Provo was a Dutch counterculture movement active in the 1960s, focused on provoking violent responses from authorities using non-violent methods. It was founded on May 25, 1965, by anti-smoking activist Robert Jasper Grootvelt and anarchists Roel van Duijn and Rob Stolk. It disbanded just two years later, on May 13, 1967. It was preceded by the Nozem subculture and followed by the hippie movement.
