Another successful anti-PEGIDA protest in the Netherlands today. The day started with the friendly anti-demonstration at an earlier time and a different spot than the PEGIDA demonstration, with about a thousand attendees listening to music and speeches by several organizations and politicians. 

Afterwards many of those present there went to the location of the PEGIDA demo, where they were joined by other antifascists who weren’t that interested in the politicians’ speeches. Turns out the original place PEGIDA had been appointed to use had been closed off because of a suspicious package (which turned out to contain some fireworks), so they had to make do with a small spot on the other side of the building. In this new spot the antifascists could get quite close to them and after a large group of antifascists almost broke through police lines the racists were forced away from the small backup square and onto a bridge. There the around 200 racists, including a large number of imported nazis from Germany, Poland and Belgium stood around for about an hour and a half, before being herded into buses by the cops because they couldn’t guarantee their safety.

There were a number of arrests (around 20) of antifascists and many people hit by the cops, who charged into the counter protest on horseback.

So in the end the antifascists held a nice rally and outnumbered the fascists by a large number, while the fascists had to move their rally to a different place, had to be moved from there for their safety as well, couldn’t hold their speeches because they had to leave their PA system behind, and were bused off more than an hour earlier than they had planned to end their demonstration.

12/6/2016 Daily Report

Overall, today went really well:

  • I got the light fixtures in my kitchen switched over to LED with minimal difficulty.
  • I got my pretty xmas LED lights put up inside that plastic covering also, which looks super cool!
  • I made some progress on my year-end book work
  • I went to the mall and walked around so I could get my 10k steps
  • I walked around my house while I was on the phone also, so fitbit gave me credit for 2 walks today. Yes – I walk pretty fast when I’m on the phone actually, just round and round the living room, dining room, and family room.
  • I didn’t count either of those toward Walking to Mordor though.
  • It’s been rainy and cold and horrible outside today, thus the mall walk.
  • It’s supposed to be cold and windy tomorrow, but hoping for some sun so I can get a walk outside.
  • I watched 2 episodes of Supernatural tonight; that brings me to Episode #3. haha! Long way to go, but that’s fine. Don’t want to really get caught up and have to wait for new seasons or anything! I think they are still making new ones … right?
  • When I was at the store today, one cashier said to another, “I just found out that sports thing is tomorrow.”  YES! THAT ‘SPORTS THING’ IS TOMORROW!  Go Broncos!
