Physical Violence among Animal Activists

Two groups of activists in Zaandam have severely beaten each other up. When seven people belonging to the MDTB group protested against a circus performance with animals, 25 members of the action group Respect for Animals attacked them. The police arrested two people. There are speculations that the background for the fight is political. MDTB is considered a right nationalist movement while Respect for Animals is seen as being extreme leftist.
