hallo Stefan, you gave a nice sketch of what is also our personal history. The first 15 years of WW’s Netherlands were still focussing on awareness-raising.
The real trade-oriented approach developed in the 80’ies with Solidaridads initiative, leading to Max Havelaar on 15-11-1988.
Also the Rietsuikeractie took place in 1968, although the impulses came also from journalistic comments on World Trade Conference I in 1964.
Thanks for your contribution. Enschede 5 nov 2015, Jan H.C.Velterop
