Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... and encourage European politicians to push these inquiries to the end.

I know how to do this in the US, with our Representatives and Senators... but how do you do it in Europe?

I'm new here, obviously.  And my Dutch husband isn't home, or I'd ask him ;-)

Write letters to the editor, maybe?

de Volkskrant has had some good articles on the use of airports by the CIA (Schipol included, more here).

Anyway, what do you guys suggest?

LTE is often the best bang for buck if you are short of time to campaign.

Other possible steps:

  • write to your parliamentary representatives (Euro and National)

  • Write to the government minister

  • Talk to your neighbours, friends and associates about writing too.

Well, a place to start is our very own wiki:

I knew there was a wiki, but haven't seen it yet.

I'll go take a look.

If you write to your members of the Dutch and European parliament you may be much more effective than in the US because of the surprise factor.

Just try the tried and true American methods. The European method involves going to the local bar and bitching, maybe going to a demonstration if things get bad, or striking if they get really bad, and then voting for the same dudes at the next election.

EuroTribbers should set up an action platform «« is present in wiki »» with all corresponding contact and email addresses in Brussels to become more vocal on these important Human Rights issues. The HR obligation is the backbone of the European Union, its charter and obligations of all members.
