Thousands of protesters gathered on Wednesday, June 10, at a park in the capital Amsterdam in support of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. The demonstration reportedly remained peaceful in nature, with participants mainly observing current social distancing measures in place amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. The demonstration is the latest in a series of protests seen across Dutch cities following the police-related death of George Floyd in the United States on May 25.
Further associated protests and associated disruptions are likely in the near term.
Individuals in Amsterdam are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized transportation disruptions, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
