Water cannons took away Dietrich's sight, let's give him a voice

by richardroaf in London

We did it
On 18th February 2014 we successfully raised £1,140 with 65 supporters in 7 days

In 2010 Pensioner Dietrich Wagner was permanently blinded by a water cannon in Germany. The Metropolitan Police are trying to introduce water cannons to England and Wales even though they admit they’re capable of “causing serious injury or even death.” The only way to stop this is to let the public know the damage that water cannons cause. On February 17th, there is a public consultation meeting in London and Dietrich wants to travel from Germany to tell the truth about water cannons. We need to raise £950 to cover the cost of Dietrich attending with his wife.

Thanks so much to everyone has help us reach the target so quickly. We were amazed to see so many people care about helping Dietrich and are delighted to be able to fund his trip. We now have enough money to pay for Dietrich's travel and accommodation but any additional money given will be put towards the campaign against water cannons. Thanks so much.

Marloes, Richard, Rebecca, Isabelle and everyone else involved.

About the campaign.

We are just a group of concerned people so we don't have any budget. We need to raise £950 before the 15th February to cover the cost of Dietrich and his wife Erika attending. If we don't raise this money then Dietrich will not be able to attend.

The money will be used for:

Return flights for Dietrich and his wife from Stuttgart to Stansted £470.00Internal travel in Germany and the UK £230.00Food for Dietrich and his wife £80.00Hotel £170.00

Total £950.00

Please note that if, after booking the travel, Dietrich is no longer able to attend for unforeseen circumstances e.g. ill health, then we will attempt to refund the travel or failing that, we will use the money for the campaign against water cannons.

Thank you so much for any support you can give,
