Submission + - Data Retention Activists Harassed by Authorities

AllYourDataAreBelongToUs writes: Activists who took part in a protest against EU data retention laws on October 11th were harassed by the Dutch authorities, allegedly due to ties with a pro-pedophile political party known as PNVD. According to the article, "the four members of the PNVD agreed to leave without causing a disturbance, however the police followed them to the station until the activists stepped onto the train". Is this the thin end of a wedge to silence concerns over data retention policies in the European Union?
