Aruban Mitch Henriquez killed, commemoration in The Hague

Silent march for Mitch Henriquez today

NOS TV writes that today in The Hague was the silent march to commemorate Aruban Mitch Henriquez, killed by police recently:

People participated in the march to support the surviving family and to protest against the violent arrest. Various participants said that police treats people of colour differently from whites, and that Mitch’ arrest is an example of that.

An estimated 200 people were arrested in the course of four nights of protests last week in The Hague. The disturbances began after the death a week ago of a tourist from the Caribbean, Mitch Henriquez, at the hands of police. Henriquez, the 42-year-old father of three children, had been visiting relatives in the Dutch capital and was assaulted by police after leaving a rock concert in the city’s Zuiderpark: here.
