Headline: Avenues, flowers, women: This poem must not be painted over / Axel Springer protests against restrictions on freedom of art and speech

As a sign of protest against the demand by the student representatives (AStA) of the Alice Solomon University in Berlin to have a poem by the Swiss poet Eugen Gomringer removed from the front of their university building, and against a corresponding current resolution by the Academic Senate, Axel Springer presents the poem in its original Spanish version on the LED wall on the roof of the company’s headquarter building in Berlin.
As a media company whose identity and means of existence are based on the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press, we protest against this intervention in the freedom of art and poetry.
