Dutch Parliament meets on oil refinery and children’s rights

smocTHE HAGUE, WILLEMSTAD – The environmental organization, SMOC has previously indicated that politics seems to be moving more than ever before when it comes to the environmental pollution of the oil refinery Isla. This will also happen tomorrow.

The Kingdom Relations Commission (House of Representatives) will handle a letter of SMOC to Minister Koenders in a so called procedures meeting. This debate can be followed live.

A day later the same committee will meet to discuss the children's rights in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, which SMOC appreciates very much. Though it is debatable whether The Hague dares to discuss the oil refinery in this debate; After all, human rights are being trampled.

SMOC has often pleaded for attention on these issues. Indeed, the youth is the future, except when you have to start in the shadow of the Isla. Then they are standing well behind others already.
