Our children are also humans.
Called by Together We Are Bremen alliance, activists met in front of Bremen registry office this morning, to demand that babies born in Bremen to refugee mothers shall be given birth certificates. Although Germany has ratified the UN resolution on children's birth rights, these rights are constantly being violated by local authorities. Without legal documents, refugee children born in Bremen have no access to health insurance, infant screening or vaccines, and later, no access to education. Birth registration is the passport to protection. This violation of rights is clearly racist.
Edit: On a lighter note, my day ended with a dip into Werdersee and afterwards drumming/maestring practice.
