Public Story
Black Lives Matter Protest in (Northern) Germany
After the killing of George Floyd sparked protest against racist violence across the United States, activists in Germany march in solidarity with the protests in the US. Their goal is to also draw attention to the structural discrimination and violence against BPOC in Germany.

On June 2nd the group "Together We are Bremen" called for a protest in the northern German town. More than 2500 participated. In speeches the organizers drew attention to similarities of racism and racist violence in the US and in Germany. Some of those protesting live in the refugee shelter Lindenstrasse and stated: “Our fight is to end all inhumane practices! ... In this world there is a place for everyone! ... You go to Lindenstraße and you cannot hold your tears! ... We want everybody to live!” Others speaking reported about their early childhood experiences with racism in school. The powerful demonstration ended with music.

Protest in Hamburg in front of the US Embassy in Hamburg and in downtown Hannover will happen in the upcoming days. This series will change as protest in Germany develops.
