Tram against euro-skepticism – that is how the action of HVIDRA of the city of Zagreb and the war veterans association of the Zagreb Holding could be called. Today they ceremonially let the first EURO-Tram into traffic.
Painted in the colors of Europe with messages of unity this tram is a strong message for the European integration – estimate all of the representatives of the City, State and of the institutions and parties who answered in a large number to the invitation from war veterans of Zagreb Holding.
Today we are sending out a message to the Croatian public and the European Union that the City of Zagreb, Holding, the special police association Krovna, HVIDRA of the city of Zagreb and the community of the war veterans association of the Zagreb Holding are all for the entry to the EU. All we ever dreamed about in 1991 was for Croatia to be in the NATO alliance and in the EU. We lived to see Croatia in the NATO and we are hoping to see Croatia in the EU – said Mirko Ljubicic the president of the community of the association HVIDRA of the city of Zagreb.
The project was founded only by the Croatia war veterans with the help of the President of the Republic Ivo Josipovic.
Boris Sprem, the president of the City assembly, has mentioned that this was a good message from the war veterans who are showing that they are supporting Croatia entering the EU and with that they are proving the continuity of making right decisions just like in 1991.
- It is extremely important and good for HVIDRA and the veterans to express such a strong message. They give us the moral strength for bringing this job successfully to an end, to sign the treaty, for a successful referendum, for all of us to give our vote for the EU membership – said Gordan Jandrokovic, a minister of foreign affairs and the European integrations.
It should be mentioned that the Zagreb’s mayor Milan Bandic concluded that the number of political elite members is conditioned, above all, to the pre- election times. Ending his short speech with a message: Together in war, together in peace.
