A Follow-Up Demo In Rotterdam?

One of my Dutch contacts just skyped me to pass on an unconfirmed rumor that has been flying around Amsterdam this evening.

There is talk that the European Freedom Initiative (EFI) is planning a follow-up to today’s demonstration in Amsterdam. The proposed event will take place in Rotterdam in honor of Pim Fortuyn, on the anniversary of his assassination (which was on May 6, 2002).

My contact remarked that there is an intense rivalry between the football supporters of Rotterdam and those of Amsterdam. As noted earlier today, the “hooligans” of the AFCA/Ajax football club were prominent among the “anti-fascists” who violently attacked the EDL near the Isolatorweg railway station in Amsterdam.

If I understand it correctly, the members of Ajax hate the Rotterdam supporters almost as much as they do the EDL. What all this has to do with the EFI demonstration is not clear, however.

yes, you really should hope the new EDL mates of Feyenoord show up, espacily since their signature chant is "hamas, Hamas, all jews to the gas"
dont think that will strenghten your supossed message much
