It’s not my country, and I only watch from afar – but I cannot understand how one can earnestly condone shooting tear gas at refugee families. Or sending troops and militias.
I also cannot understand how one can stand by while people chase refugees through the streets (in Chemnitz), or advocate to let them drown (in the Mediterranean Sea).
To me, this goes way beyond (party) politics, for me that touches the core of what I believe being human actually means – to have compassion.
We know that every living creature has the same desire: to be happy and content, and to avoid suffering
We’re one, on one planet, and there’s only one way forward: together
