Breaking: Geert Wilders and Vlaams Belang strengthen ties in The Hague

High level delegations of both Vlaams Belang [Flemish Interest] and the Dutch Freedom Party, the PVV are currently meeting in the Second Chamber building in The Hague. The meeting on Thursday will see the parties of Tom van Grieken and Geert Wilders sharing experiences and strategies to counter oppressive Islamization in Flanders and the Netherlands.

    There will be a large number of politicians from both VB and the PVV present. Members of other groups, such as European Parliament member Gerolf Annemans and Filip Dewinter, were also attending.

    PVV Vice-Chairman Fleur Agema and group leaders Marjolein Faber (First Chamber) Marcel de Graaff (EP delegation) and other MPs were present as well. Prior to the meeting, the party leaders met.

    According to Wilders, both parties are engaged in an important struggle for “maintaining their own culture, identity and freedom, and thus against Islamization”. He argued that Vlaams Belang and the PVV have more in common with each other than with other parties in their own country.

    It is, however, not the first time that Vlaams Belang and the Freedom Party display their ties in the spotlight. In March last year, the Dutch PVV leader was a guest speaker at a Flemish colloquium in the Flemish Parliament’s Lokettenzaal. On Thursday, the Flemish crossed the border.

    “That the Netherlands and Flanders are struggling in many areas with the same challenges and problems, speaks for itself. An intrusive European Union, the ever-increasing immigration and the associated islamization, oppressive Islamic terrorism… The examples are legitimate and people are being deceived by policymakers,” said Van Grieken.

    “Together with the PVV, we are not just the voice of that people. Most of all, we also want to return the power to the people.” Wilders also emphasizes the similarities between his party and the VB. “It is therefore important to exchange ideas and experiences and to form a common patriotic front in Europe and to strengthen mutual ties,” the Dutch leader says.
