To be or not to be

Shakespeare is so out of fashion. But still good for a quote.

Halb zog sie ihn ...

... halb sank er hin. That's Goethe. Not really progress over Shakespeare.

Freiheit ist immer ...

... die Freiheit des Andersdenkenden. Now that rocks. Thanks, Rosa!

The most revolutionary thing one can do is always to proclaim loudly what is happening.

Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung

Fighting for a Fair Society

The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung is one of the six major political foundations in the Federal Republic of Germany, tasked primarily with conducting political education for progressive social development both at home and abroad. The Stiftung is closely linked to the German Left Party, Die Linke. Since its founding in 1990, the Stiftung’s work has adhered to the legacy of its namesake, German socialist leader Rosa Luxemburg, and seeks to represent critical thinking and democratic socialism with an unwavering internationalist focus.

The Hanoi office of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung Southeast Asia embraces a mission of supporting the transformation of countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar into participatory, socially just, and ecologically sustainable societies. The RLS SEA Regional Representative Office in Hanoi opened its doors in April 2009 and currently cooperates with around 15 partner organizations, including academic institutions, universities, non-governmental organizations, think tanks, government institutions, and parliaments.
