Summary title: Petition No 0017/2018 by J. C. (Dutch) on stopping the Dutch Government subsidising racist television programmes for schoolchildren
Petition number: 0017/2018
Topics: Fundamental Rights
Name: J. C.
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.
