PROVO tourists for Juliana

Provo was an "anarchistic" movement which lasted only a couple of years and within the boundaries of the Netherlands and Belgium. The street Happenings and provoking the police were their main tactics. The police showed no tolerance and attacked in every chance, most of their happenings were ending into riots.
So lets take a look at a small paragraph from the book Provo, Amsterdam's anarchist revolt.
"Yet another section of Amsterdam bureaucracy sough to profit from the international interest in the Provos. The VVV, the Dutch national tourist office, published a brochure entitled See the Provos, which was distributed in local hotels. Interested tourists were driven to Enkhuizen, a picturesque 17th-century port an hour north from Amsterdam, where for a fee they were provoked by goverment-sanctioned "Provos"."
