DUTCH COFFEE SHOPS UNDER SIEGE
BY RIGHT WING GOVERNMENT
VIDEO REPORT DESCRIPTION
May 2011 - The right-wing minority
administration of the Netherlands launched a
major attack on one of the nation's best
known cultural features: the coffee shop.
The administration wants to introduce a club
pass for the coffee shops, which can only be
obtained by local residents. Tourists and
other foreigners will no longer have legal
entrance into the coffee shops, which will
re-introduce street sales.
