STOP STOP STOP COLONIALISMUS STOP
We are gathered here today to protest against the brutality of both the governments and societies of the European countries who for too long now are carrying out crimes against humanity against the very people whose forced displacement has been in order to put food on your table, gasoline in your car, rubber soles in your shoes, coffee in your cup and chocolate for dessert. In short, we are here today to protest the continuation of colonialism and its deadly effects on so many millions of lives.
am Do., 10. November 2005 in Berlin, Demonstration gegen die Kriminalisierung des antirassistischen Kampfes
With the arrival of the Europeans to Africa, Asia, and Latin America a process was set off whose momentum –even over 500 years later—continues to this very day and which has been characterized by theft and destruction, rape, genocide, and perpetual slavery. From the day that Europeans set their feet on lands which do not belong to them, they have persistently and violently attempted to impose their dominance and the banning of all those non-white from the human race.
