The campaign team of Herstel NL, which advocates the reopening of society, is two members poorer on Monday. Article link https://www.news1.news/news/2021/02/unrest-at-herstel-nl-baarsma-and-teulings-leave.html
The economists Barbara Baarsma and Coen Teulings have announced that they will leave the club. In the same wording, they posted a summary message on LinkedIn on Monday evening: “I was involved in recovery from the start as a co-thinker. My role was to bring in arguments based on facts and research for good policy. I will continue to fulfill that role, but no longer with recovery. ” “As of February 23,” they are no longer involved in the initiative, they write.
It is not clear which developments led to the departure of Baarsma and Teulings. Robin Frenchman, founder of the initiative, left earlier on Monday via Twitter that the people behind Herstel NL would hold a meeting. This is because they had to consider a ‘request’ that had reached the organization through ‘circles around the cabinet’: Herstel NL was allegedly asked to ‘temporarily suspend the campaign until after the elections’. Whether that request has indeed been made and to what extent serious consideration has been given to stopping the controversial publicity campaign remained unclear on Monday evening.
Herstel NL started a large-scale campaign with billboards last week with the text ‘There is a plan with which the Netherlands can open up’. Article link https://www.news1.news/news/2021/02/unrest-at-herstel-nl-baarsma-and-teulings-leave.html
The group raised 100,000 euros through crowdfunding, according to the club, prominent opinion makers, doctors and economists. Article link https://www.news1.news/news/2021/02/unrest-at-herstel-nl-baarsma-and-teulings-leave.html
The lockdown deals “excessive damage”. “We cannot promise a hundred percent safety either, but the lockdown has now been very unsafe for large groups of people for too long”, founder Robin Fransman is quoted in an article in NRC.
