The German parliament has always been a place of controversy and debate, but it should never be a place for racism and xenophobia. Which is why we go out onto the streets. On the 22nd October in the government district. Join us and send a signal against racism and hate.

Many initiatives engage with the demonstration. To alleviate this, we would like to cover part of the cost in solidarity through crowdfunding.
Currently, an estimate for cost of Demo and After-Demo Party is impossible. Any surplus in donations will be distributed to the participating initiatives.

What is this project all about?

Since 1949, the German Bundestag has been at the heart of our parliamentary democracy – as an arena for freedom of speech and controversial debate. But this year as the newly elected Bundestag convenes on October 24th it will mark a turning point: for the first time since the 1950s, right-wing extremists and racists will take their seats in our Parliament, as members of the new AfD group.
We risk seeing xenophobia, racism, hatred and resentment being stirred up from the speaker’s podium. Those who deny our history could use it to downplay the crimes of the Nazi regime. Shrill voices will incite hatred against refugees, foreigners and dissidents,
declaring it the will of the people. Other parties could be pulled towards the right.

We cannot and will not remain silent in the face of this. On Sunday October 22, two days before the first session of the new Bundestag, we will encircle the Parliament with thousands of people of all ages, origins and political beliefs. Our message is clear: whoever uses the Bundestag to spread racism and discrimination or to distort our history will meet our united resistance. We’re taking to the streets for a tolerant and diverse Germany.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

We need everyone to make it happen: active citizens, a vibrant civil society, associations, politicians of all parties, unions and other initiatives. Join in, invite your friends, colleagues and family along, and together let’s take a stand against racism and discrimination in the German Bundestag on October 22.

Why would you support this project?

Above concerns us all - the 87% of the voting population who did not vote for AfD. Our vocal demand towards democratic values is needed!

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

We plan to crowdfund a minimum of 10,000 Euro to finance a part of the cost of the demonstration. Thereby, we suggest that we all carry a part of the cost, in solidarity and to celebrate our coming together. Since we cannot envisage the funding gap at this very moment, the demonstration and the After-Demo Party will benefit from more monies raised by this crowdfunding. However, when all costs are covered, any surplus will be forwarded as donations in equal parts to the participating initiatives, movements and associations.
