This is Bennie Volkens, a blind organ grinder in front of the New Church at Dam square in Amsterdam. He is there for more than 25 years always in the same place. In December 2010 he was suddenly arrested by police because he had no licence and had a knife in his pocket. He was given a ticket of 235 euro. The public opinion was furious about this. He does no harm, makes no noise and everybody knows him. Police said they had to execute new rules for public outings at Dam square. After a lot of protests and actions of Amsterdam people the city counsel made a rare exception for him and he is allowed to grind his organ again at the same place.
