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. The Dam Square protest was widely criticised because protestors were not able to keep 1.5m from each other, particularly towards the centre of the crowd. Halsema wants an independent investigation into how many people were there and the protest’s potential for spreading coronavirus.
