Taube noted that now is the moment when politicians and citizens of the European states must show their solidarity with the condemned, and a way to do this is all European capitals to put the ‘You are not alone’ symbol on the facades of their town councils. The ribbons should be worn also by all European Ministers, to show that the Bulgarian nurses and the Palestinian doctor are not forgotten, he said.
