Greenpeace is damaging Holland's reputation, says the PVV
Monday 21 November 2011
Environmental organisation Greenpeace has gone too far so often that the government should look into expelling it from the Netherlands, Richard de Mos, an MP for the populist PVV, says in Monday’s Telegraaf.
Greenpeace’s international headquarters in Amsterdam should be closed down, because its presence is damaging the Netherlands’ reputation abroad, De Mos told the paper.
The ruling VVD Liberals are also critical of the organisation’s performance and want to find out if government subsidies and payouts from the Postcode lottery can be scrapped if Greenpeace breaks the law, the Telegraaf says.
Last month, the paper claimed Greenpeace may have put the public at risk with an anti-nuclear train stunt.
