Moroccan Organization: Amsterdam Mayor Stigmatizing Moroccans

The Association of Moroccans in the Netherlands (SMN) has declared that Amsterdam Mayor Job Cohen is stigmatizing Moroccans. Cohen said that many of the people who threaten ambulance workers are Moroccan Dutchmen. Cohen made this statement after five Moroccans in Amsterdam West threatened an ambulance team which was trying to treat a 15-year old who had been severely wounded in a fight. As a result all ambulance workers connected with the organization concerned went on strike for four hours. SMN claims that violence against caregivers occurs also elsewhere in the Netherlands where Moroccans are not always the perpetrators.
