26th of February 2020 – Today it is one week since the racist attacks in two shisha bars in Hanau, Germany. The attacks have received a lot of attention during the last seven days. But the earth continues to turn, and as time passes so does the media's interest in the subject.Yet we should be on our guard against the power of the restless forward drive of the news cycle to distract us from the (growing) presence of right-wing extremism and racism in our society.
This message offers us an opportunity to remember.We must let our voices be heard and stand up against right-wing extremism and racism.
Let us never forget the victims of racism, not for one day.
Let us share this message on a regular basis.
