Today, teachers have been on strike everywhere in the Netherlands. The government does not employ enough teachers, meaning primary school children are in overcrowded classes. So far, the Dutch government refuses to employ more teachers, claiming they are a caretaker government and there is no new government after the elections yet. There is a quarrel between the government coalition political parties on this issue.
Today, there is a big demonstration against government education policy in The Hague.
Elementary school teachers are to strike May 30 in the southern provinces of the Netherlands, as part of a wave of working class struggles that brought the number of strike actions in the small country to 32 in 2017, the highest number since 1989: here.

Easter bonfire canceled due to bird’s nest in woodpile
Dronten April 11, 2017
It should become an annual tradition, the Easter fire at the Roggebotstaete estate in Dronten. But a little bird threw a spanner in the works. A great tit built a nest in the woodpile.
Lennard Duijvestijn has to laugh, but is secretly also disappointed a little: “We have made a large woodpile six meters high and wanted to invite everyone; then along comes this bird.”.
At Roggebotstaete estate nature is a high priority. “That the great tit precisely chose this stake among all the trees to nest is also very funny,” says Duivesteijn. He lets the bird nest quietly. “We just postpone the Easter fire, and when all eggs will have hatched and the young birds will have fledged then we we will set it on fire.”
This November 2014 video from Britain is called Ivy Bee (Colletes hederae) nest site.
Ivy bees are a species which used to live in the Netherlands only in the southern provinces.
In England, this species had been seen for the first time in 2001.
Wildlife warden Harco Bergman brings also other animals which have been killed by traffic accidents to this spot, like a heron and a beech marten. This way, people can see how animals after their death contribute to keeping other wildlife alive.
