THE HAGUE – On the eve of the Netherlands' general election, some 2,000 people gathered in The Hague on Sunday to protest against the government and its tough coronavirus lockdown.

Several people carried a homemade banner emblazoned with the text in Dutch “Love & Freedom: No Dictatorship,” many others carried yellow umbrellas.

Another demonstrator carried a makeshift set of stocks with a photo of Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s head stuck in the middle and a sign saying: “If you love the Netherlands, vote them out.” A heavy police presence ringed the park where the demonstrators gathered, and police tweeted before the scheduled start of the event that the maximum number of participants already had been reached.
