kein mensch ist illegal hamburg

"Ihr sollt wissen, daß kein Mensch illegal ist.
Das ist ein Widerspruch in sich. Menschen können schön sein oder noch schöner. Sie können gerecht sein oder ungerecht. Aber illegal? Wie kann ein Mensch illegal sein?"

Dear people of St Pauli,

We want to meet after the game against Sandhausen on October 25th 
to show that St Pauli is behind the refugees of 
“Lampedusa in Hamburg”. At 8.30 pm we will assemble at 
Harald-Stender-Platze in front of the south
stand to move from there to the St Pauli church.

Many fans of FC St Pauli and people from the area 
have shown solidarity with the around 300 refugees of 
“Lampedusa in Hamburg” in the last few months. 
People are fighting and have fought with innumerable actions 
for a humane perspective. But the Hamburg senate has ignored the 
refugees and the solidarity movement!

But now the senate reacts – and responds with open attack!

It bullies the refugees for days with a racist “coursing” to 
initiate their deportation. It appears that the ruling SPD around 
Olaf Scholz has become worried because significant parts of the 
population don’t look away but support the affected people. 
Because of this, the senate now relies on “Law & Order” 
and deportation under the banner of lawfulness and cynical excuse 
to offer help.

Let’s together show our colours against racist persecution!

We are not going to accept this and will increase the 
pressure on our side. Let’s show the inhuman senate that we
 are more ! That’s why we want to take to the streets with many 
others after the match. We won’t be provoked so the security 
of the refugees at the demonstration will not be put at risk.

On Saturday (October 26th) will be furthermore an 
“International Refugee Summit” run by several groups in 
connection with FC St Pauli, which will include not only 
“Lampedusa in Hamburg” but groups from England and

Meeting point: 11 a.m. St Pauli church, 12noon

We call to everyone to join the national demonstration 
organised by
“Lampedusa in Hamburg” on November 2nd (2pm/Central Station)!

Kein Mensch ist illegal!
