|Erwin Lensink & Republican Resistance in the Netherlands|
|Saturday, 04 February 2012 20:14|
The origins of the orange tradition in Ireland go back to the Orange Royals of the Netherlands. The country is one of many European Monarchies. It is one of the most racist, xenophobia and repressive countries in Europe. Little is known outside the Netherlands about the Dutch Republican Resistance against the oppressive monarchy. Supporters of Republican Sinn Féin in the Netherlands explain the case of Dutch republican prisoner Erwin Lensink.
The Netherlands are known for their cheese, wind-mills, orange soccer supporters, coffee-shops, Dykes, freedom and equality. That is not for today anymore. Our country is now something out of Orwell`s 1984. Fear, rage and hate are the main themes now. The cause of this all can be found years ago on so-called Queens Day 2009. A man called Karst Tates drove his car through the security rings and killed 7 bystanders, before crashing his car against a Royal statue. Before he died on the spot his last words were: ‘Yes I did it in full conscious. Willem Alexander is a fascist, he is a racist, I knew the queen was coming.‘ With an extreme right-wing neo-liberal government and politicians such as Geert Wilders of the xenophobia, right-wing Dutch Freedom Party, the political climate in the Netherlands could not be worse.
On September 21, 2010, the so-called Prince’ Day, the Royal carriage was attacked. It was broadcast live on Dutch television. The man in question was and still is Erwin Lensink, the current Public Enemy Number One. He threw a small luminous element into the direction of the armoured carriage of the Royals. Nobody was hurt. Erwin was arrested. He said it was a planned act of resistance and not an act of madness.
His martyrdom started when his mother died under suspicious circumstances in Germany on May 28, 2008. Her car was burnt out. Erwin was the main suspect! This is now used by the Dutch courts to make him a fool, a mental with no human rights. After his mother’s death Erwin became political active on the internet, mainly against the Royals and in support of Dutch republicanism. He spent a lot of time researching the dark history of the orange Royals in the Netherlands.
The first trial against Erwin was on March 15, 2011 in the Haque. He was accused of insult and G.B.H. (general body harmed). The treatment in prison compared to other prisoners is unreasonable and excessive. The trial can never be fair since in the Netherlands every judge and solicitor has to swear an oath to stay true and loyal to Beatrix von Amsberg (Orange) naming herself Queen of The Netherlands by the Grace of God.
Like you read before it’s very hard to fight the Royals, we call the Oranges. The Royals are above the law. But that does not say you cannot fight the monarchy. More than 200 years of Irish Republican Resistance is the proof of continued struggle and the example for Republicans in the Netherlands. Erwin accused the Royals of those crimes, theft (Wetboek van Strafrecht article 310), high treason (Wetboek van Strafrecht article 92-107a) and fraud (Wetboek van Strafrecht article 326). Done by those actors: Beatrix Wilhelmina Armgard Von Amsberg-Zur Lippe Biesterfeld (31-01-1938, Baarn). Willem Alexander Clause George Ferdinand Von Amsberg (27-04-1967, Utrecht). Maxima Von Amsberg-Zorreguita (27-05-1971, Buenos Aires).
The latter is the daughter of the former Minister of Agriculture, Jorge Zorreguita, under the Videla Junta. Erwin explained, the claim of the crown by the Royal family is unlawful, illegal and unjust. They got all this by rude violation on citizens and human rights. In World War II there was collusion between the oranges and Hitler-Fascism. That’s what concerns Erwin most. His family fought in the Dutch resistance and in May 1940 his grand-father fought at the Grebbeberg front, while the Royals ran away to England. The German family of Prince Bernard Zum Lippe-Biesterfeld served in the German SS. The Royals were safe and sound in London, while more than 2300 Dutch men and women lost their lives in the days of May 1940.
The main media outlets have an unofficial ban on the case. Erwin refuses to take medicine because he says ‘the pills are used to keep me away from my fight against the Queen’. During all the time he is imprisoned, he was treated like a common criminal. He was kept in the High Security Prison, the EBI in Vught. The media call him a communist and even a National-Socialist, but his inspiration came from Dutch socialist resistance hero during WWII Gradus Kobus.
Erwin is still imprisoned. He was arrested in 2010 and for 482 days he is in solitary confinement. Erwin is supported by Dutch Republicans of the organisation Pro Republica (For the Republic).
