We call on all refugees to join the nationwide refugees protest march from Wittenberg to Berlin to break the isolation and to liberate ourselves from the state repressions. We will disobey all racist and discriminatory rules of the German authorities or institutions as we set the new order of solidarity to restore our dignity: We are breaking the obligatory restriction of movement that criminalizes our physical presence and our existence as refugees and as human beings.
Enough is enough!

Background information on the refugee strikers
The refugee protest march to Berlin started in Wuerzburg on the 8th of September 2012 after months of refugees protest against the inhumane treatments of refugees to condemn the human right abuses against the refugees and the decades of underdeveloped asylum policies of discrimination and criminalisation of refugees in Bavaria state and the federal republic of Germany.
The refugee movement emerged as a reaction to the suicide of Mohammad Rahsepar in March 19th, 2012, who couldn't bear the burden of the misery imposed on us in the refugee lager of Würzburg anymore. Since then there have been nation wide tents of refugee protest actions and hungerstikes to express the solidarity for a better situation, for the basic demand to restore the dignity of refugees and for the freedom of movement for everybody in Germany by the refugee strikers.
On Thursday, September the 13th at about 10:00 Hrs the refugees proved their independence by destroying their personal identity documents and crossed the former inner German border. With this action they break the Residenzpflicht and continue their way to Berlin.
