"A message from the people of Holland…Vote against repeal of Human Rights"
We, in the land of Anne Frank, know what prejudice and discrimination can lead to. In the Netherlands, we have been living for many years with legislation which in now way limits a person's rights or liberties because they may be homosexual. Throughout history in argument used to oppress minority groups has been the alleged danger which they pose to children. Yet our children in Holland have experienced no harmful effects from our tolerant position on homosexuality. Tolerance for people of differing background is a mark of civilization. President Carter says that human rights are absolute. If America is going to effectively exercise leadership in advancing human rights around the globe, then American must make itself an example, a nation with equal rights for all. Since this is the first time a referendum is being held in the US to consider taking away human rights from a significant group, we feel compelled to send this message to our freidns and staunch ally across the sea. Discrimination against minority groups should not be tolerated anywhere in the family of nations and is in direct conflict with the Human Rights agreements of Helsinki for which America proudly stands. We wish the Dade County Coalition for Human Right success on June 7th and hope that all people of conscience will VOTE AGAINST REPEAL OF HUMAN RIGHTS.
