Legal Team

From Sunday March 23 until Tuesday March 24, there will be a permanent arrest support group active in order to support the actions around the NSS. We can be reached at 0031 631198059 or at utrecht@arrestantengroep.org. We remain in contact with the lawyers available for these days. They are Ineke van den Brûle and Marieke Lindhout from the lawyers' office Prinsegracht 53 in The Hague. You can ask for them if you are taken into custody.

Transport and Borders

The Dutch borders will have increased control during this period to check for “potentially violent groups that threaten the security of the summit”. So be aware while crossing: they will do “random” checks based on their surveillance.

Inside the Netherlands, transport between The Hague and Amsterdam is easy with regular trains taking about 50 min.
