Resolutie om repressie in Iran te veroordelen en vrouwenrechten verdedigen werd nt unaniem goedgekeurd in #dekamer omwille van slappe onthouding van PVDA! Als het over China, Rusland en Iran gaat, vinden ze excuus om misdaden toe te dekken. Onbegrijpelijk en verontrustend. @cdenv pic.twitter.com/lzhPomlN6p— Els Van Hoof (@ElsVanHoofcdenv) November 11, 2022
