Gregor Gysi: "This terrible attack in Berlin deeply devastates us all"

Concerning the attack in Berlin Gregor Gysi, President of the Party of the European Left (EL) states:

This terrible attack in Berlin with leaving many death and injured deeply devastates us all.

One cannot fathom how hard this attack hits the relatives and friends of the murdered and injured.

We are all empathizing with them.

Christmas is normally a festivity of love and solidarity – and it should stay like that.

The people have the right to visit public events, like Christmas markets, safely and unharmed.

The perpetrators have to be quickly identified and held responsible rigorously. The backgrounds have to be fully clarified. We have also to think about how such hate emerges. How, at last, wars can be overcome and the hatred can be dismantled. A peaceful life together requires the will of all sides.
