Dozens of Eindhoven activists travelled to Amsterdam Sunday. There they joined the Climate March.
In Eindhoven, one group of about 25 protesters boarded a train early Sunday morning. Other activists travelled from all corners of the country; some by train others by coaches. All protesters gathered at the Dam Square.
From the Dam Square this Amsterdam Climate March wound through the city centre; ending at the Museum Plein. The initiative for this protest march came from Friends of the Earth, FNV, Greenpeace and Oxfam Novib and similar organisations.
The organisations and activists call on the Dutch and other governments, to take measures to limit and strongly reduce damage to nature and the environment. Activists also believe companies should contribute far more towards a sustainable world, than is now the case.
The march made headlines in Dutch media. The crowd was estimated to number between 35,000 to 40,000 participants. This despite the bad weather and problems with train-connections.
