AMSTERDAM (Sputnik) - Thousands of people took to the streets of Amsterdam on Sunday to protest COVID-19 restrictions in the Netherlands, a Sputnik correspondent reported.
The protesters began gathering at the city's Dam Square at 9:00 GMT. Despite the requests from the mayor's office to disperse, the crowd was only swelling in size.
The protesters marched 7 kilometres through the city, finishing at the Dam Square at 13:00 GMT.
The event's organiser was Michel Reijinga, who is responsible for similar protests against COVID-19 restriction in the past.
According to the Dutch public broadcaster NOS, citing the activist, about 60 groups took part in the march.
​In August, the Netherlands announced that starting 20 September, a COVID-19 entry pass system will be used at restaurants, bars, cafes, events and cultural venues where more than 75 people are present.
