XR Netherlands Locks down for A Hot ING Summer Tour

After 6 hours, Police were able to disperse 10 Extinction Rebellion members in Stad, the Netherlands. The group had locked down at the ING bank, with demands to cut ties with fossil fuels. Six had made a ring using concrete tubing and lockdown devices that could not be removed easily. Finally, the police began to use tools to break down their devices. The police chose not to arrest them, as the threat was reduced once the devices were removed.
