Equality also means that European Dutch are welcome in BES

During the past 50 years Antillean policy has been to keep Dutch nationals from Holland (‘European Dutch’ nationals) out, treating them like foreigners basically.
This was all done quite legally, even with Holland’s consent. European Dutch people like to dispute this, but art. 3, section 1, sub f ...

Why write about the need for equal rights?

Need for equality obvious
Some ARCO-writers wondered why we should write about this at all. ‘Isn’t it obvious?’, they protested. The BES-islands are going to be part of Holland. This has been agreed in the ‘Final Declaration’ (‘Slotverklaring’).
