Many cities in the Netherlands have banned the use of fireworks on New Year's Eve. Still, a lot of people travel across the border to acquire fireworks, either for personal use or for (illegal) distribution. When these people run into law enforcement, tensions tend to rise. That's what happened on the last evening of 2022 on Dam Square, Amsterdam. But when you add a protest in support of the Syrian opposition into the mix, things get even more interesting.
