Netherlands: Clean-up underway in Haarlem after night of anti-curfew riots

Netherlands, Haarlem
January 26, 2021 at 04:42 GMT +00:00 · Published

City employees were deployed in Haarlem on the night from Monday to Tuesday to clear up the streets in the aftermath of the third night of anti-lockdown demonstration in a row.

Police officers and city employees were seen clearing up the shattered glass and debris from burnt vehicles left in the streets of Haarlem following the third anti-lockdown protest in a row amid a nationwide lockdown imposed to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The protests came in the wake of a curfew which came into effect on Saturday evening. The public is no longer allowed outside between 21:00 and 04:30 local time (20:00 GMT and 03:30 GMT), unless they are going to work or it is an emergency, and those exempt must carry the necessary documentation when they are out between those times. Violators risk a fine of 95 euros ($115).

The curfew - the first of its kind to be imposed across the country since World War II - is expected to remain in place until at least February 10.
