The European Parliament considers that a website launched by the Dutch Freedom Party (PVV) incites discrimination

The resolution approved by the European Parliament with regard to the a Dutch Freedom Party (PVV) website calls on the Dutch government to condemn this website. According to the text, the website goes against the fundamental European values of human dignity. In addition, MEPs ask to stop the spread of xenophobic attitudes like those expressed on this website.

MEPs approved a resolution which calls on the Member States, and specifically to the Dutch government, to condemn a Dutch Freedom Party (PVV) website which invites to introduce complaints against citizens from Central and Eastern Europe living in the Netherlands. According to the resolution, the initiative openly incites discrimination. From May 2011, citizens from the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia will have full right to work in any Member State.

The resolution also stresses that the Dutch government's commitment to European integration has significantly decreased in recent years, as shown by its position on issues such as enlarging the Schengen area and the free movement of workers. Bearing in mind this problem, the European Parliament calls on the European Commission and the Council to do their utmost to stop the spread of xenophobic attitudes like those expressed on this website.

On the other hand, the Parliament remains that workers from the countries that joined the EU in 2004 and 2007 have had a positive impact on EU Member States' economies and have made a significant contribution to sustained economic growth in the EU. In addition, many citizens, political parties, the media, employers and civil society leaders have condemned the PVV site, launching counter-initiatives such as a website on which Dutch citizens can report positive experiences with Polish people.
