Support Radio Netherlands Worldwide
Edited by Carolyn Bennett

Radio Netherlands Worldwide faces imminent cuts and its staff has launched petitions for support from the international press, business, and the public — www.radionetherlands4u.nl

I listen regularly online to RNW.

Radio Netherlands Worldwide staff have launched an online petition via a campaign website in its various languages www.radionetherlands4u.nl. At the site, listeners and readers are asked to sign a petition [I signed] to the Dutch parliament.

The petition stresses the importance of the Netherlands’ international service to the regions to which it broadcasts. Hundreds of messages of support are pouring in on various language sites and on Facebook and Twitter.

Staff members are concerned that the overall cuts to the tune of 22 percent in the Dutch public broadcasting sector will be imposed on the media organization before the government has decided on the function it wants Radio Netherlands Worldwide to fulfill in the future. Staff are also demanding clarity with regard to the transfer of responsibility and funding of the organization from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science to the Foreign Ministry in 2013.

A representative for the company-wide campaign committee Iede de Vries says, “We don’t want to see RNW subjected to cuts in the public broadcasting sector amounting overall to 200 million Euros now, only to face another round of cuts under the Foreign Ministry which will be looking to save 900 million Euros in 2013. … 

“Staff at Radio Netherlands Worldwide understand they will be asked to make sacrifices as part of a range of government cuts, however [they] fear The Hague is throwing away the baby with the bathwater.”

Support Radio Netherlands Worldwide. Keep a good thing and keep it free. www.radionetherlands4u.nl
