Other immigrants, including refugees asylum seekers and illegal immigrants, came from Europe, America, Asia, and Africa. In the Nineteen Seventies and Nineteen Eighties, many ‘old’ Amsterdammers moved to ‘new’ cities like Almere and Purmerend, prompted by the third planological invoice of the Dutch government. This bill promoted suburbanisation and organized for new developments in so-called “groeikernen”, literally cores of development. Young professionals and artists moved into neighbourhoods de Pijp and the Jordaan deserted by these Amsterdammers. The non-Western immigrants settled mostly within the social housing initiatives in Amsterdam-West and the Bijlmer. Today, people of non-Western origin make up approximately one-fifth of the inhabitants of Amsterdam, and greater than 30% of the town’ s youngsters.

Motorcycle Riders Cross West Virginia Headed For Vietnam Memorial

Approximately 50 motorcycle riders crossed West Virginia Thursday on their way to a candlelight vigil at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C. for Memorial Day.

The cross-country motorcycle trek is called the Remember Our Fallen ride. The official Ride For The Wall was canceled for the second straight year due to COVID-19 concerns.

About 50 riders were determined to take the ride anyway. The sounds of their motorcycles could be heard by those at the state capitol as the bikers journeyed on a leg through Charleston.

This 10-day ride began in California and ends at the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington.

For Jarrod Gerbitz from Jennings, Kansas said he has always “had a deep down feeling that we need some accountability for all of our prisoners of war and everyone who has not made it home.”
