A student group has called for a demonstration in The Hague on Friday, December 20, to denounce the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) which was implemented in India on December 11. Participants plan to gather to gather from 11:00 to 13:00 (local time) in front of the Indian embassy.
A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruption are likely in the vicinity of the demonstration.
The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) seeks to provide Indian citizenship to non-Muslim minorities fleeing religious persecution in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. Opponents claim that the legislation is in violation of the constitution, which prohibits religious discrimination against citizens.
Individuals in The Hague are advised to monitor developments, avoid all demonstrations, anticipate transportation disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
