From the WMG Press Release - March 8, 2017
On International Women’s Day (IWD), March 8, 2017, Women's March Global (WMG) announces the launch of its Vote Against Hate campaign – inviting people across the world to stand in solidarity with Women’s March for a United Netherlands, in Amsterdam, ahead of the Dutch elections involving controversial far-right candidate Geert Wilders.
WMG is calling on women’s march organisers across 200 cities in 80 countries to spread the word about its #VoteAgainstHate campaign which launches on Friday March 10 – the day before the Amsterdam march. The campaign aims to highlight the potential impact of the Dutch elections on the world’s political stage and raise awareness about growing right-wing populism in Europe. Wilders has been dubbed by Politico as “the man who invented Trumpism”.
Up to 10,000 people are expected to take to the streets in Amsterdam, on Saturday March 11 – the weekend before the Dutch general elections on March 15 – for the Women’s March for a United Netherlands. Marchers will be campaigning against the electoral rhetoric of division and for a united Netherlands, one that stands for equality, diversity, inclusion, and makes a strong call against racism and sexism.
