24.03.2013 Press release to the Refugees´Revolution Demonstration

Thank you all for the great demonstration with up to 5000 people!!

Press release of the protesting refugees in Berlin and throughout Germany:

Nation-wide mobilization more and more successful!
5000 at Refugees‘Revolution demo!

„The Refugees‘ Revolution demonstration of 23.03.2013 with over 5000 participants again sets a strong signal against our exclusion, isolation and inhumane living conditions. It is an unequivocal rejection of a government policy of ignorance, repression and blockade against our claims and actions.
Another major success of the r efugee-protestslies in the ever-growing participation of the self-organizing fugitives from many cities throughout Germany who followed our call(including Frankfurt / Main, Leipzig, Hamburg, Hannover, Braunschweig, Wolfsburg, Magdeburg, Passau, Regensburg, Würzburg, Nuremberg Bayreuth, Halberstadt, Bitterfeld, Halle, Munich, Karlsruhe, Stuttgart, Cologne, Bremen, Deutschland, Rostock and Kiel). No repression by state authorities against the one year long refugee-protests, no police attacks against the Refufgees Revolution Bus Tour could stop us. Neither denied leave passes through immigration authorities nor police checks during the journey to yesterday’s demonstration with temporary detentions took effect.
And we are more and more every day. We have come to stay! (mehr…)
