Description

On the 26th of January 2016, as the Danish government was passing the “migrant assets bill” rejected asylum seekers, immigrants and refugees, as well as people with citizenship in Denmark started a process of liberation. The “migrant assets bill” is the most recent effort to strengthen the systematic criminalization of asylum seekers and immigrants at the hands of the Danish state, and this is also part of a bigger, global problem that will not solve itself. It will only be solved through our struggle for liberation.

Our struggle focuses on camps—refugee camps, migration camps, migration detention camps, and asylum campsCamps kill people slowly, camps take away our rights and our freedom, camps are injustice and dehumanization.

We now take the struggle a step further, and continue forging our freedom: we will march from Tadhamoun Square to the Danish Parliament. They will have recieved an open letter from us where we present our points of struggle and our demands. We want to make sure they cannot ignore us, and that they see that we take the right to participate in the construction of a better society for everyone. We welcome more people who understand that our struggle is necessary and just to join us!
