Asylum seekers from the Vluchtflat sleep out in central Amsterdam

A group of around 70 asylum seekers from the Vluchtflat, mostly of Somalian origin, slept overnight at the Dam in central Amsterdam on 02/07/13 to bring attention to their situation. They were moved on from the Dam yesterday but slept last night (03/07/13) in front of the city hall. A spokesperson told AT5 they intend to stay there tonight and have no intention of returning to the Vluchflat.

Meanwhile residents at the Vluchtflat have been told that they can stay there until 01/10/13.
