Amsterdam Mayor Authorizes Demonstration of Extreme Rightists

Amsterdam mayor Job Cohen has authorized a demonstration by the extreme right wing Natinalistische Volksbeweging (NVB) in the Western part of Amsterdam on 24 November. The organization wants to demonstrate against the recent disturbances in the Slotervaart neighborhood. A demonstration by the NVB on 23 September had to be stopped by the police after fights broke out with extreme left wing demonstrators. The latter were supported by hooligan fans of the Amsterdam soccer club Ajax.
