Enough is Enough – Demonstration against homophobia – not only in Russia

stop homophobia

What a powerful message. From a small demonstration, the 7 Have registered individuals, has become an incredibly powerful symbol. Nobody knows in detail, how many people were on the streets on Saturday. Between 4.000 and 10.000 say the estimates – The truth probably lies somewhere in between. But it's also completely irrelevant, if at the end 4,6,8 or 10.000 People were there. Even there were a hell of a lot.

The flag came directly from Moscow

And they were there to demonstrate. The CSDs are of course still a demonstration, but of course also a party behind and on trucks, Frolic, Joy and struggle for the perfect image. In addition, most of the estimated numbers at the final concert for CSDs is because, for street party or standing on the edge. I'm not at all sure, whether on the Berlin CSD were actually more people on the street – But this Saturday were all there to demonstrate.

The logo of the Green Party was folded at the request of the organizers.

And – did not feel recognized. While there have been anecdotal banners from LSVD, the green or rainbow flags with the symbol of the Left, but in the back row and not dominant. On the other hand was the dominant rainbow flags. rumored they were in the last week sold out in all of Berlin and honestly, I think the, because so many rainbow on a pile it will probably have rarely been in a heap. True to the motto:

All Berlin a rainbow

enough is enough berlin

The organizers had, as they began the planning 200, 300, maybe 500 expected. But then the whole has taken such a drive and rolled over all. I'm not sure, if you really do not passed the info about the demo, if one is not somehow in the scene, but the major products in the world, I've noticed as well, as the interview at Radio Fritz in the early morning immediately after waking. When I saw and heard good weather, I knew, It is a good day.

I got ready, took my old Rainbow CSD outfit out of the closet, hung back, the wing, because it was not about the photo but the colors, put me in the car and drove toward the Russian Embassy in Linden, which at the time was still completely un-locked. The following symbolic photo was granted to me and therefore it would not have been at the end of the demo.

Interesting side story: this image was made by two tourists, I met outside the embassy and begged. It then turned out, that there were in fact Russians, I invited the, to ride with me in the taxi to demonstrate – and the like came along. Ergo: It does not have all the Russians have a problem with us.

Arrived at the demo showed up pretty quickly, it would be well, anywhere Rainbow, Posters, Slogans. A great picture, that is hopefully arrived at the right people, could, for example, even if the evening news or mirror it online under the table. what can you do. I definitely many, seen many people, which were taken and all the time always wrestled with the tears.

I myself was one of them actually. Tears of suffering are almost alien to me. Not tears of emotion. And at the very end as the demo with “Somewhere over the rainbow ended, it also recognized me. Otherwise, I had more of a smile festgetackertes, when I was waiting somewhere and could not see the front and rear end.

Of course at the end did the feet hurt, and of course I would have liked a little less road, but I see the symbolism of the old CSD distance from Kurfürstendamm via Schöneberg, Potsdamer Platz and the Brandenburg Gate to the Russian Embassy. In this respect “all right” and a great compliment, that it has come to this demonstration. To all. to the organizers, the police and certainly anyone in any regulatory agencies or such. Toll!

To the large end of the message before this was indeed locked properly, but unfortunately this is probably normal, draw when several thousand people to a message. Itself, if this has a completely peaceful nature.

The closing ceremony was also great. Russian human rights activists and, , seized on a TV show with his opinion about the Russian laws, Russian TV, and winter and some more.James Kirchick russian

A difficult position, however, had the Federal Government Commissioner for Human Rights Policy and Humanitarian Aid at the Federal Foreign Office Markus Loening. The anger and despair sat on many deep and he had to pay for. Here it is actually hardly blame. His office is a little of the Federal President. He may Dunning and talk but little decision-making power has or. Competencies. But he was there – and he represented the Federal Government.

The Highlite but, there was talk of co-organizer Alfonso Pantisano. 16 minutes, you should listen to views.

Clear, There were also a few things, did not run so, But these were all minor, which did not fall to be compared with the great organization and the great characters in the world. The whole ended with grave candles in front of the embassy, filed with rainbow flags and with a good sense of emotion to Judy Garland's version of “Over the Rainbow”.

Next Saturday then you can kiss Add to meet again at the Russian Embassy.

But a story needs to be told. The history of the flag, at the top of this article, which unfortunately I can only play very incomplete.

Regenbogenflagge aus Moskau in Berlin

This flag has seen much

I noticed this very battered rainbow flag in the demo. Dirty, torn, covered in blood and I wondered, what it probably would have to be. ..so I asked the carrier. He was Russian and could only communicate with me broken. But he told me, that this flag is not art. She was genuine and came directly from Moscow. She was at various demonstrations in Moscow and it looks like, BECAUSE she was going. Was dragged to her, People, they wore were beaten and jailed. But the flag is still in the process.

Although battered but not destroyed. …and it blows still defiantly and proudly wearing their colors in the wind. yesterday in Berlin.

For me, the symbol of the demo.

Crazy Burda? Bushido gets NEN Bambi

Successful example of Integration???
Rosenstolz, Lady Gaga, SASL!

