Den Haag working with groups for Sept 20 mass protest
by Maxime Zech
The municipality of The Hague is coming together with the police to gain an overview of the scope of the demonstrations planned for the 20th of September on the Malieveld. To do this, the authorities will meet with the organizers of the demonstrations, the municipality announces on Monday.
After The Hague's Mayor Jozias van Aartsen decided earlier that there would be no demonstrations in The Hague's residential neighborhoods for the coming months, groups have designated the Malieveld, essentially an open field close to the train station, as the new location.
The decision was made in an effort to avoid irregularities and disruptions to residents. The meetings will now be held to give the city's authorities an idea of what the organizations exactly have planned for the coming demonstrations, to make sure these do not get out of hand.
