Racism is Becoming Normal in Germany

There is a new racist movement on the streets of Germany. These people who call themselves Pegida (patriotic Europeans), gathered ten thousand people to the march hold in Dresden. Now they do these demonstrations every Monday and start in other cities as well. The racist movement included a very small amount of people until today, but now the number increased to ten thousands.
The starting point of this racist movement is Islamphobia. They say “We do not want the Islamisation of Europe”. They legitimized themselves through demonstrations against ISIS. Football team fans massively participated in these demos. Now there is also participation from different groups in society.


The arguments this movement bases itself on are the national values, Euro, the discourses against the EU as well as being against migrants and refugees.
While the racists show up on the streets massively, they also violently attack refugee resistance and refugee camps.
Some of the refugees from the Oranienplatz have started a new resistance in Hannover. There was a long-lasting resistance on the roof. Last week, all of their tents were set on fire, all the tents have burned and one of the refugees from the tents has been injured.
During the same week, an almost-done refugee camp building has been set on fire. All the buildings have burned down and a huge amount of financial damage has been declared. There were no refugees in this camp yet.
In Marzahn, the racist demos against the refugee camp have been hold regularly. Those racist demos there started to become chronicle.
As we obviously see also in European Parliament elections, the parties refering to racist arguments started to increase. In Germany, AFD has raised as a legal party which shows similarities with the Pegida movement. Moreover, this party started to attract voters from the leftist party and the other Nazi parties. People suffering from the inconsistencies of capitalist system are tending to the racist parties. The system, from an anti-communist perspective, creates religious movements and uses them in order to legitimize the racism. Capitalist imperialist system once goes hand in hand with the movements it created and once confronts with those. So that, the system re-uses this means through updating their roles.
The Nazis threatened to kill one of the left party deputies just because of supporting the refugees. The deputy demanded protection from the police office and declared her worries. The liberals who marginalize the members of the anti-fascist struggle as being “extreme-left” also started to be afraid of the racist rise. Indeed, there was no one but communists who stand against the Nazis to stop them, and they were called “extreme” as well.

WHY ARE WE HERE?
Refugees from Chad hold a panel discussion titled “Why Are We Here?”. All the speakers were chosen from refugees from Chad. Supporters have served as translators. Most of the translations were also hold by refugees.
They introduced the history of Deby movement, the dictatorial regime of Chad for many years. All the dictatorships in Chad and military coups of them were supported by France. The deal between the dictator regimes and France is based on the oil resources.
People who fight against the dictatorial regime are prisoned, disappeared or murdered. Deby regime allows only the press agencies who support itself to make propaganda. No other press is allowed in the country. The oil resources and other resources of the country are channeled to French imperialism via the dictator leaders while the people are driven into suffering in hunger and into crushes within themselves.
The refugees from Chad who experienced the situation explained the history and imperialism in Chad well to the audience.
In the same week when we were criticizing the academics in Osnabrück University, we gave the same examples. Imperialism could be explained in the best way by people who experienced this exploitation, pillage and dictator regimes and who fought against it. If the dictatorships are sharing the benefits with the colonial superiors, there would be no problem. In this case colonial powers prevent the democratic developments. One of the talkers from the panel discussion pointed out that France does not support democratic developments in Chad, because the dictator leaders are doing well for France by sharing the oil and other sources.
Our three friends arrested in the police raid to the school in Ohlauer are still in prison in Moabit. The lawyers said that they may stay there for a longer time and police can arrest more people.
The solidarity with the arrested ones is going on. After we lose our comrade Mimi on the same day with the police raid to school, we made a big march for her from Oranienplatz to Ohlauer School. We made people listen the speeches of Mimi from her own voice. Everybody was sorry about the loss of Mimi. Her body will be sent to Kenya to her family for the funeral.
We memorize Sibel Bulut who became immortalized by her participation to the resistance in Kobane which is against isolation and fascism. We wish the women’s struggle in Rojava would serve as a model to the feminist movement (which lacks a perspective) in Europe.
