Halsema calls for inquiry over Amsterdam protest
Amsterdam Mayor Femke Halsema has called for an independent investigation into the anti-racism protest on the Dam last week.

Halsema wants an independent investigation into how many people were there and the protest’s potential for spreading coronavirus.
