07.04.2021: Justice for Rita! Abolish all Lagers!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is image.png

Our request for a rally to honour the memory of the day our sister Rita went missing, was refused by the police. The reason was the high rising Corona infection cases in the district of Elber-Elster.

For us, to mark this day this day was and still is very important because of the many unanswered questions surrounding the disappearance and for our campaign “No Lager for women and children, Abolish all Lagers!”. We will not accept that refugee women should simply disappear into thin air and the next thing you know is that their charred remains are found 200 meters away from these isolated lagers.

This is why we decided to involve a lawyer to appeal for the rejection. Time was not on our side at that time. Nevertheless, a small group of us decided to travel to Hohenleipisch, hoping that the court would grant permission to hold a rally in front of the camp before we got there.

On our way to the camp, we were stopped by the police and asked if we were going to the rally and if so, whether we were aware that permission to hold the rally had been denied. We said yes, but told them that if it wasn’t allowed in the next hour, we would light our candles and place our flowers in pairs and then travel back. We were told to hold on while they communicated with their superiors. We were lucky because at that same time we were discussing and trying to negotiate with them, they had just received the court decision allowing us to make the rally.

Thus, our mission to Hohenleipisch was accomplished, despite some extra rules such as not playing music, dancing, etc. which we had to abide by.

For this achievement we would like to thank the lawyer who tirelessly did such a great job and of course to all of you for your solidarity and support!
