Taking a stand against xenophobia and intolerance

Iris Gleicke, Commissioner for Eastern German Affairs 
"The situation in eastern Germany is complicated - and these demonstrators are a minority. The vast majority of those who live in the eastern states are neither xenophobic, nor right-wing extremists. But this majority has become a 'silent majority' - and I would appeal to them to speak out."
