Save the historical saloon boats of Amsterdam

20,192 signatures

If the policy of the City of Amsterdam continues, in the coming years almost all classic/historic boats will disappear from the canals of Amsterdam. Entrepreneurs with healthy businesses will go bankrupt, employees will end up on the street and sailing heritage will disappear. This can't be the intention!

Petition

We

residents of Amsterdam, lovers of the canals, ship owners, (sailing) staff, and all others.

 

observe

  • That the City of Amsterdam has terminated all permits for saloon boats.
  • That the survival of healthy companies now depends on a lottery.
  • that this means that sailing heritage is disappearing from the canals, many (especially small) entrepreneurs are going bankrupt, employees are losing their jobs, and
  • that all the corona subsidies have been for nothing.

 

and request

The City of Amsterdam to revise its policy so that Amsterdam's sailing heritage and characteristic saloon boats can be preserved, and so that entrepreneurs can continue their businesses and jobs can be safeguarded.

Wij willen jullie ontzettend bedanken voor het ondertekenen van onze petitie. Het is hard nodig, omdat het zoveel mensen raakt.

Het is niet alleen zonde om de boten straks te moeten missen, maar er werkt ook ontzettend veel personeel (vast of zzp) op de grachten. Ook voor hen is de toekomst erg onzeker. Tot nu toe houdt de gemeente gewoon vast aan het beleid en zullen de komende jaren de problemen zich blijven opstapelen.

Daarom aan jullie de vraag om de petitie nog een keer te delen, via je kennissenkring of (nog beter) op sociale media. Hoe meer handtekening, des te sterker het signaal naar de politiek.

Alvast enorm bedankt
