Wilders demonstrates at Turkish Embassy
The street was cordoned off and there was a lot of police and international press. Also was a group of supporters of the anti-Islamic grouping Pegida on the leg.
Wilders and some of his (junior) Chamber members, including Martin Bosma and Vicky M, find that the Cabinet is not clear enough against Turkey. "Rutte should have said: ' you are persona non grata until after the referendum" ', according to Wilders.
Wilders showcased short, but spoke extensively with the press. He showed a banner with in Turkish the call to the Turkish Government to stay away from Netherlands. Wilders does not want a "dictatorial regime" in Netherlands campaign. If Turkish ministers, then he wants to that the Turkish Ambassador is expelled.
The protest action was directed at the campaign that Turkish ministers under more in Netherlands want to carry for a referendum in april that the president Recep Tayyip Erdogan should give more power. The Turkish Government wants to especially encourage the Turkish community in Netherlands for a stronger position of Erdogan.
The Dutch Government is against such Turkish demonstrations in our country. The Turkish Foreign Minister MevlÃ¼t Cavusoglu will campaign on 11 March in Rotterdam. Also in Germany, the Government is totally against this kind of meetings.
