Meanwhile preparations are underway for Liberation Day today. According to Trouw, extra security measures have not been taken and festival programmes have not been shortened. At best the comperes will tone down their presentation. The north-eastern city of Zwolle will kick off the festivities. In Wageningen a liberation torch will be lit in front of Hotel De Wereld which will travel to each of the festivals held in 12 provinces and the capital Amsterdam.
"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
THIS IS ME...
... I blog from BURLINGTON, VERMONT. I'm a hustler about civic engagement & social action and I'll make publicity against a world that degrades and shames whatever way I can. Joy!
