Nine peo­ple were mur­de­red in Hanau on 19 Febru­ary 2020 for racist motives.

Hanau joins the ranks: Again and again there are racist and anti-Semi­tic attacks and mur­ders in Ger­many. Racism and anti-Semi­tism are also omni­pre­sent in ever­y­day life. For exam­ple, BIPoC ⊕ are often affec­ted by racial pro­fil­ing ⊕ and police vio­lence, espe­ci­ally in the nearby Frank­furt sta­tion dis­trict, while at the same time right-wing extre­mist ›indi­vi­dual cases‹ are known in the police and right-wing par­ties are elec­ted. Last but not least, socie­tal racism also includes the dying at the EU’s exter­nal bor­ders and the decis­ion of Euro­pean mem­ber sta­tes to deny basic rights to peo­ple see­king protection.

The crime scenes

The crime scen­ces, the shi­sha bar, ano­ther bar and the kiosk in Hanau, are mee­ting and lei­sure places where, among others, migrants or peo­ple read as such meet. At the same time, they are small busi­nesses that create income pro­s­pects and jobs. This is true for the places in Hanau as well as in Frankfurt’s Bahn­hofs­vier­tel, which is very close by here. These are socio-eco­no­mic­ally mar­gi­na­li­sed places that are racia­li­sed ⊕ and pla­ced under gene­ral sus­pi­cion by the press and aut­ho­ri­ties. On 19 Febru­ary 2020, they became crime sce­nes.  


The pro­test move­ments that have emer­ged, the initia­ti­ves as well as the cohe­sion of the com­mu­ni­ties have shown what struc­tures of soli­da­rity can mean. The rela­ti­ves and sur­vi­vors orga­nise and sup­port each other. The »Initia­tive 19 Febru­ary« has crea­ted a mee­ting space in Hanau and says: »We are foun­ding an initia­tive to give soli­da­rity and the demands for cla­ri­fi­ca­tion and poli­ti­cal con­se­quen­ces a per­ma­nent place. We will not allow 19 Febru­ary 2020 to be swept under the car­pet — like the count­less right-wing mur­ders before it.«
