Maastricht, April 24th 2005
Universiteit Maastricht blocks website for planning an anti-Bush demonstration
Last week, the Universiteit Maastricht (UM) blocked access to the server where the site http://www.bushinlimburg.tk was hosted.
This website was an initiative of the University Environmental Platform (UMPM, www.umpm.nl) of Universiteit Maastricht and was hosted on part of the space provided for the UMPM site on a university server.
UMPM launched the campaign website to help in coordinating for a demonstration planned during the visit of President Bush to South-Limburg (The Netherlands) on 7-8 May.
The UMPM decided to participate in preparing for the demonstration in Maastricht on May 7th because of the drastic environmental record of the Bush administration.
The United States emits 36% of the greenhouse gases in the North but refuses to ratify the Kyoto Protocol.
For an environmental group such as UMPM, this provides all the reasons to protest against Bush during his visit to South Limburg.
The University Environmental Platform is deeply upset by this decision of the Universiteit Maastricht.
The arguments of the UM behind this decision are highly questionable and this appears to be straightforward censorship.
Further, the students of the UMPM are highly disappointed by the decision of the Universiteit Maastricht which was elected the best university in the Netherlands last year.
On the one hand, the UM claims to encourage its students to become engaged citizens, but on the other, it curtails their freedom of speech.
On Friday, 22nd of April, the website was transferred to the independent and socially progressive web-hosting service, the Antenna foundation. The site http://www.bushinlimburg.tk now runs on 100% green electricity.
Action committee Bush Busters, from Limburg, The Netherlands: Heerlen, 1 May 2005. This morning, the action committee Bush Busters has painted white crosses and slogans on some of the objects which George W. Bush will see 7-8 May during his visit to the Netherlands. With slogans like ‘Bush war criminal’, ‘Shame on you’ and ‘A murderer comes to town’.
