Solidarity Statement from Prof. Dr. Encarnación Gutiérrez Rodríguez and Dr. Shirley Anne Tate

Solidarity with the Refugee Strike in Alexanderplatz

We raise our voices in solidarity with the Refugee Strike in Alexanderplatz
and support their demand to be recognized as “refugee” as defined by §23 of the German Residence Law.

Every Human Being is entitled to a dignified life. The persecution, incarceration and criminalization of people just trying to search for a better life, as White Europeans have done in the massive emigrations in the 19th century and still continue to do today, is not a crime. Europe’s colonial past and imperial wars are intrinsically linked to the need to migrate and flee from economic collapse and violent conflicts. We demand an end to all dehumanizing politics and a recognition of asylum as a Human right.

In Solidarity,

Encarnación Gutiérrez Rodríguez & Shirley Anne Tate
