About the Karawane Munich

The Karawane for the Rights of Refugees and Migrants is an open, anti-racist, political group in which people, regardless of their origin and residence status, fight together for equal rights and a decent life for all. We want all people to be able to live where they want and live a free, self-determined life with equal political and social rights. Our actions are aimed at combating the ongoing deprivation of rights of refugees in the EU, Germany and especially in Bavaria by the European border regime, the violent exclusion of people by deportations and racist discrimination of refugees by laws and tightening up asylum laws.

Currently, there is a massive backlash in asylum policy. Many of the asylum policy achievements accomplished in recent years have been abolished in a very short time and the German government and the European Union are working meticulously to consistently exclude and deport people from Europe through further drastic tightening of asylum laws or deportation agreements.

With the political shift to the right and the agitation of right-wing populist parties such as the CSU and AfD, a new form of isolation and exclusion of refugees is being pursued in Germany and especially in Bavaria. Here in Bavaria, in their perfidiousness unique deportation camps are being created, asylum rights are being violated and refugees deported at all costs. The Caravan Munich wants to oppose political and social racism, which extends from the right to the center of society and is deeply anchored in the institutions. We stand in solidarity with all those who are discriminated against. We demand a right of movement and residence for all and we want a society free from authorities and oppression of others.

In concrete terms, this means that we organize protests and publicity campaigns, network with other political groups both in the city and nationwide and thus carry out smaller and larger anti-racist campaigns. We travel to camps to network and exchange ideas in order to hold joint political protests. This way, we practically defend ourselves against inhuman treatment, for example when we demonstrate together or try to prevent deportations.
