Rodaan Al Galidi

February 21st, 2013



Our dear friend poet and writer Rodaan Al Galidi is facing the threat of being expelled from Holland. He failed his “inburgeringstoets” by four points. What is happening to this country? Are we expelling writers and poets who are teaching us more about tolerance and life then most of our politicians? We are very proud that Rodaan has  contributed a beautiful poet to our new CD and that he is is regularly performing with Haytham in Dutch and in Arabic. We will support the efforts by D’66 in Zwolle to help him stay in Holland.

UPDATE!

just received a message from D66 in Zwolle. He indeed failed his ínburgeringstest’ by four points but it is not as bad as the article in de Stentor mentioned. Also see read this weblog: http://www.decontrabas.com/de_contrabas/2013/02/rodaan-al-galidi-nog-steeds-geen-nederlander.html
