:As news spreads of how Dutch people chose hope over hate in these elections, Avaaz members around the world are signing a global "Thank You" letter to the Netherlands.
Read the letter below, and see names coming in from across the world -- then spread it far and wide to share in the celebrations. Thank you, Netherlands!
To the people of the Netherlands:
Thank you for choosing hope, unity, and dialogue over hate, fear and old fascist rhetoric. By rejecting Geert Wilders you've helped stop the rise of the far right everywhere, and shown the world that what unites us can overcome the bigotry and lies used to divide us.
We stand with you in fighting extremism, and pledge to do the same in our own countries.
