Taking huge steps on human rights and a sustainable future in The Netherlands, The UN Committee on Economic Social and Cultural Rights expresses major concerns (“The Committee is also concerned at reports of damages to people’s homes in Groningen in the Netherlands due to gas extractions and the polluting oil refinery in Curacao”) AND issues strong recommendations (“Take measures to ensure physical safety and mental health of the people… …in Groningen and “prevent future damages”) against The Netherlands.

Congratulations to Derwin Schorren and all others in Groningen!
