Squatting Ban in the Netherlands

For the last three years a ban on squatting has been in preparation in Dutch politics. A new act that is to ban squatting in the Netherlands passed through parliament on October 15th. Despite strong critique from the High Court, the union of city councils and even the Amsterdam police force, the christian/rightwing majority in The Hague is pushing this law through. Currently the senate still has to vote on the new act, but given the same majority of parties that voted in favor in parliament also exists in the senate, odds are by January 1st 2010 all squats in the Netherlands will be up for eviction.

Clooney has become the go-to guy for comedies with serious purpose, and he is in a good one here.  I thought as I watched this that it is one of my favorite romantic comedies of the year, but it isn’t one at all.  That’s just an element of the story.
