The organiser was Dutch Christian MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen, together with Open Doors and SDOK (Foundation of the Underground Church). He said at the opening, which was attended by more than 100 people: ‘The EU has a moral duty to credibly protect freedom of religion. The EU claims to be a community of values but is now too often silent on serious violations. The thousands of victims and families must be able to rely on EU action. As an economic power bloc, we must hold all countries accountable, such that all believers are free to practice their religion.’
