Protesting asylum seekers moved out of the Hague
The asylum seekers who protested against the poor living conditions in the emergency shelter in The Hague on Thursday, have been relocated to another location outside the city. The Hague Mayor Jozias van Aartsen asked the COA, the central agency for the reception of asylum seekers in the Netherlands, to relocate the refugees to another shelter, the Telegraaf reports. The COA agreed. The asylum seekers in question spent Wednesday night outside and protested for most of Thursday. They were unhappy about the lack of privacy, too few showers and too few toilets in the former Social Affairs building, where the emergency shelter was located.
