The LAKS explains that this way it attention, wanted to ask for the problems in education. “We have a lot of positive reactions and that way it is managed,” says the organization.
Chairman of the LAX, Sven Annen, says to NU.nl, that Wednesday a lot of negative reactions on the self-proclaimed verkiezingsstunt. “We have no regrets,” says Annen. “We had this taken into account and seen as a last resort.”
Annen: “Without taking risk you will never make it and we want to show that we do not let us be pushed around. Even negative attention is attention.”
Annen said on Monday: “It is time that the education at its foundation is addressed. The politics would be in the interest of the pupil should act.” He added that LAX is, therefore, eligible wild and that he is party leader would be.
