Yesterday, November 14, 2015, they were thousands, in front of Brandenburger Tor.
Because of what happened in Paris the previous evening.
Many were the French, but not only: many Germans, British, Italians, Turks, Austrians etc.
Because solidarity knows no nationality, race, colour or age! And many Muslims, outraged as everyone, maybe a little more.
They say they’re ashamed, they feel victimized too: “Because of enhanced extremists we, normal people, are discriminated against”, the words of a father who was at the rally of solidarity with his wife and two sons, and a young girl, Turkish, Muslim added “Being Islamic doesn’t mean being terrorist!”, and she was right : terrorism has nothing to do with religious beliefs, the cause is ignorance.
In any case, the city of Berlin has shown its splendour through multiculturalism and winning the injury.
Another event today November 15, 2014, at 14.00, Parisier Platz, here the facebook event.
