The police intervened during a protest at the reception location for Afghan evacuees at the Harskamp army camp in Ede on Tuesday evening. Initially, about 250 people had come to the reception center. The protest was peaceful early in the evening, a police spokesman said. The police were at the scene all night. According to Omroep Gelderland, slogans were chanted like “own people first” and “Harskamp is ours”. A police spokesperson could not comment on that.

Around 9:30 p.m. it became more restless and about 60 young people did not heed repeated calls to leave. A pile of car tires were set on fire and loud music was played, the spokesman said. The police then chased them out of the area and led them to the town. It was quiet in the area just after 11:00 p.m., but the police stayed.
