WILL THIS BE A "THREE-PEAT" FOR THE ARUBAN PROTEST?



Thanks to 'Grass' for providing me with these great photos...(Here is his LINK). These are brochures that will be given out during the protest. I want to personally thank all of you that are involved, because you are going to kick butt! I am so proud that we have banded together from all different parts of the country to volunteer for ending this INJUSTICE!

This is the "third hit"...I wonder how much longer Aruba can handle us...the "squeaky wheels". This weekend during the protest I will post updates on what's happening.




By Richard--Aruban Boycott Contributor

This weekend the New Orleans protest starts. From June 27 to July 1, the Aruba Tourism Authority will be in New Orleans trying to sell a bunch of travel agents on the wonders and splendor of Aruba. "No justice for Natalee ... no tourists for Aruba."

As you might expect, they will be confronted by protesters just as they were at Boston and at Miami.

The ATA must see this as a very important event, because travel agents are in a position to steer people to Aruba. How many people, before Natalee vanished, ever thought of Aruba at all? And if their travel agents smiled and said "Oh, aren't you lucky! It's a wonderful little island!" how many people would have doubted their word?

No longer. Now tragedy has exposed to the world what Aruba is really like, and brought to light other horrors that were suppressed. The people showing up in New Orleans will not let the ATA ignore Natalee's case.

Any questions or comments, etc., can be addressed to VolunteersforNatalee@gmail.com and will be forwarded to the person in charge of things.

Beth has said outright that she continues to support the boycott. We will NEVER let Natalee's case be forgotten!

Aruba have nothing special to offer except their local Papi oily boiled potatoes on their dinner menu. New Orlean have famous Pop-pye and ProBoy Oysters. Their foods and services are fantastic. The last hurricanes somehow by nature opens a new white sand beach along the new gulf port area. Once the property rights are defined by effected land developers. It will take over Aruba's beach business.

Didn't they do a FAB job? I am really impressed by everyone's hard work and I can see results! :)

China told Oduber when the land deal goes through next year and China takes control of Aruba for next 50 years lease. The Dutch language is still the official language of the island, not the Chinese language. China asked Oduber to order ALE not to destroy any criminal investigation files, including the open case of Natalee's disappearance. China will have their own Dutch translators to convert the criminal files into Chinese language formats.

Natalee has become our American Icon, a fixation in many Americans' mind. Kind of Good versus the Evil Joran in many pubs. Joran's book is now dropped down into the after flea market, selling about two Euro a copy, or one Euro for an used one. Very disappointing for a lot of Arubans who invested their money into the venture. The Joran bookseller company never did materialised. It was probably just another scam.

The obvious changes would be the Dutch judges replaced by the China judges. The island will be guarded by the Chinese Coast Guards intead of the Dutch Marines. The Arubans are free to come and go or leave the island.

Which means Paul van der Sloot may not be able to practice law in Aruba.

The Netherlands are very clever. It is a win-win situation for them. They let a third party foreign country to clean up the corruptions and eliminate the elite white Dutch class in Aruba, also can prevent Oduber from selling Aruba to Chavez which Netherlands have no control over.

The brochures are outstanding!

I'm thankful for the Angels going to New Orleans to remind everyone that Natalee is still missing in Aruba with no answers for her family.

My prayers are with you all.

Be Safe

God Bless

The Arubans are not sure whether their sacrifice and sufferings paid for Joran's crimes and coverup are worth it. The poor hotel and cafe workers are unemployed and run out of money to buy food and water for their families. They are pondering why the pimps offer them money and send their daughters for school in Holland.

The airlines are making a profit on many routes but not on Aruba. The commissions paid to ATA and airport fees and taxes are overburdened. The airlines choose not to renew the contracts. Aruba will have to fly on their own Dutch old planes.

The China Olympic villages, hotels and resorts are planning to open for preview in December. Many visitors want to spend the Christmas Holidays there, none of them are booking the Aruba winter specials. This is a dead blow to Aruba's new resorts.

Just so you know what the text in the center of the brochure is:

Aruba - Where is Natalee Holloway?

On May 30, 2005, Natalee Holloway, an 18 year old young woman was celebrating her high school graduation with other students in Aruba, and after leaving a local establishment with three local young men at 1:30 in the morning, has not been seen or heard from since

After 24 months, the Aruban police and Arubal Legal Entity have not solved this mysterious disappearance. It appears that the government of Aruba is interested only in tourist dollars rather than the life of a person and the heartbreak of her family. The island of Aruba is not the safe place that is being promoted by the Aruban government and the Aruba Hotel and Tourist Association (AHATA). A review of the statistics of crime on the island over the past several years has been suppressed in favor of promoting a safe place for tourists.

Aruba wants this to go away and be forgotten. But, this will not happen until they come forth with what happened to Natalee and where she is right now. Someone there knows the answers and refuses to come forward with the truth.

Until there is justice for Natalee Holloway, there should be no more tourists going to Aruba.

TV interview and affirmatively claimed he spent exactly three hours with Natalee. That claim put him on the 4:30 AM time snapshot. Where had he been in those three hours? He had no witnesses. ALE and Judge Rik Smid accepted his cellphone triangulation and Internet record as his alibi. And you can see how corrupt the Aruban criminal investigation system is.

I like the way the brochure directly addresses Aruba.


To our activists in New Orleans: We are very thankful and proud of you.
