Over 8,000 people from all over the Netherlands gathered in Amsterdam on Saturday to voice objections to the free trade agreements CETA, TiSA and TTIP. Farmers, students, parents with children, union members and activists joined in a colorful parade expressing their solidarity with Wallonia, Belgium for recently blocking CETA. SOMO was one of the organizing groups and was thrilled with the huge turnout.
