June 10th, Amsterdam. The protest is an initiative of residents of the Bijlmer district, which has the largest population of Afro-Dutch people compared to other city districts in Amsterdam. The black community in the Bijlmer has been a victim of oppression for decades. Racism and police violence has been the subject of frequent attention in the Bijlmer district since the '90s. Again, thousands of people gathered in this area to protest against police brutality and racism.
