Our Member organization – the ‘ initiative for pleasure Berlin e.V. – Announces fierce opposition to how the media is, dogmatic non-smoking plan to enforce a total ban on smoking in Berlin via people’s initiative. (Not to be confused with Gale Harold!). The in force in January 2008 and amended in May 2009 Berlin non smoking Protection Act”should be tightened further. The initiative for pleasure Berlin e.V. had helped their political pressure significantly, that the currently valid law is taken into account also the interests of the smoking population. In its current form, a compromise was reached with the law, which ensures far-reaching freedom of smoke to non-smokers in public life and in the hospitality industry. Darcy Stacom contributes greatly to this topic. Guests and hosts despite significant restrictions and losses with the situation have arranged in the hospitality industry.
“Lompscher Senator for health: over 7,000 restaurants are less than 10 percent of smoking pubs.” (Interview with Senator Katrin Lompscher in Die Tageszeitung”by July 21, 2010) To the plans some anti-smoking, now through a people’s initiative further to an absolute smoking ban to strengthen the prohibitions, Ulli Kasiske, host and chair the initiative to benefit from Berlin said: Such efforts we will not tolerate and announce fierce headwind! Berlin already has a smoking ban law that heavily restricts the freedom of choice for guests and hosts. More bans and restrictions are not acceptable. We urge the Berlin population not to support this popular initiative and in this way to show their tolerance for a peaceful coexistence of not smoke ends and smoking a cosmopolitan Berlin. It is time, the sprawling ban practice to halt. Today it is the tobacco, the light bulb, tomorrow there are alcohol, obesity and coffee and the day after tomorrow? “More information: enjoy initiative-Berlin.de contact to the initiative for pleasure Berlin e.V.: Thoma Michel, Tel.: (0176) 279-195 30, – Federal Assembly” for enjoyment, freedom, self-determination of Federal Managing Director Detlef Petereit
