Hundreds march in Netherlands against racism, discrimination


AMSTERDAM : Hundreds of people in the Netherlands held a rally against racism and discrimination on Saturday.

The protest, organized by March 21 Committee, took place at Dam Square in Amsterdam with the attendance of people from different ethnic backgrounds.


They chanted slogans against racism, Islamophobia, and discrimination, while also criticizing Israel’s “apartheid policy” against Palestinians, suspension of education for women in Afghanistan, and killing of Mahsa Amini in Iran.

Later, the crowd marched to the Dockworker Statue, located outside of the Portuguese Synagogue in the Dutch capital.

Dockworker Statue represents the Dutch dockworker who went on strike on Feb. 25, 1941, to protest the Nazi violence against Jews during World War II. — AA
