WE SHALL OVERCOME – STOP THE WAR IN UKRAINE NOW
Dear members of EUSAAT and SCIENTISTS AROUND THE WORLD,
The Mothers of World War II, who had lost their men in 2 World Wars, and the Children of the War established the European Union in order to ban wars in Europe FOREVER.
Children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren have enjoyed to live in peace for decades in a society characterized by a prosperous economy, progressive science and welfare for everyone.
For scientists in united Europe, borders do no longer exist, and provided, e.g. for members of EUSAAT, the European Society for Alternatives to Animal Testing, unlimited scientific collaboration and exchange of ideas, in particular, at the Annual EUSAAT Congresses.
The war in Ukraine has not only stopped peace and progress in Europe, but it also poses a threat to the freedom of speech and ideas, which are essentials for all scientists.
Therefore, EUSAAT is encouraging scientists around the world to stand up for peace and against the war. Scientists must speak up and encourage politicians to stop the war now and we should unite under the ANTI-VIETNAM anthem of Joan Baez “We shall overcome..
To demonstrate that the EUSSAT society is confident that “WE SHALL OVERCOME” and that the war in Europe will be over soon, EUSAAT is sponsoring the participation of 3 scientists from the Ukraine in the EUSAAT 2022 Congress this September in Linz Austria.
We are also encouraging scientific institutions to hire scientists from the Ukraine with high priority.
