“NATO must be dissolved. Security cannot be created with the military but through social and global justice. War hurts hatred and nationalism. That is why the fight against war is closely linked to the fight against racism. Islamic hostility is the new racism and accompanying music of the so-called war on terror.” (christinebuchholz.de)
