Maastricht: Police Fight against Extreme Left-Wing Demonstrators

Yesterday afternoon police on horseback together with a special unit fought against extreme left wing demonstrators in Maastricht. Three hundred supporters, mainly Flemish, of the extreme right Voorpost movement demonstrated on the Maas river bank against the town’s pro-drug tolerance policy. On the opposite bank a similar number of extreme leftists marched against the right wing demonstrators. When the leftists tried to cross over a bridge they found the police on their way. Peter Visser, a regional politician of the extreme left Socialist Party, claimed that the trouble was caused by hooligan-fans of the local MVV soccer club.
