(en) die plattform: One year after the racist terror in Hanau - remember the victims, fight racism! (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Sun, 28 Feb 2021 09:27:11 +0200

Today it is exactly one year since a right-wing terrorist in Hanau murdered nine people for racist motives. Since the attack, those affected and their bereaved families have been organizing remembrance and awareness-raising work to prevent the names of their murdered relatives, like the names of so many other people, from simply disappearing in the state statistics and being forgotten. Since the crime, rallies and demonstrations have taken place across the country in order to get the message and demands of those affected through and to make them heard. ---- Even today, on the first anniversary of the attack, despite Corona, thousands of people across the country will be on the streets again to make it clear that they will not forget the victims and that they will continue to demand: Remembrance! Justice! Enlightenment! Consequences!

Because far too little has been done since the attack to actually prevent racist terror like the one that took place in Hanau from repeating itself. The state, whose authorities are itself full of racists, is characterized above all by inaction. We shouldn't be surprised, the state has always distinguished itself above all by maintaining and even creating racist conditions, not by combating them. Let's not forget: it is this state that is deporting people even in the pandemic. Even now he leaves those affected by the attack alone.

Furthermore, let's not forget that all the struggles against racial discrimination have not just started since Hanau. For a long time it has been led mainly by those affected and also by activists. Every day, those who are discriminated against and excluded have to defend themselves against the institutions of the state. This starts with, for example, racist police controls, shows up in the poor processing by the police and judiciary, or in the poorer opportunities for social participation and professional advancement. This is only a small excerpt from the everyday problems of those affected. There are victims of right-wing violence inGermany there since 1980, when neo-Nazis murdered Ngoc Nguyen and Anh Lan Do. With the victims of Hanau, we should also think of the number of people who have suffered in the past and who still have to fight against discrimination and exclusion on a daily basis. In most cases this is a consequence of the failure of state politics and the lack of will of the so-called white majority society to deal with the situation of discriminated and marginalized people.

So the solution is anti-racist self-organization at all levels. The aim is to build a movement that denounces and combats racism in everyday life and in the authorities. We owe it not only to the victims of Hanau to work on this, but to all victims of racist violence.

In memory of Vili, Mercedes, Said Nesar, Gökhan, Sedat, Fatih, Ferhat, Hamza and Kaloyan!

Fight racism in everyday life and in the state!
