Satudarah MC is a one-percenter motorcycle club and an alleged organized crime syndicate[5] that was founded in Moordrecht in the Netherlands in 1990.[6] Satudarah MC has 44 chapters throughout the Netherlands [7] and recently opened up new chapters in Belgium, Spain, Indonesia, Malaysia, Denmark, Sweden, Germany and Norway.[8][9][10][4][11] Satudarah MC differs from most other outlaw motorcycle gangs in the fact that it welcomes all races into its club. The ethnic makeup of the club is primarily Ambonese and Dutch, but recently more and more members from Surinamese, Dutch Antillean, Moroccan and Turkish origins have joined its ranks.[12]

Criminal activities[edit]

Members of Satudarah MC are frequently brought into connection with drug trafficking, murder, extortion and weapon trafficking.[13] Satudarah MC is being thought of as extremely violent and ruthless, more so than the Hells Angels in the Netherlands.[14] Satudarah MC maintains a close relation with the Bandidos Motorcycle Club in Germany (which is primarily composed of ethnic Turks in Germany).[15] The Bandidos are sworn enemies of the Hells Angels. Satudarah MC is bigger than the Hells Angels in the Netherlands and they seek to take over the control of organized crime.[16]
