With more than 30.000 participants the “We’ll Come United! Anti-racist parade” in Hamburg last Saturday was probably the biggest antiracist demonstration which ever took place in Germany in such a mixed composition.
We know already that September 29, 2018 will be the most beautiful day of the year. It will be our day. We are many, we are different and we struggle every day on our doorstep. We’ll all come together in September. We will come to Hamburg by car, train and bus. From villages and towns, from camps and shelters, from welcoming initiatives and aid organizations, from construction sites, schools and universities. With soundtrucks, performances, lyrics, music and carnival we’ll chase away the cold, the racism and the heartlessness from the streets of the city. Together we’ll draw a picture on the streets: the picture of our friendship, the picture of a diverse and fearless life in solidarity. When we move, the world moves!
German authorities have at least 3 deportation flights scheduled for the coming week. The planes will depart from Düsseldorf, Germany. Activists announced protests against the deportations.
