Provo


Provo
   The Provo movement (a concept coined by criminology pro fessor Wouter Buikhuisen, from the word provocation) consisted of young persons in Amsterdam who protested against authority and order in the 1960s and 1970s. They organized “happenings,” for ex ample, protest demonstrations and fights between members and the police. One of the leading figures in the movement was Roeland Hugo Gerrit (“Roel”) van Duijn (1943– ).
