A demonstration by action group Code Rood in Farmsum, Groningen, again came to a clash with the police on Wednesday evening. The police again used batons to keep activists away from the NAM facility's fence, something the police later said they regretted. According to the police, batons should not have been used, but they were due to a communication error, NOS reports.
Angry students from the Earth- and Life Sciences faculty at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam staged a noise protest at their faculty on Wednesday morning.
The protest comes from the student group Actiegroep Titanic, who are opposing austerity plans from the directors of the university. They are concerned about a loss of quality.
