After the municipality elections in the Netherlands on Wednesday (March 19 2014) all-time media-magnet, right-wing politician Geert Wilders (PVV- Party for Freedom) managed to create national outrage by asking his followers if they want more or fewer Moroccans in the Netherlands. 
In reaction to their chanting of “Fewer! Fewer! Fewer!” Wilders said “We’ll take care of that!” This was even too much for most of his followers, so that several PVV members have resigned from their seats in the national assembly or the city council (e.g. in the Hague, the PVV was voted the second biggest party). 
Today, March 22, there was a big demonstration, organised by the Comité 21 Maart, through the center of Amsterdam against racism and discrimination, for solidarity, and against Geert Wilders and his statements which many people see as inciting hatred against a specific group of the population, i.e. Moroccans but also Turks, Surinamese people or other foreigners.
It was an amazingly positive atmosphere of Dutch and foreign people, like myself, standing together for a society in which people are no longer discriminated against because of their ethnic background, their sexual orientation, their parents’ country of origin, their gender or anything else. Although racism will not disappear easily, this was a sign that enough is enough and that many Dutch are not willing to accept politicians like Wilders anymore.
