Topiko: summit pobresa I derecho di ekspreshon liber I derecho di igualdat I non-diskriminashon

Apresiable senjoresnan,

Basa riba nos derecho di libertad di ekspreshon i derecho di igualdat I no-deskriminashon I e resiente atentado di intimidashon riba liberdat di prensa liber, nos ta hanja nos obliga di trese lo siguiente na boso atenshon:

Dialuna 9 di januari e Gobiernu di Bonaire huntu ku Gobiernu di Hulanda representa pa e komishon figo di Relashonan di Reino a tene un summit riba pobresa na Courtyard Marriott na Bonaire. Nos movimiento Nos Kier Boneiru Bek a organisa un akshon di protesta ku e obhetivo pa jama atenshon na hecho ku e gobiernu lokal aktual I e gobiernu Hulandes representa den e kaso aki pa Komishon figo di Relashonan di Reino tur dos no ta respeta e resultado di desishon demokratiko di e pueblo Boneirano su referendum di 2015. kaminda 65% di e votadonan a rechasa e aktual status I struktura konstitushonal ku un No-voto I ku e Gobiernu Hulandes a hasi e prome lezing pa aneksa I ankra nos teritorio permanentemente den konstitushon Hulandes kontra di doktrina di ley internashonal I kontra desishon demokratiko di e pueblo Boneriano.

Nos a informa gezaghebber I anunisa publikamente ku e protesta pasivo aki lo wordu tene pafor di e tereno di Marriott, riba e parti di kaminda publiko I ku nos lo kuminsa jega serka otro pa 3or di atardi wardando ora e konferensia-di-prensa di e summit kaba ku lo mester a tuma lugar entre 3;30 pa 3:45pm I asina nos por a ekspresa nos malokontentu ku borchinan di protesta di akuerdo ku nos derechonan demokratiko.

Sinenbargo asina nos a jega na sitio I posishona nos mes pafor, otro banda di kaminda manera nos a anunsia, nos a tuma nota ku algun miembronan di konseho insular, nos a mira Sr Beukenboom I Sr Kroon I otronan a kuminsa bai direkshon di nan auto riba e tereno di parkeer. Nos a pidi un di nos koleganan pa bai check ku nan ku tin un kambio di programa pasobra nan tabata bayendo. Jegando na e entrada e security guard a tuma un posishon hostil I a rechasa entrada na nos kolega, ku no tabatin ni borchi di protesta, ni ningun objeto ni nada huntu ku ne.

Esaki tabata un momento kritiko pasobra nos objetivo tabata pa protesta kontra e Gobiernu Hulandes su violashon di nos derechonan demokratiko, di outodeterminashon I derechonan humano I e proseso deskriminatorio di ankra nos riba base di inigualdat den nan konstitushon, awor riba nos mes isla nos ta wordu depriva di movementu liber pa un tereno ku no tin ningun indikashon o marka ku no-entrada o entrada prohibi o ningun sorto di borchi di indikashon ku un suidadano Boneriano no por pasa I wordu para violentamente pa security guardnan. Nos ta sinti ku e kadena Mariott Courtyard Internashonal mester ta un lokashon publiko kaminda tur suidadano por drenta sin ningun deskriminashon I si un persona no ta kondusi su mes na e reglanan di e hotel o ta presenta algun risiko tin derecho di pidi nan pa bandona. Den e kaso aki nos no a hasi nada robes solamenta a pidi pa bai den e lugar di parkeer I no ta komprende ningun rason dikon e security guard a para nos manera ariba menshona I a pusha fisikamente nos kolega ku ta muhe pafor di e tereno. Nos ta sinti ku e security guard no por asalta un persona inofensivo fisikamente.

Basa riba e hecho ku nos fundashon semper a promove I tene maifestashonan pasivo, I e insidente aki di deskriminashon I agreshon fisiko riba un suidadano, basa riba su liber ekspreshon di su orientashon politiko I dentro di su derecho demokratiko I derechonan humano di ekspreshon liber i derecho di igualdat I no-deskriminashon, nos ta sinti ku e management di Marriott mester pidi despensa na nos fundashon. Tambe nos ta sinti ku nos gobiernu, komo nos gezaghebber tabata presente I a tuma nota di parti di e situashon aki I den luz di e resiente atentado kontra libertad di prensa liber, mester kondena e akto deskriminatorio aki basa riba e mesun motibunan ariba menshona I dor di no hasi esaki ta konseshon na violashon di e derechonan menshona.

Open letter to Management of Marriott Courtyard International and Government of Bonaire,

Subject: poverty summit Bonaire and right to freedom of expression and right to equality and non-discrimination

Dear Sirs,

Based on our right to freedom of expression, the right to equality and non-discrimination and the recent attempt of intimidation of freedom of free press, we feel obliged to bring the following to your attention:

Monday , January 9th the Government of Bonaire together with the Government of Holland represented by commission Kingdom Relations delegation held a summit on poverty at the Courtyard Marriott on Bonaire. Our movement Nos Kier Bonaire Bek organized a protest-action with the objective to draw the attention to the fact that the current local government and the Dutch government represented in this case by the commission Kingdom Relations both have not respected the results of the democratic decision of the Bonerian peoples 2015 referendum, where 65% of the voters, rejected the current constitutional structure with a No-vote and the Dutch parliament have made the first reading to annex and embed the island territory permanently in the Dutch constitution, against international law doctrine and against the democratic decision of the Bonerian peoples.

We have informed the governor and announced publicly that said passive protest will be held outside the Marriott premises, on the public road section and time to start gathering will be 3oclock , awaiting the finishing of the summit press-conference which was to take place at 3:30 to 3:45 and so we can show our discontent with protest-boards based on above according to our democratic rights.

However when we just arrived and positioned ourselves outside, over the road as we informed and announced, we start noticing that some island council members, we saw Mr Beukenboom, Mr. Kroon and others start leaving to their car in the car-park. We asked one of our colleagues to go check with them and ask them if there is a change of program as they are leaving. When reaching at the car-entrance the security guards took a hostile position and refused entrance to our colleague, which had no protest-boards, nor any object or anything with her.

This was a critical moment because our objective was to protest against the Dutch government violation of our democratic, self-determination and human-rights and discriminatory process to embed us on in-equal base in their constitution, we on our own island is being deprived free movement to a not-marked as no-entrance or prohibited entrance or any signs that a Bonaire citizen cannot trespass and violently by security-guards. We feel that Mariott Courtyard International brand should be a public place for any citizen to enter without discrimination and if someone is not conducting themselves according to the rules of the hotel of present themselves a risk, then have the right to ask the person to leave. In this case we have not done anything out of conduct only to ask them to go into the car-park and could not see any reason why the guard stopped us, as mentioned above, and physically pushed our female colleague out of the premises. We feel the guard should not physically assault a harmless person.

Based on the fact that our foundation always has promoted and done non-violent manifestations, and this incident of physical discriminatory aggravation of a citizen, based on free expression of it’s political view and within it’s democratic rights and human right of freedom of expression and right to equality and non-discrimination, we feel that the management of Marriott should apologize to our foundation. We feel also that our government, as our governor was present and has taken notice of part of this situation and in the light of the recent attempt on freedom of free press, should condemn this discriminatory act based on the same grounds as mentioned above and by not doing so is concession to violation of mentioned rights.

Sincerely yours,
