For the second time in a year, we felt the urgent need to draw attention to the inhumane situation on the southern U.S. border. Since our first protest in 2018, the situation has only intensified, sickness and deaths increased, and a real solution still seems nowhere in sight. But not doing anything is also not an option, and a least these vigils all over the country have shown our solidarity with democrats in the U.S. who are investigating and testifying.
Thank you to all of you who came out to stand before the U.S. Consulate in our candlelight vigil against this human tragedy. And thank you once again, Chesney, for giving eloquent voice to our collective grief.
