I'm reading a series of workshops about the Sixties in Amsterdam .
Now during the reading where the author described some riots in A'Dam in 1848 ,I found this 'proverb' : 'Figthing against the Bierkaai'. I know the dates don't coincide each other
but the author explains how some riots in the Sixties could be already associated at those one in 1848.
And the author explains it in this way: ' ...still is proverbial for taking up a fight against an invincible enemy'.
But I'd like having a little more of explainations.
Is there anyone who can help me?
Thank you very much,
