On February 25, 1941, Amsterdam workers stopped work en masse in protests against the Nazi terror that their Jewish fellow citizens had to endure. It was the largest uprising against the German Nazi occupier and the persecution of Jews. Today the far-right is given plenty of space to express their discriminatory views and is also preparing for government participation, making the lessons of the February strike crucial in opposing them.

In Ron’s introduction and the discussion we will look into questions such as:
– What did solidarity of working people look like?
– How did they organize the resistance?
– What role did the various socialist forces play?
– What can we learn from it?

As always, discussion is encouraged but we do not give a stage to racism, homophobia, transphobia or other discriminatory views. The meeting will be in English, but participations in Dutch are also welcome. Unfortunately, the meeting is not wheelchair accessible, as it is upstairs.
