The actions

  • Wear the red square on prinsjesdag (September 18): The red square can be worn! This is important to increase our visibility. At the opening of the academic year it was already clearly noticed by the press. Also for upcoming Prinsjesdag - Tuesday the 18th of September - we call on everyone to wear the red square!
  • In the week of 24 to 28 September, the national action week of WOinActie will take place: At various universities, open-air lectures will be given to ask attention for overcrowded lectures, the lack of investment and the ever-increasing workload. See below for explanation by university >>>

  • #WOinAction supports the call for an action day for the entire public sector on October 2: PO in Action - known for the strikes in primary education - has called for a national action day for the entire public sector and in particular the care, education, police and defense. #WOinAction is backing this for 100%. 60 billion has been cut on the public sector since 2010, causing major problems in all sectors. You can sign up for the demonstration via this Facebookpage.
