The Egg Riots in Leiden: Pupils capture the Chicken Bridge

The Egg Riots in Leiden: Pupils capture the Chicken Bridge
This bridge is really called the Chicken Bridge.

Pupils from secondary schools all over the Netherlands were protesting about the obligation for schools to keep pupils occupied at school for 1040 hours every year.

Today the protest turned a bit rioty: eggs were thrown. Eggs were the throwing object of choice at most of the protests.
