CNN interview regarding refugee rights and the Dutch elections

Coordinator of the PILP, Jelle Klaas, was interviewed by CNN about the rights of refugees and the Dutch elections.

Read the interview ,and see some key quotes below:

“Jelle Klaas, a prominent Dutch human rights lawyer, says the Netherlands generally has a good track record on human rights issues, but that the current government has been criticized by the UN’s Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which voiced its concern about an “increase in hostility towards refugees and asylum-seekers” in the country.”

“The best result we could have is what we’re seeing in the US right now – a movement in the streets, in the courts, campaigning, lobbying, people claiming their basic human rights again, and using solidarity,” says Dutch human rights lawyer Klass.
