Big anti-racism protests in the Netherlands

This is a 4 June 2020 music video by Dutch rappers Bizzey & Akwasi. Their song Geen Wedstrijd is about the police murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis in the USA and about racism in the Netherlands. They ask everyone to donate money to Kick Out Zwarte Piet, one of two organisations which had organised the recent big anti-racism demonstration in Amsterdam.
