Letter to the Editor

Secure self-determination!

First of all, I would like to thank all the letter writers for their information on the referendums.
The Self-determination Initiative is necessary and will determine the future of our country. When the Confederation was founded in 1291, the Federal Letter was drawn up. It begins with the words “In the name of the Lord, amen” (“In nomine domini amen”). Among many other things it says that Swiss confederates should judge Swiss confederates and not judges of foreign rulers. Our Confederation has been in existence for 727 years, as has the above proven recommendation. It is still valid today. Citizens, think about the responsibility for our beautiful country and vote! With a “Yes” we strengthen our independence.
