The Amsterdam Court of Appeals ordered prosecutors to bring charges against MP Geert Wilders, claiming that he vilified and incited hatred against Muslims with his video and his speeches.
This persecution sets an extremely bad precedent, thereby threatening our first amendment right to free expression. I have added my endorsement to this petition and I urge you to join the signers in promising a boycott of Dutch products in retaliation for persecuting Wilders. Please sign this petition immediately and forward it to your friends.
To: The Dutch Government
WHEREAS Geert Wilders has exercised his fundamental human right of freedom of expression and spoken out, with facts and evidence, of the threat posed by radical Islam;
WHEREAS certain elements within Islamic communities have threatened a boycott of Dutch goods if Geert Wilders is not punished by the Dutch government for exercising his freedom of expression; and
WHEREAS certain elements in Dutch industry and the Dutch government are suggesting that Geert Wilders be prosecuted civilly or criminally, in order to prevent such a boycott;
IT IS RESOLVED that, in the event that the Dutch government attempts, in any way, to punish or prosecute Geert Wilders, civilly or criminally, for exercising his freedom of expression, the undersigned will initiate a boycott of any and all Dutch goods.
