from Occupy Netherlands:
Occupy Amsterdam Police Raid on 8 December 2011
Somewhere around 13:00 NL time Occupy Amsterdam was raided by the local Police and Military Police. Tents and even medical supplies like for example an arm crutch have been confiscated and removed.
Cleaning vans of the city have been deployed just after the removal of the tents to clean up the pavement.
Occupy Amsterdam has only the big army tent, media tent and the kitchen still standing on beursplein 5.
Elsewhere in the Netherlands, Occupy Arnhem was evicted today, while occupations in the Hague, Rotterdam, Eindhoven, Utrecht, and other Dutch cities continue. Occupy Wall Street stands in solidarity with occupiers across the Netherlands, Europe, and the world. We are truly a global movement. From Tunisia to Russia, 2011 has been a year of global uprising unparalleled in modern history. As we enter 2012, we will continue to strengthen the bonds of solidarity that bind the global 99%, because global capitalism and and the cannibal oligarchies that do its bidding can only effectively be challenged by global action. Together, we are the world's only true superpower.
Bezetten Alles! Occupy Everything!
