One Woman’s Protest in Aruba; “Give Natalee Justice”


All it takes is one person to state their opinion to create a beginning to something. ThenNatalee Justice 1 again sometimes it may just be about one persons feelings on a matter. Such is the case of this American tourist who arrived Wednesday to Aruba on board the cruise ship “Volendam.” In peaceful, silent protest wearing a t-shirt that said “Give Natalee Justice” and “No Body does not equal No Crime”. She certainly made her point. This is the fear of many in Aruba and within the tourism industry. Any action like a protest or boycott against Aruba for perceptions or the actually handling of the Natalee Holloway case could easily start anywhere or from anything.

    15. Kelly on October 21st, 2005 9:36 am

      It’s amazing that it seems ever since people started using the nasty word, “boycott”, that case seems to be moving in a better direction for the missing girl…..God Bless Natalee – today, 10/21/05 is her 19th b-day…..happy birthday, Natalee…..I hope you are found soon….if you are deceased, rest in peace, my dear….I just turned 37 yesterday….God Bless Natalee! Dave & Beth, we are still supporting you & thinking of you here in Pittsburgh, PA! The USA will NEVER stop supporting you!

    16. Jerry on October 21st, 2005 9:40 am

      How sad! She could have chosen a better hat as well!

      JMO, of course!

    23. Peapod on October 21st, 2005 12:53 pm

      I think its great they get reminded like that. That was powerful!

    24. SB on October 21st, 2005 2:48 pm

      thank you for having the courage to do this

    25. Lauren on October 21st, 2005 3:05 pm

      I think all tourists who want to support Natalee and who are on a cruise that stops in Aruba should think about doing this. What a great idea. It’s peaceful and while she’s sitting there, she isn’t spending her money on Aruba. I hope more will follow.

    26. Sarahscooby on October 21st, 2005 3:41 pm

      Finally the voice of reason in Aruba. I just hope she didn’t have a mystery man following her like Beth Twitty did.

    27. Linda - L.A. on October 21st, 2005 4:39 pm

      What a classy way to actually “do” something.

    28. nelson on October 21st, 2005 9:51 pm

      A man following Beth, sounds like people are really going crazy here!!

    29. Tazman on October 23rd, 2005 1:34 am

      Brave lady to silently protest like that instead of shopping throughout the town.

      I hope Natalee is found soon. Her family will not stop searching and neither will the people that support them. Too many people have decided to stick with this case until it is solved.

      I’m praying for Dave and Beth and their families.

    30. sandy on October 23rd, 2005 3:02 am

      Great idea my hats off to you. I hope others take up the same course especially those visiting the island. What a great way to let aruba know that the world is watching them and waiting for justice for natalee.

    31. G.G. on October 24th, 2005 10:54 am

      This is only possible in a peaceful Aruba, who is a democratic Island and love the American Tourist so much that they have guide this particular Tourist to the Court House for her peaceful thought on a T-shirt. This in a peaceful way and very appreciated by the Aruban, and have get the media atentention for this. But this is only posible in Aruba, not in the other caribbean Island or Latin America. After this she was going shopping a buy many souvenirs from Aruba. Thank you so much friend.

      Godd bless aruba and godd bless america!!
      NOT JORAN!!
