The University of Utrecht has its own academic section for human rights research and expertise: it is called the Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM) and they host various workshops, lectures, and seminars. In 2016, this human rights section hosted the AHRI conference. You might expect that an academic institution that believes in human...Lees verder

The pamphlet (bigger version below). Doorbraak has taken the initiative to form a block of jobless and flex workers during the May 1 demonstration of the trade union FNV. The May 1 celebration of the trade union is all about “real jobs”. With this separate block, we want to make it clear that there are also “real” jobless and...Lees verder
Petition. C’est ridicule. Avaaz fait circuler une pétition pour remercier le “peuple néerlandais” (quel que soit le sens de ce mot) pour “avoir choisi l’espoir, l’unité et le dialogue contre la haine, la peur et la vieille rhétorique fasciste”. Ils prétendent même que “en rejetant Geert Wilders, vous avez contribué à arrêter partout l’ascension de...Lees verder
