Lampedusa-in-Hamburg refugee protests escalate: An update on recent weeks of protest

Tonight comprised the culmination of over two weeks of huge protests in the city of Hamburg in support of the Lampedusa refugee group. Over 9,000 people took to the streets to show their support for the migrants and to demonstrate against the racist and dehumanising stance that the city has taken against the 300-strong group. As well as many undeclared demostrations throughout the next weeks, the main mobilisation from the group is for a city-wide demonstration on Saturday November 2nd.
