Netherlands: Thousands rally in Nelson Mandela Park as BLM protests continue

Thousands of demonstrators filled Amsterdam's Nelson Mandela Park on Wednesday, to protest racism and brutality one day after George Floyd's funeral in Houston. According to local reports, at least 18,000 protesters had been expected to attend. Many held signs and listened to activists speaking on stage, while they maintained social distancing and wore protective masks. Protesters cheered and applauded throughout the event. The rally was held in the neighbourhood of Bijlmer, known for being multicultural and a place lived by different communities. Nearly 18,000 spots were marked in the venue to allow people to keep the recommended safety distance, following a similar protest in the city centre which drew many last week.
