Six protesters from the Extinction Rebellion activist group were arrested by the police on Sunday.

A few dozen demonstrators held an action at clothing store C&A on the Damrak in Amsterdam.

Police report that four protesters were arrested for trespassing for trespassing into the store.

Two more people were arrested for destruction.

The arrested protesters had plastered the shop with chalk.

The group demonstrated earlier in the day on the Museumplein.

The action at C&A was intended to draw attention to the situation of the Uyghurs in China.

The ethnic minority has long been oppressed by the Chinese government.

According to Extinction Rebellion, the clothing company is one of the textile companies that is guilty of taking clothing, which must be forcibly made by the Uyghurs.

Other brands are also accused of this, human rights organization End Uyghur Forced Labor announced in July.

Extinction Rebellion activists are holding more promotions

The action group holds campaigns throughout the month to draw attention to international issues, such as the climate.

They started 1 September with a jump in the Hofvijver in The Hague in front of the Binnenhof.

On Friday, an action by Extinction Rebellion on the Zuidas was dissolved when about 150 demonstrators had dropped off a crossroads.

Actions are again planned for next week.
