Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Anti-vaxxers were joined by Protestants, fundamental religion of the Bible, and mixed with football hooligans and rightwingers, supporters of Thierry Baudet and Geert Wilders. A broad front of protesters that are getting stronger each week as the policy set forth by caretaker cabinet and leadership weakens. Distrust grows and chance of difficult choices who will get lifesaving treatment in hospitals and a ICU. The black code to leave people to die at home in a matter of days. Record breaking infections as the Delta variant are offered an increased opportunity to replicate in the masses in shopping areas, events and drinking festivals.

Protests continued in the Netherlands for the third day in a row Sunday, with police issuing an emergency order in the eastern city of Enschede, near the German border.

Protesters set off fireworks and vandalized properties in cities -- Groningen and Leeuwarden in the north, Enschede in the east, and Tilburg in the south -- on Sunday evening. 130 people have been arrested since the protests began, police said.

A football match in Leeuwarden was briefly disrupted after supporters, who were barred from the games because of COVID restrictions, threw fireworks into the ground, Dutch media reported.

In Rotterdam, the second-largest Dutch city, police arrested 26 people on Sunday after fans grew rowdy at a game -- people attacked police, threw bins, and lit fireworks. 

But protests were much less violent than the ones that erupted in Rotterdam on Friday evening and The Hague on Saturday
