Event

Members of the Farmers Defence Force group gathered in The Hague from across the country on Tuesday, November 17, to protest the Dutch government's policies to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. Traffic was disrupted as they drove tractors towards the city center. Reports indicate that authorities have directed activists to park their tractors on Benoordenhoutsweg/N44 Highway and march to the Koekamp where a demonstration is set to take place. At 12:30 (local time) activists will reportedly proceed in convoy to the Central Bureau of Food Trade in the Leidschendam area for a rally and speeches, likely to continue until at least 15:00. The rally is expected to be well-attended.

A heightened security presence is likely in the vicinity of protest sites. An associated disruption to transportation and business is likely while protests are ongoing. Further protests are likely over the near to medium term.

Advice

Those in The Hague are advised to monitor local media in order to stay up to date with developments relating to the demonstrations and any associated disruption. Travelers are advised to avoid all demonstrations in order to minimize the risk of exposure to potential incidental violence, opportunistic crime, and crowd control measures by the police.
