GERMANY: Mass protests across Germany for the rights of asylum-seekers and migrants
Statewatch News Online, October 2012
Two protests were organised in Berlin on 13 and 15 October 2012 against the German authorities policies on asylum-seekers and migrants. Thousands of people were present, showing the size of the refugee and migrant community and its capacity to protest and advocate for their rights together with German civil society organisations and individual activists. However, most of the demands are not specific to Germany and seem to reflect broader discontent with EU policies, whether it has to do with the reception conditions or deportations.
