THE HAGUE (Reuters) – Dutch police on Saturday used water cannon to clear several hundred people blocking a major highway in The Hague to protest government subsidies for the fossil fuel industry.
“All protesters who were blocking the A12 (highway) have been removed,” police said in a statement.
Led by Extinction Rebellion, protesters have vowed to continue blocking the highway every day until policy is changed. Saturday was the 8th consecutive day of protests.
