On January 7, 2005, Oury Jalloh and Layé Konde, both of Africa, lost their lives at the hands of the German police. This video tells the story of how Oury Jalloh burned alive while chained at hands and feet to a fireproof mattress in Cell No. 5 of the police station in Dessau, Germany.

Even until today, the authorities have sustained the thesis that Oury Jalloh set himself on fire. Refugee, migrants and anti-racists supporters have fought hard for the last 34 months to see that justice is done. Although successful in forcing a trial, the proceedings have been plagued with racism, cover-up, complacency, bias and impunity. It still remains a mystery just how exactly the fire in Cell No. 5 actually started.

After almost 60 hearings, the trial is now slowly coming to an end, with the verdict expected on December 8th. The only outcome which can be expected is the continued injustice which has characterized both this case as well as the treatment of refugees and migrants in general.

Nevertheless, the struggle continues and, perhaps with your support, we will still see that the truth is made known, that justice is done, and that the family of Oury Jalloh is compensated for having tragically lost the life of their beloved son.

But however the outcome, the struggle itself is already a victory for all of those who have fought and continued to fight it.

BREAK THE SILENCE!
