De Tribune prosecuted II In summer 1934 a reduction in employment benefits led to riots in Amsterdam, which were extensively reported by De Tribune. The newspaper called for demonstrations, which were bloodily suppressed. Six people died in what were to become known as the 'Jordaan riots'. In summer 1934 Prime Minister Hendrik Colijn went so far as to order the printing presses of De Tribune to be put out of action and later to be confiscated, but De Tribune continued to appear in mimeographed emergency issues.
