This is a video from Canada of the anti-war demonstration organized by the Hamilton Coalition to Stop the War and affiliates.
There is a demonstration in the west coastal village of Noordwijk, the Netherlands, right now, against the Afghanistan war. Dutch NOS TV showed images. Also supporters of the PvdA party, part of the government coalition, had brought a party banner to the demonstration.
The demonstration is during the NATO summit in Noordwijk. The demonstration is on the Vuurtorenplein square.
By the way, yesterday knowledgeable Indonesians of the Committee of Dutch Honorary Debts confirmed to me that the Dutch military calling their base in Afghanistan “Poentjak” (Indonesian: puncak) is indeed a reference to the Dutch colonial war of 1945-1949 to strangle the infant Republic of Indonesia, proclaimed on 17 August 1945, at its birth. Dutch forces committed many war crimes during this colonial war.
More specifically, Poentjak used to be the name of a base of the infamous Dutch Captain Raymond Westerling, guilty of killing many unarmed Indonesians in Sulawesi and Java islands. In 1950, after the Dutch government at last had recognized Indonesian independence, Westerling tried a bloody, failed, coup d état in Indonesia. Later, he was involved in an attempt at coup d état against the Dutch government, accusing it of not being hardline enough against Indonesia. Should such a person, such a colonial past, really be honoured? It does not sound positive about what Dutch troops are doing in Afghanistan now; including killing villagers with long distance guns.
