Dutch pandemic enthusiasts burned down a COVID-19 testing center


Protesters opposed to coronavirus lockdowns in several Dutch cities clashed with police over the weekend after new restrictions went into effect.

Videos of the demonstrations posted online show large crowds of people — many not wearing masks — using bicycles to build barricades along city streets, and hurling rocks at officers and passing police vans. Shops were broken into and looted.


In the city of Urk, northeast of Amsterdam, police reported that protesters torched a COVID-19 testing center.
