International support is fabulous! There have been actions and letters of support in and from Cook Islands, Denmark, Spain, Australia, HongKong, Ireland, the UK, the US, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Switserland, Tunesia, Italy, Argentina and many more. Actions, delegations and support.
The cleaning bosses and their main clients received 7.000+ messages from online petitioning over the globe.
One of the letters. All the way from our friends in Malawi!
“We, the Security Officers in Malawi, support our brothers and sisters in the Netherlands. Which are demanding a better future, for normal standards of work and respect and dignity on the job. We stand alongside our brothers and sisters–their fight is our fight! We call upon the Dutch multinationals and Dutch government to support the demands of the Dutch cleaners and to settle this strike as a matter of urgency.”
