Demonstrators gathered in The Hague, Netherlands, protested against the provisional Dutch government three days before the elections due to the Covid-19 measures, especially the curfew.
Mounted and armored police intervened the demonstrators with police dogs, tear gas and pressurized water. The demonstrators carried signs that read “Love and Freedom: No to Dictatorship”.
Dutch police said in a statement on Twitter that the demonstration was unauthorized and intervened after the group refused to leave the area.
It was stated that the train services coming to The Hague city were temporarily suspended on the grounds that the maximum number of people that could be found in the area was reached and one person was detained.
In the Netherlands, police have harshly intervened in protests and detained hundreds of demonstrators since January 23, when curfews to combat Covid-19 began.
While the protests continue before the parliamentary elections to be held between 15-17 March in the Netherlands, a total of 37 parties will participate in the elections.
