Now the Dutch join in

The residents of a small town in a rural part of The Netherlands were told that they were going to house 500 of Merkel's immigrants. Permanent change of identity for the local population. To their credit the residents did not just passively accept their fate - 1000 of them protested at a meeting organised by town officials to explain the plan, with some attempting to storm the town hall.

My hope is that at least some of these residents will now become politically active. One outburst of anger won't change things, what's needed is a longer term commitment to challenging the establishment parties and to changing the political culture and values that currently dominate Western countries.

If you're interested there are some videos of the demonstration here.
