On 29 April 1943, wildcat strikes broke out in the Netherlands to protest against the Nazi occupation. They started with a walkout at the Stork factory in Hengelo, and quickly spread across the country.

These strike density maps for 30 April and 1 and 2 May are from a report for the Netherlands Institute for War Documentation (P.J. Bouman 1950, De april-mei-stakingen van 1943).

Note that it’s allowed to place your regular bicycle in a dedicated bike share rack.
