Amsterdam: Firemen will Present Coffin to Amsterdam Mayor in Protest

On June 30th, Amsterdam firefighters will protest once again. They intend to drive a “funeral procession” of fire trucks toward the municipality. There they will present Amsterdam Mayor Eberhard van der Laan with a coffin. In this way, the firemen wish to express fear for their safety and that of Amsterdam citizens due to the announced budget cuts in firefighting services. Several tens out of the present 1,170 jobs are slated to be cut.
