Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
Three young Muslims killed in the USA this week have been commemorated on the Dam in Amsterdam. Around 19:00 between 100 and 200 people gathered. They carried posters with photographs of the three victims. They also had banners with texts like: stop the smear campaign against Muslims.
The participants of the memorial are angry about the lack of attention in the Dutch media for the murders. They are amazed that the 46-year-old man who shot and killed the Muslims is not called a terrorist.
US President Barack Obama has condemned the murder of the three Muslim students in the state of North Carolina. He called the murder cruel and atrocious. “Nobody in the US should be the target for what they are, how they look, or what religion they profess”, Obama said in a statement.
Last Wednesday, the two women of 19 and 23 years old and a 21-year-old man were shot dead in an apartment at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Solidarity Message to Greece from Amsterdam 4/4
19 February 2012
The society belongs to the people and not to the banks. GREEK PEOPLE DO NOT WANT ANY OTHER RESCUE PLAN. Yesterday, the Greek Parliament approved the new austerity packaged that forces the people into the misery in order to save the European banks. Under the pressure of the EU, the European Central Bank (ECB) and the IMF, and at the joy of the bankers all over Europe, the Parliament decided to reduce the minimum monthly salary to 480 euros (435 for young people), the unemployment benefit to 369 euros, cut down pensions, privatize health care and education. The priority of the state will no longer be to ensure a decent living to the citizens of the country but to serve the debt towards the domestic and international creditors.
The new ‘rescue’ plan for Greece is actually a rescue plan for the European banks. The northern European tax payers will be forced to provide another 130 billion euros to serve the Greek sovereign debt. This money will end up directly with the European banks and will be never returned to the people. Like the previous rescue plans, the new plan is only meant to fail and take along into the path of destruction, the Greek people but also the European pension funds and the state finances of the rest of the Eurozone countries.
The Greek people took to the streets yesterday in hundreds of thousands to fight the decisive battle against their enslavement to the bankers. The puppet government of the banker Papademos does not enjoy the support of the people. The brutal and unprovoked attack of the security forces against the massive demonstrations proves this.
We stand on the same side with the people of Greece. We demand the bail-outs and the ‘rescue’-plans to cease immediately and the Troika (EU-ECB-IMF) to leave the country. We demand the Greek government to step down immediately and all those responsible for the crisis to be prosecuted.
We want austerity to stop all over Europe and the rights of the people to prevail against the profits of the bankers.
We make this call for 14.00 on Saturday 18/2 at Beursplein in Amsterdam to express our solidarity to the people in Greece.

Solidarity with the people in Greece! No to the blackmail of the EU! 15/2 Dam Square Amsterdam,14:00h
SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE IN GREECE! NO TO THE BLACKMAIL OF THE EU!
ΤHE CRISIS WILL NOT BE PAID BY THE EUROPEAN CITIZENS!
On Sunday February 15th there will be demonstrations all over Greece and Europe since in these days crucial negotiations between the Greek government and the Eurogroup will take place. These demonstrations will send the message to the European leaders that the people of Europe will be also present during these negotiations. Our demands for the end of austerity and the abolition of the memoranda (the so-called austerity programmes) should be the starting point for any new agreements.
We invite everybody to join us on Sunday in solidarity with the citizens of Greece against Eurogroup’s persistence to continue with the regime of austerity policies in Europe. We want to show our support to the popular demands and the needs of the people who fight against these policies across Europe. We want to put a pressure on the newly formed coalition government of SYRIZA as well that they should not give in to this blackmail and that they should respect the recent mandate they received from the Greek people.
