The events seen in the previous week in Chemnitz are deeply disturbing. Reports of aggression and violence towards those believed to be foreigners, remind us all of how fragile tolerance and empathy are.
However, just like the 50,000 people gathered at the anti-racism concert in Chemnitz this week, we stand in solidarity with those who are working for a united world and against those who try to divide us.
As an international civil society organisation based in Berlin, our work is based on respect and tolerance for all. We aim to bring about greater solidarity between communities and across borders.
We stand in solidarity with all those affected by racism and support work that brings people closer together.
