UM students file complaint against Wilders

MAASTRICHT. “No to Geert Wilders,” shout a group of students who are on their way to the Maastricht police station Friday afternoon. They want to file a complaint of discrimination against the PVV leader. During a speech on the evening of the local elections, Wilders asked his audience whether they wanted more or fewer Moroccans. The audience chanted “fewer, fewer, fewer”, to which Wilders replied: “Then we will get that sorted.” Since then people throughout the whole country have been filing official complaints against him.

UCM students Robin Vlieger and Marlien van Liempt set up the action in Maastricht. “This has angered me for some time now,” said Van Liempt. “We talked about it with each other on Facebook and that is how we came up with the idea.” In the end, 32 students filed a complaint. “We received a lot of positive reactions, from people who simply felt that it was a great idea to people who said that it gave them hope.”

Whether these complaints will actually lead to a prosecution, Van Liempt cannot say. “Whether it is within the law or not, I don’t know, but it is at least a chance to send a clear message. We must show as students that we will not put up with this.”
