A Statement of Solidarity
"We stand in solidarity with protesters against police violence in the United States. The demands in the US for fair treatment for African Americans, for the simple recognition that black lives matter, and for responses that address institutionalized racism have parallels here and globally. By this struggle, we are reminded that we too have a collective duty to ensure that all members of our own communities are supported and protected from harassment. Any form of discrimination, be it based on race, gender, or sexual orientation, is in contradiction to the values for which the WZB stands."
