25th Anniversary Of The Fall Of The Berlin Wall

EDM number 498 in 2014-15, proposed by John Mann on 10/11/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Europe and International politics and government.

That this House recognises the significance of the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall; notes that before the momentous events of 9 November 1989 at least 138 people were killed trying to flee to West Berlin; further notes that there are many victims of the Stasi who still suffer from the trauma caused by their mistreatment at the hands of the East German Secret Police; believes that the dissidents in East Germany who bravely protested against the oppressive GDR regime dealt a decisive blow for freedom by exposing the realities and contradictions of life under Communist rule; and calls on the Government to increase its efforts to promote freedom and democracy throughout the world.

This motion has been signed by a total of 30 MPs.
