Via Campesina and 60 Civil Society Organisations demand Dutch Government Resume Support for UAWC-Palestine

Letter by 60 international civil society organisations to Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs: “Resume Dutch funding for UAWC, reject Israel’s designation of Palestinian NGOs”

26 January 2022

Dear Minister Hoekstra and Minister Schreinemacher,

On 5 January 2022, your predecessors in the former Dutch government announced that the Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC) will no longer be funded by the Netherlands.

We, the undersigned 60 civil society organisations based in Europe and elsewhere, share UAWC’s sense of shock about this decision and join the loud call of the Palestinian NGO Network (PNGO) in solidarity with UAWC.
