New protest website from anti-immigration party
Friday 03 August 2012
Geert Wilders' anti-immigration party PVV has launched a website where people can protest against European Union civil servants and politicians who earn too much.
Visitors to stopdeeuropesezakkenvullers.nl (stop the European profiteers) can click on a button to show they agree with the website's standpoint.
The PVV says recent research by a Belgian tv programme showed that a newly-appointed civil servant earns €4,676 per month and a European commissioner €27,000.
The party plans to hand the results to prime minister Mark Rutte and European council president Herman van Rompuy at the EU top in October.
The website is only available in Dutch.
