Anarchists Disrupt EU Treaty Signing In Amsterdam

On October 2, 1997, the "Amsterdam Treaty" was signed in the royal palace on Dam Square in Amsterdam. Of course, the Dutch anarchists couldn't let this go by without another spectacular protest. You might remember the Eurosummit last June in Amsterdam. The euro politicians made very clear their plans for a semi-fascist Europe by arresting 750 demonstrators in just 4 days. [For more info on these events, visit the eurostop website and read about it: http://www.contast.org] Anyways, we called for a jubilation demo on the 2nd at 10 in the morning. The idea was to thank our great leaders for the nice job they are doing for us. We were shouting slogans like: "More police! More roads!", "More work, less pay!", and "Police, beat us up!". It was a crazy thing to see everyone walking around dressed up and carrying EU balloons. Every time one of the euro bastards arrived we cheered them and they felt highly uncomfortable with it. Of course, there was the traditional fighting with the police after the angry mob seriously attacked the German minister who arrived in his Mercedes. Only five minutes of kicking and beating from both sides was enough for us to give the bastards inside a clear message: "We will follow you everywhere you go!" A police car with coppers inside lost some windows on the way. Five people got arrested, so immediately we all went to the nearest police station to demand their freedom. A European flag was burned and undercover coppers had to run to escape the angry mob. Afterwards everybody went to the place nearby where in June 350 people got arrested on charges of membership of a criminal organization. It is still not sure if this group will be prosecuted. The demo demanded for clarity on this point as well. Anyways, we all know the biggest criminals are the ones who are pointing at us, and we will fight them together, Dutch and non-Dutch! If you want to get involved in fighting the EU everywhere then let us know about it. We are more than willing to join in protests in your countries.
