SI? SI!

The 2009 Curacao referendum

According to Eric de Vries, “Many of the group of citizens on Curacao who predominantly speak English have requested information on the referendum of May 15, 2009, and in particular an explanation what the referendum will be about and why they should vote “YES” or “NO”.” He wrote an article (click here) in which he addresses those issues.

Further information can be found here (in Dutch), here (in English) and here (in Papiamento). Vota SI could not use the domain name www.vota-si.com, among other websites, because it was registered, and thus blocked, by the opposition on 3 February 2009 as one of their campaign tricks. However, www.si-vota-si.com and www.vota-yes.com were still available.
