Six months after the racist terrorist attack and the violent murder of nine people in Hanau, relatives of the victims, survivors and supporters call for solidarity actions.
While you are asked to organize local events on August 19th, a demonstration and rally will take place in Hanau on August 22nd (13h Kesselstadt > 14h Freiheitsplatz).
Horst Seehofer continues to pursue his racist isolationist policy against the law and the democratic will of the federal states and local authorities. Furthermore he prevents Berlin from becoming a "safe haven". Come to the rally and put Seehofer under pressure!
This year, the CSD is largely virtual. From 2 pm the stream starts with political contributions, after that show acts will be transmitted. Only occasionally there will be small actions in Schöneberg and Mitte. In particular, there will be protests against the reprisals to which LGBTIQ*s in Eastern Europe are currently subjected. Parallel to the CSD, the Dyke*March for lesbian visibility will take place in Berlin, too. It starts at 15h from the Neptune Fountain at Alexanderplatz and leads to the Brandenburg Gate.
In the late evening of May 8, 1945, Field Marshal Keitel, Admiral von Friedeburg and Colonel General Stumpff signed - albeit reluctantly - the unconditional surrender of the Wehrmacht in the Soviet High Command Berlin-Karlshorst. Under the flags of the anti-Hitler coalition, Marshal of the Soviet Union Shukov, British Air Marshal Ted, US General Spaatz and France's General de Lattre de Tassigny signed the surrender document, which was thus ratified, at 10:15 p.m. According to Moscow time it was already 0:15. Radio Moscow reported on May 9 about the end of the bloodiest of all wars. On all continents, but especially in the countries occupied, maltreated and exploited by the Wehrmacht, Ordnungspolizei and SS, millions of women and men celebrated the defeat of German fascism. Not only tears of joy were in the eyes of many. There remained the pain of a bitter victory, the grief for family members and friends, the millions of victims of terror and war of annihilation. "Death is a master from Germany" is the title of Paul Celan's "Death Fugue", written in 1944 in Czernowitz. In the antifascist alliance with allies of the anti-Hitler coalition, the Red Army and the peoples of the Soviet Union carried the main part of the civil and military efforts. Their millions of victims remain unforgotten.

Emancipation means freeing oneself from expectations, stereotypes, physical ideal images and supposed standards. Emancipation means to fight - for the equality of all people. It is everybody's business.
