After chaos caused by farmers driving their tractors on highways during protests last year, a majority in the lower house of Dutch parliament pledged their support to a legislative proposal that will oblige farmers to put license plates on their tractors. The Netherlands is one of the last countries in Europe to regulate this, RTL Nieuws reports.
Dutch parliamentarians are flabbergasted by an incident in safari park Beekse Bergen in Hilarenbeek this weekend. A French family, including a young child, got out of their car to take photos of sunbathing cheetahs and were nearly attacked. Another visitor to the park filmed the incident and posted it on YouTube.
Flags with swastikas on them were planted in the grass of a pasture in the Groningen village of Zuidbroek. As a wind farm is planned in this location, RTV Noord concludes that this is a protest against the wind farm.
The flags read Bezet gebied, Dutch for occupied territory, and Sperrgebiet, a term used by the Nazis during the German occupation to indicate prohibited territory.
