Riot police cleared an illegal demonstration from Amsterdam’s Museumplein on Sunday, but there was no repeat of the violence of the previous two weekends.
The demonstration, for the third Sunday in a row, was called by people opposed to the coronavirus measures and the curfew, but had been banned by city officials.
Some 600 people had gathered for the protest, which was broken up by police at around 4pm. Earlier in the afternoon, police had arrested 30 people who had gathered on the nearby Valeriusplein on the ground that they posed ‘a risk to public order.’
In Apeldoorn, a demonstration by several hundred people ended peacefully when police ordered them to go home. There were four arrests in Apeldoorn, three for carrying offensive weapons.
