Event

Farmers in the Netherlands aim to continue their protest action against new nitrogen policies in The Hague on Wednesday, October 30. Supporters are being asked to gather at the Malieveld from 06:00 to 15:00 (local time). The demonstration is likely to cause significant transportation disruptions on roadways near and entering The Hague, particularly early in the morning, amid a heightened security presence. Roadblocks cannot be ruled out. Other related protests are possible in and near urban centers across the country.

Context

The Dutch government has proposed reducing livestock numbers in order to reduce nitrogen emissions. Previous demonstrations caused significant transportation disruption, and the army was deployed ahead of the October 16 protest due to the number of expected participants and tractors, banned from vehicular roadways.

Advice

Individuals in The Hague and its surrounding areas are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests and public gatherings, anticipate transportation disruptions, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
