Dear friends of WeAreInThisTogether.eu!
Since Wednesday morning hundreds of Europeans have come to the Italian Embassy in Berlin and the Italian Consulate in Cologne. On our initiative they have sent a clear signal: We won't leave anyone alone and we know that we can only do it together!
With the necessary Corona distance, they left a message of friendship and urged for common acts of solidarity. Already in the afternoon the oversized banners were full of messages. Many personalities from civil society and politics also signed in Berlin and Cologne.
It was very obvious how grateful the participants are for the opportunity to express their solidarity and show once again: We are further than the German Federal Government!
When the Heads of State and Government discuss European measures today, the German Federal Government in particular will have these strong images in mind. What is needed now is effective European solidarity through joint bonds and a large European reconstruction fund. The German Government must show solidarity instead of cold-heartedness.
Our great thanks go to the broad alliance of pro-European organisations and to you all, without whom this action could not have been successful.
With European and resolute greetings
Your Franziska Brantner, Sven Giegold, Alexandra Geese
