What the Dutch people said NO to


Despite attempts to understate the result, there are at least two important lessons to be learned, from 6 April 2016 Dutch referendum on EU-Ukraine integration.
First, there is a social side of the story. The people have spoken against further importation of low cost laborers, lower wages for residents, and more inequality for all.
Second, there is a geopolitical implication: the people widely share criticism of EU empire building, and of related NATO dangerous expansion to East Europe.
The referendum, tough contradictory and biased as it might have been, expressed people's fears of more poverty and new wars in Europe.
Is there someone listening, out there in global elites?
