A racist mob broke through the police line outside the council building and attacked the building and police officers with rocks, bottles and firebombs.
This 16 December 2015 video is about the local council meeting.
Lourens van Bruchem is local councillor of the SGP (a fundamentalist Protestant Christian party). He also thinks that the violent attackers were not local people.
The Dutch neo-nazi party Nederlandse Volksunie, much involved in anti-refugee actions elsewhere, and whose Internet site has expressions of sympathy with the Geldermalsen rioters, including by the party leader, may have been involved in this; as they admitted.
Racists have also threatened the life of the mayor, Ms Miranda de Vries. Both Ms de Vries and Mr van Bruchem have notified police about the threats to murder them.
