Dutch teachers strike, pupils to Artis zoo?


This 6 November 2019 Dutch video was about a big national teachers’ strike in the Netherlands, against the austerity policies on education of the right-wing Dutch government, with demonstrations in various cities.

On 30-31 January 2020, there will again be a big national teachers’ strike in the Netherlands, against the austerity policies on education of the right-wing Dutch government.

Eg, on 30 January, there will be big demonstrations in The Hague, in Groningen and other cities.

The strike has much support among teachers, other school workers, students and parents.

Also, eg, from Ms Sarina Wiegman, the coach of the Dutch women’s football team, European champions and silver medal winners at the World Cup in France.

And also, support from Artis zoo in Amsterdam.

Normally, children of under 10 pay € 20,50 admission for the zoo. On the days of the strike, 30-31 January, that will be 4 € for pupils and students. Adults accompanying them usually pay 24 €. On the days of the strike, 18 €. All day, zookeepers will tell the visitors about the animals.

This 2015 video says about itself:

Micropia in Amsterdam is the first museum dedicated to the science of microscopic organisms. With high-tech and interactive exhibits, Micropia brings this world to life and makes this invisible world visible. In this video, Shoshannah from Awesome Amsterdam discovers that we all have trillions of microbes on our bodies and more that live in our homes and in our surroundings. And that they are necessary to our health, environment & the food we eat. Micropia is a fascinating visit that’s both entertaining and educational. Travel to Micropia and meet your microbes!

On the days of the teachers’ strike, pupils and students can visit Micropia for 5 €; usually 14 €. Adults accompanying them usually pay 16 €. On the strike days, 12 €.
