Mass discrimination-reports against Wilders
Hundreds of people flocked to the police department in Nijmegen on Tuesday to report Geert Wilders en-masse. The council of mayors and aldermen had earlier called on the city to join them as they marched on the department to report discrimination. Around 500 reports were filed against the PVV-leader for his anti-Moroccan slurs. The municipal governing board's encouragement made it so that at 11:30 a.m, a large group of people stood ready to stand up against discrimination. At 3 p.m., the police department was still receiving peoples' complaints against Wilders, a police spokesperson said. Mayor Hubert Bruls of Nijmegen led a group of around 250 people to the police department in demonstration. Aldermen, council members and even the Lord Rector of the Radboud University Nijmegen were right there behind him, as well as a large group of Dutch-Moroccans. More people joined the action at the police department. Police chief Willem Woelders was welcoming to the group, but did not want to give any comments. The police had laid stacks of forms ready for the group.
