Demonstration for culture

On November 20 more than 100.000 people in 70 cities in the Netherlands raised their voices during the demonstration 'Nederland Schreeuwt om Cultuur' (The Netherlands Screams for Culture). This action is organized to express their disagreement with the disproportionate plans of the Dutch cabinet to cut down the budgets for the arts and culture.

Flag of Compassion is also present in Amsterdam. The Flags are carried by representatives from the visual art sector.
