Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The Dutch Stop Funding Palestinian NGO | Jan. 17, 2022 |

We strongly condemn the Dutch government's blow to Palestinian civil society | Mondoweiss |

The European Legal Support Center (ELSC) and The Rights Forum strongly condemn the decision of the Dutch government to end its funding to the Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC). This decision was made despite an external investigation that affirmed UAWC's institutional independence and cleared the organisation of the main charges levied against it by the Israeli government and its extremist allies.

UAWC is the largest agricultural development organisation in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt), providing crucial training and supplies to Palestinian farmers and fisherfolk in the West Bank and Gaza.

Decision made by caretaker cabinet of Rutte III, in last days before new ministers in cabinet Rutte IV would be sworn in. Cowards.

Nevertheless, it is best for this group of states to establish a more Democratic EU-9 to further goals of original founders EEC, separate from the Bucharest Nine (B9), Visegrad-4, and Three Seas Initiative.
