ALDA mourns the death of Paweł Adamowicz, Mayor of Gdańsk

 ALDA mourns the death of our friend Paweł Adamowicz, the Mayor of Gdańsk, a true European.

"Farewell Paweł , an incredible  person, a friend and inspiration for all those fighting for democracy and human rights", said our Secretary General Antonella Valmorbida. "ALDA, EPD and myself worked with him for many years, in particular for the opening of the latest Local Democracy Agency in Mariupol, Ukraine. He used to say that Europe gave him and Polish citizens so much after the end of the soviet era, that he felt the moral responsibility of supporting neighbouring countries and their people.
I had the chance to be among his friends. We wanted to work this year for supporting the European Parliament elections campaign and further involve young Europeans. For those who don't know what Gdansk became with him in his capacity of Mayor, you should definitively check it out. He also promoted the creation of a Solidarity Centre dedicated not only to Solidarnozc movement, but to all freedom movements fighting for democracy against despotisms. I am close to his colleagues, his wife and daughters.
Farewell Paweł , I wish you could rest in peace. I will and we will all miss you immensely", said Valmorbida.
