People from across the political spectrum packed into the streets of Amsterdam to protest the Dutch government’s proposed vaccine passes. The demonstration blocked roads in the city center for miles.

Crowds of protesters gathered in Amsterdam’s Dam Square on Sunday for a 7 km (4 mile) march through the city’s canal-lined streets and back to the square, all in protest of the center-right government’s Corona-virus policies.

Video footage showed a seemingly endless column of protesters marching along the route, with some observers claiming that the actual group of demonstrators was up to 3 km (1.8 miles) long.

Protesters claimed that upwards of 100,000 people were there, while local authorities put the attendance at 20,000.

Either way, the city council urged Amsterdammers to stop showing up shortly before the start of the march at midday, saying the city center had become “too busy.”

The focus of the march was on the Dutch government’s plans to make proof of vaccination mandatory to enter restaurants, cafes, museums and other public spaces, as suggested by Health Minister Hugo de Jonge earlier this week.

As such, protesters carried banners decrying “medical apartheid” and complained that vaccine passes “punish” the young and healthy who refuse to be vaccinated, local newspaper Het Parool reported.

Some of the protesters demonstrated against vaccines in general, calling them “poison,” while others came to stump for politicians opposing the so-called ‘vaccine passports’.

Thierry Baudet, leader of the Forum for Democracy (FvD) party marched with the protesters, as did Wybren van Haga of the newly formed libertarian party Belang van Nederland (Dutch Interest).

Bauded claimed after the march that 100,000 people had come out to stand up against the medical dictatorship.

More than just freedom groups were present, with dance music fans, Hare Krishnas, religious organizations, pensioners, anarchists, bikers, former police officers and soldiers all among the crowds.

It’s good that people are pushing back against the coercion passport.

We were there. The main stream media play the numbers down. The police estimated the numbers around 200,000 to 250,000 people.

There were young, old, rich, poor, educated and non-educated people marching side-by-side, in a non-violent march to show the government that this totalitarian regime is unacceptable.

We want back our freedom, our right to free speech, our right to demonstrate.

Good for them! I’ve only been there once but had a great time. Glad to see they are not putting up with this assault on basic freedoms! Yay!
