Sit-in demonstration tomorrow in Maastricht city park
A Black Lives Matter demonstration will be organized in Maastricht tomorrow. The protest against racism and police brutality starts at 2 p.m. in city park De Griend. The organization first wanted to hold the demonstration at the Vrijthof, but there is not enough space to keep 1.5 meters between each other during a large influx.

As before, a sit-in is organized in Utrecht, where attendees are asked to sit on the floor. The organization will draw circles where people can sit, so that the one and a half measure can be maintained. Protesters are also asked to wear face masks.

A (small) demonstration was also held in Maastricht last Monday. About a hundred people then protested on the Markt.
