All round the Netherlands people are campaigning against the Rutte cabinet's policy on nature.

 It's a silent protest, though. The campaign is called ‘Erasing nature' and entails crossing out references to nature in place and street names on signs. Of course, life sciences city Wageningen cannot lag behind. On Wednesday 30 November, the raven (raaf in Dutch) was erased from various signs for the Dijkgraaf. No comment from Dijkg- residents.
