Freedom to move, freedom to stay! Rally in front of BAMF, 6 September, 13h

The asylum-seeking population is mostly affected by the lack of opportunities, by the limitations of the state and its structures.
Their integrity, their identity, their lives are in mortal danger where they come from and when they arrive here they are met with indifferent and inhumane treatment by the BAMF and the Ausländerbehörde.

These institutions are not really interested in providing a dignified life for migrants, but in their public strategies and image to feed their white supremacist ego. In this way they evade and make invisible their political and economic responsibility, as one of the world’s largest arms exporting powers to the global south, as well as their responsibility as one of the territories with the most access to resource extraction in the world.

For this reason we call this protest in support of the migrant history and resistance in Germany and the refugee movement, which Napuli is currently leading at Oranienplatz, as well as the Colombian asylum seeker in Osnabrück who will chain himself to a court next week, trying to appeal his stay in Germany before the judge.

We will raise our voices together for the entire migrant population in Germany who suffer daily from colonial structures and global inequalities. We demand reparations and political and economic accountability, now!
