The Netherlands: ‘No Justice No Peace’ Banner in the Schilderswijk

18.12.17: Today some anarchists hung a banner in the Schildeswijk (a working class district in The Hague City Center) with the message “No Justice No Peace! All Cops Are Bastards”.

Leaflets were also distributed in the district that contained an analysis of the court case against the police officers who murdered Mitch Henriquez*. A comrade was arrested after the action and banned for one week from for entering districts such as the Schilderswijk.

Fight Against Police Brutality!
For Anarchy!

*Note from Insurrection News: Mitch Henriquez was a young man from Aruba who was holidaying in The Netherlands in 2015 when he was attacked by 5 cops for no reason at the Zuiderpark in The Hague. Mitch died from the attack which was captured on video, sparking several nights of fierce rioting in the Schilderswijk against the racist, violent cops. Two of the 5 cops were charged with killing Mitch but got let off recently with suspended jail sentences because the public prosecution department claimed they were suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome and that their families had been threatened.
