German territory: Yesterday (October 11, 2018), with a color action on Stuttgart’s Marienplatz, we drew our attention to the daily bloodshed on the walls of Fortress Europe. Every day countless people die while fleeing. Tomorrow, Sunday, Ocotber 14, there will be a demo in Stuttgart. The demo starts at 05:30pm (17:30) at Schlossplatz.

By 2018, more than 1,500 people have drowned in the Mediterranean alone. And even if these conditions are not visible here on the spot, they concern us all.
Because the governments of Europe – especially Germany – tighten their “migration management” ever further. Border fences in Hungary, upgrading from Frontex or murderous reception centers in Libya. For people who want to save themselves from unbearable living conditions, this means an ever-increasing risk of not surviving the refugee route. They are the victims of human trafficking, torture and rape in the detention centers. They are the ones who have to use increasingly dangerous refugee routes. They are the ones who face the military apparatus in the Mediterranean. And despite all these threats, their reasons for getting started are more serious. War and armed conflicts are the number one cause of flight: In Syria and Afghanistan, Somalia or Sudan.
It is up to us to oppose the EU’s compartmentalization policy. Here on the ground, we must commit ourselves to a better world. Fortunately, the current deadly policies of Germany and the EU are also provoking protest and resistance. Some drive to the Mediterranean and rescue people from drowning. Others organize rallies and demonstrations to show their solidarity with refugees.
Here in Stuttgart this weekend – on Sunday, the 14th of October – there will be the opportunity to take a stand. On the day of the state elections in Bavaria, it should be made clear that a policy of racism, rearmament and division is not just accepted! Come by:
Sunday, 14.10., At 17:30 at the Stuttgart Schlossplatz
Stop fortress Europe – Stop the thousands of deaths in the Mediterranean.
For a world without war, racism and division!
