"What we are dealing here with is is a very serious problem. It is radicalization and extremism institutionalizing in our academic institutions that are paid by the taxpayer, that are meant for general education and research
that are now being hijacked by radicalized groups".
In this follow up interview with social scientist at the University of Amsterdam, Laurens Buijs, we talk about what has happened to him after blowing the whistle, late 2022.
He's been cancelled, threatened, and defamed now also in Dutch state media. Buijs: " it's completely unacceptable we have to speak out as openly as we can about what is happening. That the university is complicit that the administration is complicit, that staff who is not speaking out is complicit. It is such a grave problem that the only thing that I can do as a whistleblower is bring it into the light".
This Follow the Science interview by Rico Brouwer was recorded late March 2023 where Laurens and Rico were paying a visit to Michaéla to see how she was doing.
