Protest Upon Arrival of Dutch Prime Minister in Curaçao

Upon their arrival in Willemstad, the capital of Curaçao, Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende and Deputy Minister Ank Bijieveld (Christian Democrats) were welcomed by a protest demonstration. About a hundred protestors stood before their Dutch guests and local politicians, wearing yellow Stars of David on their clothing and carrying signs saying “Treason” and “Sellout.” The Dutch guests are there to finalize the dissolution of the Dutch Antilles and the autonomy of the island.
