UPDATE After government circles repeatedly insisted in recent weeks that the EU-China summit in Leipzig should take place as planned, the German government spokesperson announced on June 3, 2020 that the summit would be postponed.
A new date should be found fast. Leipzig is to remain the host city. It took some time to realize that even heads of state and government and several thousand employees and journalists cannot be protected from the coronavirus at such an event. It was probably also important to the German government and the European Council that it did not look as if the postponement of the summit had anything to do with the current decisions of the Chinese state leadership. Despite the new security law for Hong Kong, there was only increased commitment for the summit.
Postponed is not abandoned.
In spite of the uncertain date, we are sticking to it:
When the time comes, come to Leipzig to attack the summit together with us! No rest for the rulers – not here in Leipzig and not elsewhere! No to the EU-China Summit!
More information will follow. The preparations continue!
