ROTTERDAM – Demonstrators from a group called Stop Deportations chained themselves to the entrance gate of the deportation centre at Rotterdam Airport on Friday morning.

The group and the airport have both reported this. It is two years ago today that 11 detainees died in a fire at the justice department's detention centre at Schiphol.

The protest in Rotterdam started just before 6 am today. The Marechaussee forcibly removed a number of demonstrators who were blocking the entrance to the centre. Other members of the group who have chained themselves to another gate are being left there for the time being.
