I had the pleasure of working together with Lojze Peterle, Tunne Kelam and Jaromir Štětin to host the Dissidents, Ludwika… Wujec, Henryk Wujec and Zbigniew Janas in the European Parliament.
The event was also attended by students and NGOs.
Freedom can not be taken for granted. One must remember who risked his life for independence. For 80 years in Estonia truth meant real freedom. Today is the opposite – we need to change it for the better. We are grateful to all who have shown courage and energy in change in the communist countries, have overcome totalitarianism. We need a clear history memory to avoid past mistakes in order to avoid violence. You can not have a free Europe and forget about the past at the same time.
Exceptional discussion with exceptional people, thank you!
