Good morning! Today a protest meeting is being organized by trade unions in education. The smoking ban will also take effect in the Amsterdam city center and a Russian tank will be exhibited on Leidseplein.

We start with the weather: in the south the sun shines, but in the rest of the country it is more often cloudy. It will be about 16 to 19 degrees.

What can you expect today?

  • The trade unions in education collectively call for action in secondary education. The first action is a protest meeting today, where they offer signatures to politicians.
  • As of today it is forbidden to smoke weed on the street in the old city center of Amsterdam. That is still allowed on the terrace of a coffee shop. The measure is intended to reduce nuisance caused by drug use in public spaces, particularly by tourists.
  • A Russian tank that was shot to pieces in the war with Ukraine is temporarily coming to Amsterdam. The tank was first in the Peace Museum in Groesbeek. In Amsterdam, the tank is part of the annual Forum on European Culture festival organized by debate center De Balie and, according to the center, symbolizes the fragility and resilience of democracy in Europe.

What did you miss?

There is again disagreement within the cabinet about the distribution law. Sources around the coalition report this to Nieuwsuur. Yesterday the elaboration of the law was to be sent to the House of Representatives, but that deadline was not met. The VVD would not agree with the way in which municipalities should implement the law.

The distribution law must ensure that asylum seekers are distributed fairly among municipalities and that municipalities that do not want to cooperate can be forced to receive asylum seekers. The law has been delayed several times due to discussions between coalition parties.

Other news from the night:

  • Rock icon Tina Turner has passed away: After a long illness at her home in Küsnacht in Switzerland, the Queen of Rock ‘n Roll passed away. Soul music with a sharp edge, with the sound that would later be called funk. Turner was 83 years old.

  • UN summit on support for Horn of Africa yields much less than hoped: The organizers hoped to raise five billion dollars for Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia, but the countries present gave a total of 800 million dollars. Most of it comes from the United States.

  • Governor DeSantis runs for president in US: Ron DeSantis’ candidacy has been long anticipated. He is participating in the Republican race to become their candidate and is the main rival of former President Donald Trump, who also wants to run again in the November 2024 elections.

And then this:

Streaming services such as Netflix, Disney and Amazon are obliged to invest part of their turnover in Dutch productions. This financial contribution cannot come soon enough for the Dutch film and television sector.
