Netherlands’ Prime Minister Mark Rutte has blasted the anti-Covid protesters fighting with police as “idiots” who are using violence under the guise of dissatisfaction.

“As a prime minister, as a liberal I will always defend demonstrations in this country as part of our democracy, of our rule of law. But what I will never accept is idiots who under the guise of ‘we are dissatisfied’ use pure violence against people who are working every day to keep this country safe,” Rutte said.

He added that the scenes seen over the past few days were “nothing but pure violence”.

Netherlands have reintroduced partial lockdown last week to fight the surge in COVID cases. That prompted another wave of demonstrations in major cities including the Hague and Rotterdam with dozens arrested and several police officers injured.
