Dutch rally against health pass in Amsterdam again
Tens of thousands marched through Amsterdam to protest against the Dutch government's Coronavirus pass this weekend.

Demonstrators marched through central Amsterdam on Sunday in protest against the Coronavirus measures, despite the wet weather. The demonstration began on Dam square in the centre of the Dutch capital before moving off for a five kilometre protest march.
The protest attracted a wide range of people, from hippies to couples with children, men in army clothing and conservative political parties. They carried banners and placards stating that “QR is going too far” and “unvaccinated lives matters”.
At one point, an imitation gallows could be seen and this was blown out of proportion by the mainstream media and described as “direct threats to Health Minister Hugo de Jonge”. Police said later they were “investigating the threats”. The cartel media pretended to be terribly upset because someone had brought a gallows to the Dam demonstration. But they never asked the maker of the gallows what it was intended for and his explanation was curiously completely ignored.
The demonstration is the second to be held in the capital in protest against the introduction of the controversial health pass. A march in early September attracted the same number of disgruntled Dutch citizens.

The gallows were never intended as an instrument of “we want to hang members of the cabinet with this”. In fact, the maker of the imitation wooden structure had given regional Dutch broadcaster Omroep On! – before there was any problem – an explanation.
“We as a population, we are currently hanging in that noose. We have to wait for someone to slap the horse, and then we die,” said the man in question. In other words, it was not intended at all as the media would have us believe.
De media hebben weer wat gevonden om hun eeuwige, voorspelbare, doodsaaie afschuw, walging, weerzin etc, te kunnen uitspreken over de fantastische Amsterdamse demonstratie vandaag met meer dan 100k mensen (pardon: “enkele duizenden” 🤡).https://t.co/iWoEKuMRki

As Thierry Baudet rightly stated on Twitter, this was a typical response in bad faith from the mainstream media cartel. Everything is used to score virtue points and dismiss opponents of the misguided policy of the Rutte III cabinet as extremists, he said. “They do this over and over. And apparently there are still people who fall for it. Otherwise they would have stopped doing it.”
According to Baudet, the date for the Great Reset is 15 October.
On social media, Baudet also mocked the reports in the cartel media about the massive Amsterdam demonstration. He said there had been more than 100 000 people but only “several thousands” were acknowledged.
Dutch Deputy Finance Minister Mona Keijzer was recently fired by Prime Minister Mark Rutte after she called the country’s vaccine passport “illogical” and said that the Netherlands should “go back to the old normal”.
Those who want to visit bars, cafes, restaurants and other events must now show proof of vaccination against Covid-19 or a negative PCR test. The vaccine pass has been introduced despite mass protests in Amsterdam and ongoing demonstrations against the now mandatory vaccine pass.
In an interview with the Telegraaf, Keijzer said that it was “inexplicable” that the passport was required, as the opening of schools and universities, for example, had not led to an increase in hospital admissions.
“You can take part in a marathon without a vaccine pass, but if you are going to eat a pastry in the lunch room, you have to have it,” she said, adding that she “could no longer explain it logically”.
“If we end up in a society where we have to be afraid of each other if we can not show evidence, you really have to scratch your head and ask yourself: Is this the direction we want to go?”
Keijzer’s comments got her fired from her job within hours. After consulting with his other ministers, Premier Rutte announced that Keijzer would be fired “with immediate effect”. Her comments, he said, were “inconsistent with recent government decisions”.
About 82 percent of adults in the country have now been fully vaccinated, and the number of Covid-19 cases has fallen steadily since July. In her interview, Mona Keijzer tried to point to the high number of vaccinations as an argument for why no vaccine pass was needed. She said that those who develop severe symptoms are now down to a very low level and have been for a long time. “We have to go back to the old normal,” she said.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
