Various social media groups are eagerly sharing a call to start riots on the Grote Markt next Wednesday and Friday, recreating what happened last night in Enschede, Eindhoven, Amsterdam and a few other cities

“Demonstration/riots Groningen – Wednesday January 27, 8:30 PM – Groningen city center – Grote Markt.” This is what a social media post reads; a short, but powerful call to insurrection.
SIKKOM reports that another riot is planned for Friday at 6:00. Posting on social media, a person under the username “Michelll” urges Groningers to gather on the Grote Markt to protest against the curfew: “Riots Grunchii!” says the post “Come with as many men as possible, it will be fun. We can’t just let ourselves be known, can we?”
It is unknown yet who is behind these posts, but they have several (Dutch) spelling and grammar mistakes, which probably rules out them being by a RUG or Hanze professor, for example.
Paul Heidanus, spokesman for the police, says he is aware of the posts on social media.
Yesterday several demonstrations against the curfew got completely out of hand. Shops were looted in Eindhoven, a hospital in Enschede was attacked and in Amsterdam the police were pelted with stones.
