During his speech as winner of the Colourful Top 100 in 2016, Peter R. explains why he is so committed to others. Although he feels honoured to receive this prize, the necessity of the prize also exposes what is wrong with the Netherlands. Our country is not as tolerant as we make out and he thinks it is very important to stand up against injustice. He refers to his life motto ‘On bended knee is no way to be free’ and the quote from the Irish philosopher Edmund Burke ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is for good men to do nothing’. That’s why Peter R. calls on the public to always make your voice heard; “Doing nothing is not an option. Speak!”.
