Between the Acts
To the President of the European Parliament

The opening dance is still a vivid memory. Yes, the people's parliament was inaugurated with a dance. The black dancer slowly awakes, waving her veil with grace, charm and strength. It is high time for her to rise up to new life: Kairos.
Fortress Europe creates two classes of people, citizens and non-citizens. We cannot accept this division. We had quite a lot of trouble getting entry visas for some participants. Some were refused them, and others were with us notwithstanding. They entered illegally in order to attend our meeting. That was a step towards destroying Fortress Europe.
