Update on the refugee situation in Berlin #richardarmitage
Here. Interesting article about what happens to refugees when the social service provider responsible for them falls (perhaps justifiably in this case) under suspicion. More than half of the refugees who applied for asylum in Berlin in 2015 are still waiting for permanent housing. Meanwhile, in the city’s most recent parliamentary election, 14 percent of voters chose AfD (a far right party that is hostile to all non-Germans) and now holds 25 seats in the Berlin Parliament.
In the spring of 2016, Richard Armitage visited a refugee shelter of the Berliner Stadtmission. His report is here. Contributions to the work of the group he visited may be made here (in German) or here (in English).
