“We are moving to peace” – Ebersberg

The horror of the cruel war in Ukraine is also great among young people. Children and young people, but also adults – including many local politicians – expressed their longing for peace and solidarity with the people in the war zones on Friday evening in Grafing at a peace march. “Let’s go to peace” was also the request when the approximately 700 demonstrators set out together to march through the city, led by the HotStix. The mood was very peaceful and relaxed, but not happy. Even the smallest of the demonstration participants seemed to be aware of the seriousness of the situation. During a minute’s silence, the participants commemorated the many victims of the war, which has now lasted more than two months. Ulrich Proske and Christian Bauer, the mayors of Ebersberg and Grafing, sharply condemned the war in their speeches and thanked the people in the district for their willingness to help Ukrainian refugees. Two teachers organized the peace march: Stephanie Scharfenberg teaches art and religion at the secondary school in Ebersberg, Diana Kühnlein is a religion teacher at the primary school in Ebersberg.
