16.09.2017: Antirassistische Parade / commUNITY-Carnival in Berlin
Bus Wiesbaden – Berlin – Wiesbaden
We are many more than we guess. One week before the German elections, we will show up on the streets and be loud. We want to tell our stories – stories of flight and deprivation of rights, authorities and racism, welcoming and staying.
We ́ll come united: For politics of solidarity. Together for all – on September 16th in Berlin!
The demonstration will start on September 16th at 13:00 in front of the Ministry of Interior in Berlin (near the main station). The closing event will take place at Oranienplatz.
The parade will consist of different thematic wagons: against deportations, for the right to education for all, Solidarity Cities and much more. There will be speeches, stories, music and everything you bring as pictures and symbols with you. The only things we want to leave at home on this day are national flags: it will be all about equal rights for everyone, no matter where we are from!

Legal information for the demonstration on September 16th
Please take with you:
- your identity document
- something to drink and eat
- medicines (if you take medication on a regular basis)
In Germany everybody is allowed to attend a demonstration. It is completely legal and will not affect the outcome of your asylum procedure.
However it is possible that the police will check the ID cards of persons at the demonstration. Therefore you should definitely carry your ID-documents (for example Aufenthaltsgestattung, BüMA, Duldung, Aufenthaltserlaubnis).
Probably there won ́t be any problems with the police at the demo. Nevertheless a phone number will be distributed in the buses. There you can call if you unexpectedly have a problem with police during the demonstration. Then you can speak with a lawyer. But we think, that there won ́t be any problems.
Can everyone go to Berlin?
Most of the refugees are allowed to move freely in whole Germany. They can travel everywhere. If you only go for two days to attend the demonstration, you don’t have to inform the Ausländerbehörde.
But some refugees have a Residenzplicht (residence obligation). That means that they have to stay in the federal state where they are living, or in the town or the district where they live. They are not allowed to travel everywhere in Germany.
- Residenzpflicht affects all refugees in the first three months in Germany.
- Residenzpflicht affects all persons who still live in the first reception camps.
- Residenzpflicht affects some persons shortly before a deportation.
- Residenzpflicht affects also some persons who had problems with the police.
- Or problems with Ausländerbehörde.
The Ausländerbehörde writes in the personal document of those persons that they are not allowed to move freely in Germany and to travel everywhere. In case of Residenzpflicht in your document is written: Räumliche Beschränkung.
Who has a residence obligation and wants to join the demonstration in Berlin, please ask us for advice and we will discuss your personal situation.
