20 men and one woman participate in the pole sitting contest at the Braassermermeer in Roelofarendsveen. After two days and nights only five participants remain on their poles, amongst them Hannes de Jong and the brothers Aad and Hennie van de Berge. The contest is being held to focus people and politics on the growing water pollution.
