The plans for the mass deportation of people revealed by investigative journalists have sparked widespread outrage in German society. However, they came as no surprise to people who experience racism here on a daily basis: political and media discourse surrounding migration and refugees, as well as people with a so-called migrant background, has been racist for many years - and not just on the right-wing fringe. The tightening of asylum laws in recent years fits into the same picture. At the same time, people who are racially vilified and discriminated against are wondering how long they can continue to live safely in Germany and where they will go if the mood continues to tilt to the right. Others have already taken this step and emigrated to an African country, for example. The event will focus on the perspectives of two people who deal with these discourses and developments professionally and would be affected by the deportation plans of a political camp.
