Stop de Herkeuringen

Den Hague Demonstation

Stop the Evaluations.

The action committee ‘Stop the Re-evaluations’ held a demonstration in Den Hague on March 21st.

It appears that under the new House of Representatives the disability evaluations are going to continue as they have under the last government. For those on disability that are 45 or older as of July 1st 2004 there is some relief as they are not to be called on the carpet. For those younger than 45 the nightmare continues. People are miraculously healed while attending the screening. They walk in disabled and walk out being told they are able to work. There is no hope of them ever getting a job as companies are not looking to waste their time and energy on people who really cannot work, even with the bribe (subsidies) offered by the government. Not only will the the ‘healed’ not get a job but they also lose their disability premiums.

Apparently just over 100 persons showed up for the demonstration. Not too bad considering it was a work day and that the persons who are disabled would have a hard time making the trip to Den Hague. What also surprises me is that it was not covered in the news. I read a short article in one of the online papers and other than that I did not see it anywhere. I find this questionable and wonder what that is all about. Could be because the Socialistic Party plays a big role in helping the hundreds of thousands of people that have been affected by this new criteria and evaluation system for the disabled.

This problem is not going to go away here in Holland and the SP is also not going to go away. It is time to take a serious look at the criteria that is being used to evaluate the disabled. Changing a persons status from disabled to abled in a one hour session is creating a whole set of problems to which there are no solutions. (SP)

    I suppose there are legal mechanisms in Holland for those who feel they have been treated unfairly to protest and regain their rights.
