Evicted asylum seekers move into Amsterdam Vondelpark

As many as seventy failed asylum seekers, evicted from their long-time squat in Amsterdam, entered the city’s Vondelpark late Wednesday afternoon. It is not known if they plan to pitch tents or spend the night in the park, a spokesman said.

After they were evicted, some of the undocumented aliens tried to set up a tent camp on a construction site in Amsterdam Zuid, which the city opposed.

“Walked to the Vondelpark where we are now chilling a bit after another day of action, interviews and demonstrating,” a representative wrote on the Facebook page for the group. “If people want to join after their work – very welcome!”…

    That ‘yellow hand’ looks A LOT like the MB sign from Egypt a little while back.
    I wonder of there is a connection?

    • Frau Katze

      It does look similar. Could be a connection.

      It is. You can see the “r4bia”. And that is the Egyptian flag in the background. So the poor dears are MB types who found that Egypt was getting a little frosty. grrr….

        Never mind. Duh.

        But would be no surprise if there was a connection,

    They could really get everybody’s attention if they camped out in the Red Light district.

    What did Dutch authorities think the moochers would do? Eviction is not enough; they need to be deported.

    Thank goodness that doesn’t happen here. Of course that is because they get the public housing before Canadians who have been on the waiting list for over a decade!

    • lolwut?

      Yup and so called “Housing advocates” remain silent about it.
