Dutch activists picket parliament to protest the Apartheid Wall

As part of the Week Against the Apartheid Wall, some 30 Palestinian solidarity activists in the Netherlands participated in a two-hour picket in front of the parliament in The Hague on November 11. Organized by the Netherlands Palestine Committee (NPK) and the Friends of Palestine, the activists also delivered a petition to the representatives of the parties, calling on them to support Palestinian rights and to end Israeli Apartheid.

The protesters placed their emphasis on the Dutch parliament because the Week Against the Apartheid Wall coincides with the start of the parliamentary debate on foreign affairs, including the Netherlands’ role in the Middle East. As such, in order to call attention to the 60 years of injustice since the Nakba, the NPK also gave the chairperson of the parliament a copy of a book that it put together, entitled “The Destruction of Palestine.” The activists’ aims were to lobby the parliament to support the boycott of Israel, help tear down the Apartheid Wall, and stand up for the Palestinian right to self determination.
