Peaceful protest for Arts and Culture broken up by police violence

Peaceful protest is rudely disrupted by riot police.

The peaceful protest and sit-in near parliament in the Hague was violently taken apart by fear mongering riot police out of the Hague and Rotterdam. Police took violent action upon people protesting by non-cooperation sitting in and singing . The The Netherlands turning into a police state, the proof is right here.
“Warning: Do NOT come to the Netherlands, cultural meltdown in progress!”

Translation in chronoligical order:
title: Protest against budget cuts on art and culture. 26 June 2011 Lange Poten, The Hague (parliament)

-“Government, government, everything down the drain” (1:32)
-1 minute of silence for art and culture (1:57)
-“police-state, police-state” (4:36)
-“no violence, no violence” (5:47)
-here there are more people than the 300 reported in the media (6:24)
-the guy arrested here only protested through non-cooperation (7:00)
-“Rutte thanks/ Rutte is scared” Rutte (capitalist liberals) is our PM, a grey mouse like Balkenende (christian-democrats) before him. (7:28)

-National anthem (9:33)

!!Warning!! The following video contains disturbing content.

ID: 09Tripoli417.
Date: 26th of May, 2009.

Summary. Libyan leader Muammar al-Qadhafi told visiting
Commander of U.S. Africa Command General William Ward that Libya
supported the establishment of common African institutions, such
as an African Ministry of Defense, and expressed hope that the
Obama administration would not pursue a policy of military
intervention in Africa, as he felt a U.S. military presence on
the continent could be a trigger for terrorism. Al-Qadhafi said
he hoped President Obama could travel to Libya in early July to
address the African Union summit, as well as meet him at the G-8
conference in Italy later in the month. Al-Qadhafi expressed a
desire for cooperation with U.S. Africa Command in the fields of
counter-terrorism and counter-piracy. Gen. Ward’s meeting with
Foreign Minister Musa Kusa reported septel.

Exempts:
Khadaffi characterized the Chinese approach as soft, the U.S.
as hard, and predicting that China would prevail because it does
not interfere in internal affairs. He criticized what he said
was a U.S. tendency to place military bases near energy sources,
observing that the U.S. did this in the Gulf of Guinea, it would
spark terrorism. Turning to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,
al-Qadhafi questioned what he characterized as U.S. support for
Israel at the expense of Palestine, and advised that it would be
in the best interest of the U.S. to support the Palestinians.

The Leader concluded his remarks by expressing a
desire for President Obama to come to the African Union Summit
in Libya in July, and after that meet him in Italy at the G-8
conference.

He questioned the U.S. military presence in
Djibouti, noting military power would be used by extremists to
justify terror. He then proceeded to identify two sources of
terrorism, Wahabism and Switzerland. Qadhafi stated that the
Swiss banking system was used to fund terrorists.
On the topic of Somali piracy, al-Qadhafi asserted that
“foreign entities” had violated Somalia’s territorial waters.

Leakspin #10Cairo145, human rights & guantanamo detainees

ID: 10Cairo145.
Date: 31st of January, 2010

-In meetings January 13-14, A/S Posner told activists and opposition
politicians that the U.S. is seeking ways to advance human rights and
political participation over the coming 12-18 months.

-Activists urged the U.S. to end a “double standard” on Israeli
human rights violations, close Guantanamo and speak out
against Egypt’s repression.

-Opposition political leaders agreed that prospects for
significant political reform are slim while President Mubarak
remains in office. Most expected Mubarak to be a candidate in
2011, and predicted the military would play a role in succession to
ensure stability.

-Former Presidential candidate Ayman Nour urged A/S Posner to
press the GOE to stop interfering with opposition political activity,
and to allow him to work and travel.

A/S Posner told activists the U.S. is interested in how to
advance human rights in Egypt over the next 12-18 months to improve
people’s lives. He said the U.S. would pursue a traditional human
rights agenda to address police brutality, restrictions on NGOs,
freedom of expression and assembly problems, sectarian tensions,
and the State of Emergency.

Exempts:
Source urged the U.S. to “practice what it preaches” on human rights
by closing the Guantanamo Bay prison. Bahgat called on the U.S. to
end a “double standard on Israeli human rights violations,” and
expressed disappointment with the U.S. position on the Goldstone
Report, which he asserted “makes it harder for us to
cooperate with you” on human rights.

Source complained that the U.S. denied him entry to the Guantanamo
Bay prison to visit a prisoner he was trying to represent.