Vollbildaufzeichnung 10.11.2011 003431-1

The Bambi, germany's most prestigious media prize has so few times already spawned comic winners, thus causing a stir, the avowed Scientologist Tom Cruise was such an example, that has caused some eyebrows.

This time, however, seems the jury by Hubert Burda, however, have rolled out their print products and snorted so weird to have white powder, because it comes in very creative and strange thoughts, terms of their award winners. By that I mean of course not Rosenstolz, which one can only congratulate. I mean the award of Bushido.

Ironically, the “Integration Award” Bushido gets missed by the jury and the related press release of Bambi actually contains the following sentences as an explanation:

"He is the most successful rap musicians in Germany and is an excellent example of successful integration.

Bushido campaigns against violence and for a respectful coexistence in a multicultural society.

As I asked in the title: Crazy Burda? You give a misogynistic and homophobic rapper a “Intergrationspreis”. This can not be serious.

Just as one example of many, here his song “Berlin“:

Berlin gets hard again, because we beat up every fagot

Berlin
It's my city, my district
you whore can go back home, now it's hardcore you sacrifice
Berlin
It's my city, you get updated very often for party, here no one is allowed to dance
my city is now ghetto

Go where you're from, that you do not come back
Tempelhof, Schöneberg, the, of your fucking songs
my city is the armor on the field
you can talk as you like, because I fuck your world
the party is over, Germany has again ne limit
it is quite normal, Men suck no dicks
Rap has no friends, Rap is not it colorful
bring me your response and I'll fuck you in the cervix
you are disabled, I do that all is well

If these statements calls “against violence and for respectful cooperation” display, Then I either have or you do not understand these. Frankly, I'm sure, not me but YOU have something extremely misunderstood… When an example of a “successful integration” is, I do not want to see a failed integration.

To mitigate the detected approaching wave of protests told her but in all seriousness for your decision:

Music is an art form, the conscious stylistic device of a taboo rape – whether one likes it or not.

Aha, are then prompts, To kill gays in “Artists such as Beenie Man or Silla” of dancehall and ragga as “conscious taboo and stylistic okay? And what is the exact difference, when a right-wing rock band of “Jews gassed” singing or sings when Bushido: “You fags will gasified”. I do not recognize the difference or any irony whatsoever and I'm sure, the listener can not both music. it would be nice, when the presenter explains this.

Honestly, is big bullshit.

Fortunately, the move not only me but thousands of others, and it moves a lot on the net, preferably on the fan pages of the winners like Gwyneth Paltrow, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga und Rosenstolz. And, when all hope for a reply from Lady Gaga, I'm actually very safe, that Rosenstolz drop mince words in her acceptance speech.

Smooch against homophobia

Generally I always have a little problem with it, crying out loud, somewhere when something happened, of which I know only one side of the coin… Now a schöneberger ice cream parlor owner has made two lesbians of the shop. This shout “Homophobia” he does not contest the eviction but explains this with a few other things. The Truth – perhaps lies somewhere in between, as so often. At least the next Pizzerei says, they had always problems with the ice cream parlor owner and they would distance himself from it…. Obviously, it seems so real to act on the owner of the cafe is a difficult person… According Manco was the whole probably not an isolated case, inofern is a protest entirely appropriate. Although I reject aggressive protest from. Creative, positive protest, however, I support without reservation. And these, there were in this case.

Under the motto “COLD SWEET – NOW IS smooching” should show the gay community, what keeps them. Namely nothing. Here, the useful (attention to homophobia and to demonstrate against) with the pleasant (unrestrained smooching) connect to. Great idea and a lot more attention than simply “Homophobia” screaming and licking an ice cream less.

That should not be there but eh, because according Morgendpost there were the following Microbiological results: Exceeded maximum Coliform…. In both senses there is therefore the consumption of ice is not recommended.

And when you see the pictures, then it was a very successful campaign, I can only support. And there were even rumors a natural rainbow flag in the sky in this action. Hut ab!

GinTonik feat. infection- – Emotional (EMO-DISS!)

Emo-Diss! GinTonik fest infected – Emotional

yesterday me somewhere and sometime the song Emotional feat of GinTonik. Infection went on the internet about the way. This – I completely unknown – Rap group sings about “Transvestitengesindel my Eye-Linern” and “SchwuchÃ, Â-stuffs in the drag queen Dress”… The stress is in the eyes. Idiotic lyrics and a great shot of homophobia.

[ःTnla6]

Now it is not about drag queens, but Emos and in the area I do not know myself honestly from. I do not know the music and I do not know what constitutes an Emo. But I must not, to recognize, that this “Emotional” Text is plenty of moronic GinTonik.

However, I do not need to think twice, that this teen rapper would certainly also what I am doing so not particularly approve. But that's me, too generally pretty bib.

I've been thinking for a while, if I want to write something, I have but decided, me that such a song by a band, I do not know, their hatred triads not even affect me directly, so no matter, not to comment on it further.

Then I found, however,, that song when I was listening to a movie on Youtube, made in response to this is the EMO DISS and I think pretty good. Some self-irony, something this bullshit rap music group and generally better than the first song.
