Big protest in Amsterdam. Media?  - - - crickets - - -
From Adam Piggott:

150,000 Dutch protest in Amsterdam
Yesterday 150,000 people took to the streets of Amsterdam to protest the government’s proposed policy of requiring vaccination as a condition to entry for businesses such as bars and restaurants. This approach mirrors the hard line already taken in France which has seen widespread unrest as a consequence.

But if the media was your main source for information, then either the Amsterdam protest did not happen or the numbers were dramatically downplayed. A colleague who attended the protest said that when he got home he turned on the main news bulletin to see how the media would spin the events in which he had firsthand knowledge.

The protest didn’t even make the news.


I work with many emergency services personnel and my contacts said that the numbers were at least 150,000. The crowd apparently was well behaved and in good spirits but the numbers clearly show that ordinary Dutch people will brook no further tightening of the totalitarian rule-set under the guise of a supposed pandemic.

One media report:

More than 20,000 people took part in Sunday’s demonstration against the government’s coronavirus rules, city officials say. The organisers had said they expected 50,000 people to take part in the protest.

France is protesting.  Australian truck drivers are staging slowdowns.  The world is pushing back.

This is not a pandemic, this is political.
