"Yellow vest" protesters staged a demonstration in The Hague on Saturday, January 5, amid a heightened security presence. Similar protests are possible in The Hague and other Dutch cities over the near term; increased security measures and localized traffic disruptions are to be expected near protest sites.


The "yellow vest" movement began in France on November 17 to protest rising fuel prices and a planned fuel tax. Since then, associated demonstrations have been organized in Belgium and the Netherlands.


Individuals in the Netherlands are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution, allow for extra time to reach their destinations when traveling near affected areas, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
