Time for Justice – Decolonize Hamburg
We want to draw attention to the racism that we as black people and people of color witness day after day with our motive trolley, which will be represented on the parade under the motto “Time for Justice – Decolonize Hamburg”.

With our truck we want to articulate the burning topicality of the issue, as it is the real source of global injustice, which continues to be based on exploitation, oppression and enslavement, and is supported by a colonial, Eurocentric, racist and capitalist world view.

Afrique Europe: Interact!
Concept: “The limit is the problem” and “For the right to stay and the right to go”. Our criticism of the EU border regime and its governors in African states is illustrated by a wall of shoeboxes.

We are destroying the wall / border regime with common political actions and solidarity! The theme becomes tangible on the parade through a play. There are also banners, a music program and speeches by activists from West and North Africa and Europe. Organizers: Network Afrique-Europe Interact (AEI)

We want to appeal that we no longer see people in Europe and the world watching as other people fleeing war and misery die in the Mediterranean and at the borders. We are many”. Racist and right-wing violence does not belong on our streets.
The shift to the right in Germany, with all its facets, not just Chemnitz or Köthen, should persuade us to show more than just the flag.
