The demonstration was held in Amsterdam's Museum Square, and Mayor Femke Halsema designated the area as a "high-risk zone" to give police the power to frisk people for weapons.

Riot police on horseback also attempted to clear the demonstrators.

Last Sunday, protesters clashed with riot police on horseback on the square, leading to the detention of 143 people.
