Individuals in Amsterdam are advised to anticipate increased security surrounding the march as well as transportation disruptions. Additionally, although no specific threats have been reported, Europe remains subject to an underlying threat of terrorism; remain vigilant and report any suspicious objects or behavior to the authorities.
