According to a report from China View, On Nov. 16, Dutch police ended the blockade of a Rotterdam dock by Greenpeace which was trying to stop the construction of a coal-fired plant. Dutch police boarded the two ships of the environmental group, which had blocked the dock to prevent ships carrying coal from entering the port earlier that day. The two ships were brought to the quayside, where they were put under embargo. The captains were arrested, but the protesters were released.
