Countrywide riots, arson against covid restrictions in Netherlands
In Eindhoven, protesters threw fireballs, looted supermarkets, rampaged shops and damaged a railway station while in Amsterdam police used water cannons, mounted officers and dogs to disperse protesters. Violence continues.

AMSTERDAM, Jan 26: The Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte has condemned the riots against coronavirus restrictions as "criminal violence".

Dutch rioters protesting covid restrictions attacked police and set vehicles on fire. The focus of protest was the unprecedented curfew introduced on Saturday and Sunday to contain the spread of covid. Over 200 people have been detained, police said. The violence continued in Amsterdam, The Hague and other cities on Monday night.

The demissionary Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte had resigned on January 15 following a scandal relating to child benefits.

The worst of violence was in the southern city of Eindhoven, where protesters threw fireballs, looted supermarkets, rampaged shops and damaged a railway station. There were also protests in Amsterdam where police used water cannons, mounted police and dogs to disperse protesters. Most places in the country witnessed some form of protests or other against covid restrictions.

Eindhoven Mayor John Jorritsma told media Sunday night that he was afraid the country is heading towards a "civil war."

The Dutch police had to teargas when covid testing centres were set ablaze in the northern region. "The fire in a screening centre in Urk goes beyond all limits," Health Minister Hugo de Jonge said.

"This has nothing to do with protest, this is criminal violence and we will treat it as such," Rutte told reporters on Monday.

The tough covid restrictions included night curfew from 21:00 to 04:30 hrs. The curfew is said to be the first in the Netherlands since World War II.

Bars and restaurants have been closed since October and the schools and shops since December. There have been a total of 9,44,000 coronavirus infections so far and more than 13,500 deaths.

Several countries in Europe and the US had witnessed protests against coronavirus restrictions. In the US, hundreds of healthcare officials across the country had to resign in the face of threat to their life posed by armed protesters. While sections of protesters saw in the restrictions like wearing face mask an encroachment on their freedom, others were protesting against lockdowns that led to economic hardships.
