THE HAGUE, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- Tens of thousands of people took part in a march through Amsterdam, capital of the Netherlands on Sunday, calling for action to tackle the challenges of climate change.
An estimated 85,000 people participated in the demonstration, according to organizers.
The march started on Dam Square and ended on the Museum Square, both in the center of the Dutch capital. Despite the massive turnout, the march was peaceful.
The turnout, reportedly the largest ever in such events in the Netherlands, exceeded a similar one two years ago in Amsterdam, when 40,000 demonstrators participated, according to reports of Dutch media.
