The federal government aims to implement its migration and refugee policy promises in the coalition agreement of the SPD, A BÜNDNIS 90/DIE GRÜNEN and the FDP in a total of four legislative packages by the end of 2023. On 6 July 2022, the cabinet adopted the first of these so-called migration packages. They promise to stand for an improved migration and refugee policy, using terms that sound good such as “opportunities”, “participation” or “respect”. However, these buzzwords do not correspond at all to the real situation and are also not provided for in practice in the planned migration laws. The coalition is further sticking to the previous principles of migration and refugee policy that are characterised by “security concerns”, “burden on the social system”, criminalisation, isolation, racist discrimination, disenfranchisement, dozens of hurdles for the granting of residence rights, readiness to take in refugees only if there is political and economic benefit, etc.
We think opportunities, participation and respect look different. That is why we demand from the legislators a right to stay for all instead of an opportunity trap!
At the information event, we would like to take a closer look at the trickily formulated draft laws. We would like to get a better overview of the practical effects of the planned changes for migrants and refugees in Germany and present our campaign.
We hope for a broad, supra-regional cooperation with refugee organisations and supporters!
• The event is in German. Whispered translation into English, French and Turkish will be provided on site. We will also try to offer other languages.
• In view of the increasing numbers of covid-19, we would like all participants to wear a medical or FFP2 mask on site.
On 07 October 2022 at 16:00 we also want to protest together against the migration packages in front of the Bundestag to send a strong signal for real opportunities!
