At least 200 taxi drivers took part in a demonstration close to the Dutch parliament on Wednesday in protest at the private car taxi service Uberpop.
The drivers are angry at what they say is the lack of government will to stop Uberpop drivers offering taxi services without licences and at low prices.
Drivers came to The Hague from Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht, where Uberpop is about to start operating, news agency ANP says.
Last weekend, five Uberpop drivers were caught by transport ministry inspectors, resulting in a €50,000 fine for the company.
Last year, Dutch courts ruled the service is illegal but Uber has lodged an appeal.
