Kick Out Black Pete

Meldpunt Discriminatie Regio Amsterdam supports action group Kick Out Zwarte Piet with the registration and handling of reports of incidents with a discriminatory character during the local entrances, acting director Vincent Verkoelen announced.

Kick Out Zwarte Piet (KOZP) has set up a monitor where citizens can report incidents specifically around the figure of Zwarte Piet. This weekend several municipalities will celebrate the annual entry of Sinterklaas. KOZP will take action against the racist figure of Zwarte Piet in several places. The Meldpunt Discriminatie Regio Amsterdam will register the reports, make sure that other antidiscrimination organizations have access to the data in their region and will support KOZP with possible reports when criminal acts occur. Of course, the Meldpunt Discriminatie also handles direct complaints.
