Activist Grigorij Richters arrives at the Brandenburg Gate on December 9
Berlin, December 5. He made one Million Steps for refugee children. Activist Grigorij Richters arrives at the Brandenburg Gate on December 9. The 31year old German filmmaker began his journey on October 27 in Paris. This upcoming Sunday he will finish his tour through 27 European cities. His goal is to save 1,000 unaccompanied children who are currently stuck in Greek refugee camps and to give them a home in Germany.
The situation of the children is so dire that “some are trying to commit suicide”, Richters reports. “Some of the children are forced into sexual acts in order to get basic things like water”, he adds. His initiative is being supported by 17 German cities. He met with 15 mayors who have promised Richters to give the children a home. Now the German Government has to act. Today he is meeting with the Vice President of the German Bundestag, Petra Pau.
Over the next two weeks Richters will meet with 30 German MPs and high ranking politicians from every party to find a way to save the children.
Join him on his final steps this Sunday:
At 1PM he will start at the Hackescher Markt and end up at the Brandenburg Gate by 2:30PM where he will be greeted by the state secretary Sawsan Chebli. Over 100 participants are expected which include German MPs. All details can be found, here.
Richters is supported by QUEEN guitarist Dr. Brian May, the Kelly Family, Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, Tennis legend Martina Navratilova, Oscar winner Dame Judi Dench, Olympic swimmer Yusra Mardini and actor Stephen Fry.
