There was a lynching mood when local politicians in the Dutch municipality of Geldermalsen on Wednesday would decide to build a gigantic asylum accommodation for 1,500 asylum seekers.
Instead of making decisions, the politicians were forced to flee head over heels when an angry crowd of 2000 voters broke through the police barricades and chased the politicians away from the town hall.
A total of 2,000 Dutchmen had namely gathered to protest the decision when the situation escalated into violent riots. The police lost control and had to pull back from the barricades and evacuate the politicians, writes Breitbart. In the Dutch municipality, 27,000 people live.
Eleven people were arrested and police were forced to fire several warning shots as the angry protesters overturned barricades and threw things at the police.
Two police officers were slightly injured in the scuffle, reports the state news agency NOS.
The politicians first sought cover upstairs but were eventually evacuated by the police. They reconvened at the police station.
A regional TV station sent images where one can see the politicians having their asylum meeting while the protesters make noise outside the premises. When the police find it increasingly difficult to keep the crowd away, and it is clear to the politicians that they will soon be confronted with the angry crowd, they choose to flee.
