“I support that the Magistrate has taken this courageous and necessary step. The planned Roger Waters concert should not take place in a city like Frankfurt, which offers no room for anti-Semitism. We hope that other cities will follow our example and cancel the concerts there as well,” said Britta Wollkopf, spokeswoman for cultural policy.
Volt im Römer welcomes the Magistrate’s decision to instruct Messe Frankfurt to cancel the Roger Waters concert.
Volt Frankfurt: the political party
Volt Frankfurt is part of Volt Europe, the first party that is the same all over Europe. In Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, we fight for a progressive, sustainable and united EU. We work according to the motto: Think global, act local.
Nearly one million people live and work in Frankfurt. The challanges we face are shared with over 100 Million people in metropolies all over europe. Volt stands for the urban living of tomorrow, using progressive and pragmatic solutions.
We want to implement concepts that were already proven successful in other european cities. Be it lowering rents like Vienna, cycling like in Copenhagen or digital gouvernment services like Estland: we want to solve Problems, instead of just pushing them to the next election cycle.
