Burglar Parliamentarian Hero to Some Green Politicians

Several politicians from the Green Left Party think that the party should be proud of the activist past of its “burglar parliamentarian” Wijnand Duyvendak. They have criticized party leader Femke Halsema, who distanced herself from Duyvendak’s actions and the way he has made them public now. Amsterdam party leader and alderman Maarten van Poelgeest said “The leftist media and the intelligentsia loved the action at the time. However, now they remain silent.”
