The AfD getting into parliament reveals another low of the society-wide, reactionary, völkisch development that has been happening for years.
Basic rights – as the right of assembly – are being more and more clearly restrained, e.g. at recent protests, and those who choose to protest have to expect repressions.
Once again, discriminatory opinions are officially allowed to exist in the daily life in Germany. Especially the way the NSU complex was dealt with as well as the attacks on refugees, the uncountable number of people who died at European borders and the cutting back on refugees’ rights displays the racism and anti-muslim racism prevalent in Germany.
Moreover, debates about pregnancy terminations and sexualized violence highlight the severity of anti-feminist demands. Lesbians, gays and trans people also have to fear a backlash of traditional ideas of marriage, gender and families, which could lead to the withdrawal of the still incomplete rights they fought for, e.g. in regard to marriage, adoption and ID cards. The demand to end forced operations on intersex people recedes even more into the distance.
The election outcome solidifies the by the ‘Bundesteilhabegesetz’ legalized deprivation of rights of disabled people. Now, there’s no more talk about more improvements for those discriminated against, but instead the already few and hard-won human rights are being challenged. People pay with their lives. Every day.
We won’t accept these inhuman conditions any longer. We demand and create a society in solidarity, a society of many.
We are able and allowed to create our society ourselves, so join forces with us and let’s take to the streets for a self-determined future – perceiving, appreciating and celebrating our differences on an equal footing.
Stand in solidarity. Take care of each other. Listen to each other. Organize.
Let’s start to make the society of many reality in our daily lives!
