More People Interested in Emigrating from the Netherlands

This year the annual emigration fair will draw at least 50% more visitors than last year. Frans van Houten, director of the fair, says that this is probably due to the major debate over the proposed movie “Fitna” by Freedom Party leader, Geert Wilders. He said that when Pim Fortuyn and Theo van Gogh were murdered there were similar increases. People often want to leave the Netherlands due to societal developments.
