10/12  Big Demonstration for the Lutkemeerpolder

The Lutkemeerpolder is an ancient 42-hectare area of agricultural land near Osdorp on the outskirts of Amsterdam the city council wants to destroy in favour of a distributioncentre.
Saturday 12 October from 2-4 p.m. is the last chance to make it clear that citizens of Amsterdam will not accept that the only remaining organic farmland in Amsterdam is buried under construction sand.

So put on your boots, take a spade and a ball of garlic: together we will fill the polder with plants again. Help us mobilize, tell about it and take people with you!
After the planting and shovel action there is time for music, a drink and some fun.
