Where is Christian compassion among Europe’s Christian Democrats? Their leader Manfred Weber keeps parroting the script of the far right. He wants more border walls – paid by the EU.
Fortress Europe is not solving Europe’s challenges. Dehumanising migrants and pointing the finger at people fleeing conflicts and misery is a familiar dirty trick of the rich and powerful.
Our Europe stands for democracy and human rights. This means stopping the degrading treatment of people and the blatant human rights violations at Europe’s borders. It means that people in need can apply for asylum. And that we keep building an open and thriving Europe instead of spreading fear and resentment.
We call on the European Commission not to fund any border walls with EU money.
