Alwan for LGBTIQ Rights together with Queer Refugees Support Hamburg is organizing and other queer (refugee) organizations from around Germany and beyond! So far, groups from Hamburg, Hannover, Bremen, Mainz and Minden will be joining us on the 29th! More groups will still be announced!! We would like to invite you to build this queer block with us in the demonstration! Here is a summary of all the important points: What: The antiracist demonstration will bring people and organisations together in the streets of Hamburg to symbolize the resistance against right-wing fascist politics! We will unite together to demonstrate our solidarity, our strength, our resistance, our power! This parade is an opportunity to network with other organizations and individuals. This parade is an opportunity to link people looking for support to the correct resources! 40+ Trucks have registered for the parade this year!! Last year in Berlin more than 10.000 people participated! This year, even more are expected to unite together! http://antiracist-parade.org/ When: The demonstration starts on Saturday, September 29th at 12pm at the Rathausmarkt. Sleeping: For those traveling to Hamburg from another city (or country): we have arranged a safe sleeping space for LGBTIQ* individuals in a gym at a school. If you need a place to sleep between Friday and Sunday, please E-Mail firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot. Please bring your own sleeping bags, mats etc. Theme of the truck: "Love ist not a crime" This is the text as it appears on the We’ll Come United website right now: “Not only war and poverty force people to flee: Even laws that punish non-heteronormative sexualities and gender identities force people to flee their home countries - often also so-called "safe countries of origin"! LSBTIQ* groups have joined forces to draw attention to the situation of queer people who are not sufficiently protected in their countries of origin and therefore not granted their human rights. United Against Racism. United Against Homophobia. United Against Transphobia. Groups involved so far: Alwan for LGBTIQ Rights, Queer Refugees Support Hamburg, Lesbenverein Intervention Hamburg, mhc Safe Space Hamburg, Rainbow Refugees Mainz, SVLS e.V. & together e.V. Mülheim, Queer Refugees Hannover, Aidshilfe Düsseldorf, Rat & Tat Bremen, LGBT Refugees Minden, Lesbisch Schwule Filmtage Hamburg | International Queer Film Festival” Distribution of information: Info material: Feel free to bring flyers, print outs, or other small material with information about your organization – we will have a place for it on the truck!
