Between 3,000-4,000 people gathered in Dam Square last night to celebrate the start of a new year, and the Dutch were having fun the only way they know how — by causing unrest and pissing off the police.
Officers were called to Dam Square after midnight to send people away from Amsterdam’s city centre, reports the NOS.
However, instead of leaving peacefully, some people set off firecrackers and even threw them at the politie. 😱
Several people refused to leave and the police took action against those people through the use of their batons.
However, at around 00:30 AM, most people had already left and by 1 AM, the party was basically over.
In the end though, the police haven’t reported any arrests from the gathering.
