The Netherlands Imposes Strict Lockdown From 5 P.M. Sunday In Fear of Protests; Arrests Several People as a “Precaution”

Does anyone recall the movie Minority Report, where special police units arrest people before committing a crime?

That’s the reality citizens of the Netherlands face with their government’s latest lockdown. 

In fear of a repeat of last week’s chaotic Rotterdam protests, the Netherlands government has issued a strict lockdown from 5 p.m. Sunday. 

The country will grind to a halt in the government’s efforts to thwart potential riots.

The Netherlands government took an unprecedented step to deter further chaos that spits in the face of human rights. 

Authorities made several arrests as a “precaution” to avoid protests.

So, citizens can get arrested now because they might get out of hand at a protest?

That sinister action by the Netherlands government would baffle George Orwell. 

The harsh evening lockdowns start at 5 p.m. on Sunday, and the entire European nation will effectively close at that time every night.

Supermarkets are the lone exception to this authoritative rule.

As reported by Spiegel:

The Netherlands want to react to the rapidly increasing numbers of infections and patients in the country with a hard cut. An evening lockdown will apply nationwide from Sunday: Shops, cultural venues, restaurants and sports clubs will then have to close at 5 p.m. every day.

Prime Minister Mark Rutte announced that the tightened measures will initially apply for three weeks . “In the Netherlands, everything is then basically closed from 5 p.m.” Supermarkets are excluded.

Schools should remain open for the time being. However, students aged ten and over must wear a face mask when they are not in their place. The 1.5 meter distance rule is being extended to cinemas, theaters and restaurants. This means that they can receive fewer visitors. The mask requirement will apply there again. There must be a turning point, said Rutte.

As of November 18th, 80.3% of Netherlands adults were fully inoculated against COVID-19.

 Despite the high COVID-19 inoculation rate, that hasn’t slowed the most severe outbreak the nation has seen yet during the “pandemic.”

 On November 24th, the Netherlands reported a record-high 23,709 daily cases.

 For reference, the highest number of daily cases in the Netherlands during 2020 was 13,032 (12/30).

 Does that mean the experimental injections have worked to stop the spread of the virus?

 The answer is clearly, no. 

 Similar to other European nations, the Netherlands will once again enter crushing lockdowns. 

How will their citizens respond to these sweeping restrictions and “precautionary” arrests?
