A painful experience for LC reporter Arodi Buitenwerf, who was present for this newspaper at the Kick Out Zwarte Piet demonstration in Leeuwarden. During an interview with a KOZP demonstrator, he is struck by a hard object that is flung blindly into the box of demonstrators from the audience.
The video shows how a massive object, possibly a lump of marzipan, hits the reporter in full face during a question about police protection that was needed to get the KOZP protesters safe from Leeuwarden. He is left with a bleeding wound, but quickly recovers and then completes the interview unperturbed.
The group responsible for the wild smuggling has since apologized. Although he is still troubled by the blow, the stocking is finished for Buitenwerf. ,, It was a 'blind person', but of course a shock. As a journalist you always run a self-selected risk in such events, so you won't hear from me about it. This is the reality nowadays at Sinterklaasintocht. That is sad, but also the reason that I was there. "
