Amsterdam – At a demonstration in Amsterdam last Saturday, on one of the banners eas written “Stop Rothschild’s silver sale” ( “Stop Rothschild’s koop zilver”). To the Dutch Central Bank, a demonstrator stated: “we are overtaking the Rothschild’s, our oppressors, our dictators, the people who are keeping the world under control (…) We are only here as slaves”.

A further explanation about who the Rothschild’s are exactly, or what they still do today, was not given.

The use of the name of the old banking family as a symbol for oppression and the exercise of power behind the scenes thus has an antisemitic undertone.
