Tower Block Quarantine / "We are also humans"
The Corona pandemic hits those who are already marginalized the hardest. Some families of more than 5 people share 40 sqm 2-room flats. (Social distancing is impossible here.) A mixture of social legislation and real estate speculation are the causes of the precarious conditions. The reporting on german media, like e.g. BILD, is partly characterised by racist stereotypes. Since the first days, a sign has hung on the Groner Landstrasse to remind bypassers: "We are also human beings." According to the "Göttinger Tageblatt" at least 2 families want to move out of the Groner Landstraße immediately despite Corona - to protect their children. They want to enforce this judically.
For up-to-date information I highly recommend the Twitter account @gronerland, which transports the voices, fears and observations of the residents of the building.
