AMSTERDAM (FICTION #7) - AMSTERDAM - 2014

A work about the dynamics of the city: a flyer was handed out in front of the Zuiderbad swimming pool,
claiming that the local government was out of money and planning to sell the swimming pool to a
company who wants to turn it into a commercial fish farm.


Translation:

NO FISH FARM
IN THE ZUIDERBAD

The city cannot afford the maintenance of the swimming pool and is going to sell the building to a company who wants to start a fish farm. In the future the pools will be used to breed Fresh Water Tilapia's. Of course it's a good thing that something is being done about overfishing, but is it necessary to close the swimming pool for that purpose? The government tells us to eat healthier and fish is better than red meat, but is the government not also telling us to exercise more, so isn't it stupid to change a swimming pool into a fish farm? The city planned to close the swimming pool twice in the past, but both times a protest group of concerned swimmers was able to prevent it! That can be done again!
PLEASE HELP SAVE THE SWIMMING POOL!
