Amsterdam protest: Thousands rally against racism in capital city

The Netherlands questions some of its longtime traditions in light of the Black Lives Matter movement.

More than 10,000 people have rallied in support of the Black Lives Matter movement in the Dutch capital, Amsterdam.

Protesters are highlighting the country’s colonial past, but that is not the only focus of the demonstration.

Activists are demanding an end to systemic racism in the Netherlands.
