Why we are organising a protest march

Refugee Protest March München to Nürnberg30th of September, 2016

24th day at Sendlinger Tor

On the 8th of October, we are going to start a protest march from Munich to Nürnberg to protest for our right to stay, and against the discrimination by the Bavarian integration bill.

Why is Nürnberg the destination of the protest march?

The head office of the federal office for migration and refugees (BAMF) is located in Nürnberg. We will go there, because this is the place where they decide about our asylum applications. On our route we will have stops in ten other Bavarian cities in order to have the chance to make our protest more public every day and to mobilise other refugees, just as being able to get more support in society.

Why are we walking?

We came from different countries and have travelled thousands of kilometres to get here, so we will continue moving until we get our rights. They deny us our basic human right of freedom of movement. For people who are at the beginning of their asylum process, the place of residence is allocated, and people are obliged to stay at this place. Also refugees with a ‚Duldung‘ are forced to tell the foreigners’ office where they are staying all the time. People with a residence status are not able to decide where they want to live.

Why are we demanding the right to stay?

All of our demands are included in the right to stay. We are demanding the right to stay, to work, the right to education and the right of choosing our places of residence. All of these are citizenship rights, and that’s why our main demand is the right to stay.

Why are we protesting against the Bavarian integration bill?

We, as a self-organized group of refugees, want to show that we don’t agree with the Bavarian integration bill, and show our resistance to it. Here is just one example from the draft bill: They are planning to start racist border controls in front of public buildings such as swimming pools and libraries. In doing so, they would minimize our freedom of movement even more.

 

For the protest march, we need your financial support to be able to attain our goals. A call for donations can be found .
