Petition Summary  

The petitioner calls on the Parliament to react to a publicly-subsidised Dutch TV programme for children that, according to her, conveys a racially stereotyped message based on the legend of “SinterKlaas” and the associated character of “Zwarte Piet”, which portrays a character of possible African origin in a subservient manner.
