I didn’t know police dogs attacking you on the street was for your health. That’s how Amsterdam police were “protecting” anti-lockdown protestors from COVID-19 when they gathered in the streets to fight tyrannical restrictions this weekend.
Mayor Femke Halsema triggered an emergency order to shut down the protestors, and riot police wielded brute force against the crowd.
Watch the disturbing footage:

In addition to using dogs, police didn’t mind beating up unarmed women with batons. Those cops are so brave protecting their health from a virus with a 99.99% survival rate for most people.
Before police launched a vicious assault on the anti-lockdown protestors, thousands of residents fought to end the tyrannical COVID-19 restrictions. Despite a ban on protests, the turnout in Amsterdam was massive.
Wow! Thousands of protesters in Amsterdam demonstrate against Covid restrictions despite a ban on protests.

AP News reported on the enormous protest:
Thousands of people in the Netherlands defied a ban on assembling and demonstrated Sunday against the Dutch government’s coronavirus lockdown measures, gathering on a central square before marching toward a park in Amsterdam.
A small group of demonstrators briefly clashed with riot police as officers worked to clear the crowd from Museum Square based on an order from Amsterdam Mayor Femke Halsema. Reporters at the scene saw at least one person being detained.
The local government had outlawed the protest, saying police had indications some demonstrators might be planning to attend “prepared for violence.” The municipality later issued an emergency order for people to leave the square, and riot police marched across the grass to clear the area, sending the demonstrators into nearby streets.
As usual, mainstream media depicts anti-lockdown protestors as instigators of violence. However, footage from the protest depicts otherwise.
I don’t see protestors using dogs and batons on cops for their health.
But those fighting for freedom and sanity against authoritarian lockdowns get brutalized by riot police.
