Welkom bij Hollaback! Amsterdam. Wij zetten ons in voor het bestrijden van straatintimidatie, door het delen van ervaringen met straatintimidatie, door daders verantwoordelijk te houden voor hun daden en door beleidsmakers in beweging krijgen. Met jouw hulp kunnen we straatintimidatie op de kaart zetten als een probleem wat ook in Nederland urgent aandacht verdient. Door je verhaal te delen laat je aan anderen zien dat zij veilig hetzelfde kunnen doen en laat je de overlastplegers weten dat hun gedrag consequenties heeft!

We werken eraan de oorspronkelijke website naar het Nederlands te vertalen. Of je nu Nederlands, Engels of beide talen spreekt, op deze plek kun je je ervaringen delen en anderen aanmoedigen hetzelfde te doen.

Alexis’ story: Calling me names

I was biking home and while I was on the Noordzeeweg, which is a bike path next to a highway, with high walls, I was surprised by a loud shouting man who was calling me names. I was the only other person on that road and it was getting darker, so obviously I felt intimidated.

As he continued to bike past me I saw how he shouted also something to a woman biking in the other direction.

“A group of guys acting rough”

there was a group of guys from around 20 to 30 y.o, and they were speaking to all females that were walking by. Asking where they were going and telling them how sexy they walked. I felt very uncomfortable and even walked passed my own front door so that they wouldn’t see where I lived in case they were watching me.

Xing’s story: A poor excuse for an apology

Around 1/6/16: A vehicle was parked along Holterbergweg. As I passed by, an employee shouted ‘Sayonara!’ at me. I took a picture of the vehicle and made a complaint to the company.

They replied: “On account of your e-mail of June the first, we spoke with our employe in question. He was not aware of the history facts and the sentiments. You are right, our employe just had good intentions and thought he was being friendly. We are sorry that you perceived otherwise. For the future our employe will take into account that not everybody can appreciate being greeted this way. We consider the matter as closed and we wish you a nice day.”

In other words, the company gave a ‘sorry-not-sorry’ response, insinuating that the blame was on me, for failing to perceive his ‘friendliness.’

Xing’s story: catcallers get a deserved response

25/8/16: Small white car with two males wearing red shirts (one with glasses and one without) in the front seats, shouted at me while passing by on De Boelelaan. Then as they passed the woman cyclist some 20 metres in front of me, she looked abruptly at them and her left hand flew up. I was too far away to hear but they almost certainly shouted at her too. They stopped at the traffic light, at the junction with Van Leijenberghlaan. I parked my bicycle in front of their car so that they couldn’t move, and was about to take a picture of their car when the police showed up. The police officers questioned us separately, confirmed my story, and gave them a stern lecture and a warning. They assured me that any subsequent violation will result in a ticket.
