Retrospective political café on Curaçao refugee crisis

On 3 November, the FMS organised a political café to draw attention to the refugee crisis in Curaçao. A topic that remains under-reported in the media but remains undiminishedly relevant. Together with Ieteke Witteveen (Human Rights Defense Curaçao) , Dr Natalie Dietrich Jones (SALISES) and Marieke Koekkoek (VOLT), moderator Emiel Bongaerts (FMS) discussed, among other things, human rights violations and the Dutch role in the issue.

In the roundtable discussion, many interesting perspectives from our guests passed by, addressing the issue of the refugee crisis in Curaçao. For instance, they discussed how Curaçao is still a forgotten part within the kingdom and the importance for the Dutch parliament to keep fighting for more visibility for Curaçao's refugee crisis.
