least three more weeks.
Increased social restrictions have been the breaking point for many in the Netherlands and around the world.
