In Düsseldorf about 1000 people marched to state parliament and demanded from the state government of Nordrhine-Westphalia (NRW) to stop deportations to Afghanistan. Some other German states are already considering to stop the deportations. The civil war in Afghanistan continues but the federal German government started deportations into the war zone in December 2016. Activists said: “Although the German federal government is saying that Afghanistan is safe, German ministers always show up with helmets and bullet-proof vests when they visit Afghanistan.”
