Macron was attacked in the Netherlands

| Last update :

French President Emmanuel Macron, who is on an official visit to the Netherlands, was once again the target of protests. As a demonstrator was running towards Macron at full speed, he was blocked at the last moment by the security forces.

Protests against French President Emmanuel Macron continue during his visit to the Netherlands.

Macron, who came to the capital Amsterdam after The Hague, was protested when he came to the Quantum Gases and Quantum Information Laboratory of the University of Amsterdam.

The protester ran towards Macron, who was greeted at the door of the building where the laboratory was located. The protester, who was blocked by the security forces before he could reach Macron, was detained. Macron resumed his visit after the protest.

Macron is scheduled to meet with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte later in the day and visit an exhibition of paintings by Johannes Vermeer at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.


Macron, who made the opening speech of the event organized by the Nexus Institute at the Amare Theater in The Hague yesterday, was interrupted by the demonstrators.

The demonstrators said, "Where is the French democracy? When did we lose it?" he shouted, unfurling a banner that read "Violence and hypocrisy."

Macron, whose speech was interrupted, returned to the balcony where the demonstrators were, and replied, "If you give me some time, I can answer this question."

Security guards intervened quickly and took the demonstrators out of the hall.
