Security Message for U.S. Citizens: February 16 Demonstration in The Hague

The Dutch police informed the U.S. Embassy in The Hague of a demonstration scheduled to take place on the Lange Voorhout side of the Embassy on Thursday, February 16, 2017 from 1600-1730. 

The demonstration is in opposition to the arrest in Germany of a member of the (Turkish) Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party/Front (DHKP/C).

Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence.  You should avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
