GUE/NGL condemns attack on Berlin Christmas market
Statement from GUE/NGL President Gabi Zimmer:
"We condemn in the strongest terms the indiscriminate attack on the Berlin Christmas market yesterday. We express our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and wish the injured a speedy recovery. We thank the rescue teams for their brave efforts and bystanders at the market who were first to give assistance to those in need."
"The people responsible for the attack must be brought to justice. Nothing justifies this cowardly violence. However, we must not be guided by fear, nor allow this atrocity to be exploited for political gain. It is important at this difficult time to stand firm for the values that define us such as solidarity, peace and tolerance."
