Copenhagen: Antifascist May 1st demonstration
Tid & sted
There is something rotten in Denmark
The 1st of May we take the streets with the message that something is rotten in Denmark, to show resistance against capitalism, patriarchy, fascism and all other systems of oppression, that limit the freedom of all. The Danish state is using minorities as scapegoats to try to divide us and legitimize the active degradation of everybody’s living conditions. Especially migrants and refugees are these days targeted by Danish politicians, who, across party divides, are competing in adopting the most racist and inhumane reforms. But we can’t be divided. Instead we stand together to show that we have had enough.
Common for all of us is that our living conditions and possibilities are restricted by capitalism. We experience daily oppression and repression because of our class, genders, sexualities, ethnicities, religions, ideologies and cultural traditions. And we want a society in which we welcome migrants and refugees, and don’t accept the Danish state’s active participation in forcing people to flee, through aggressive war policies and insufficient climate policies. We fight for a world where everybody has equal rights and possibilities in life, where nobody experience oppression and repression from the state. Therefore we will use this 1st of May to gather a variety of extra-parliamentary and radical left groups and organisations to further connect our struggles. We want to build new alliances based on internationalism and solidarity and together fight to overthrow the system and build a new society.
