The Bulgarian community in the Netherlands is getting ready to stage a protest rally against the website set up by the Dutch far-right Freedom Party of Geert Wilders.
The news was reported Tuesday by the Bulgarian TV channel Nova TV.
The protest is scheduled for 11 am on February 21 in front of the building of the Parliament in The Hague.
Bulgarian students and workers in the Netherlands say the views of the Dutch far-right are a form of extreme discrimination that needs serious opposition.
Geert Wilders' website, launched on Wednesday, asks people to report complaints about central and eastern European immigrants in the Netherlands.
"Do you have problems with people from central and eastern Europe? Have you lost your job to a Pole, Bulgarian, Romanian or other eastern European? We want to know," the website states.
On Friday evening Europe's justice commissioner Viviane Reding said the website is "an open call to intolerance". "The PVV website completely goes against European principles," Reding said.
