Hundreds expected to attend protest for Gambian refugees

A newly formed organisation in Germany, No Deportation To Gambia, is targeting more than 500 people to attend a peaceful protest gathering over the German government’s decision to deport Gambian refugees who lost their bid for asylum.

In a statement, they revealed: “The objective of the demonstration is in line with the German President Steinmeier's visit to The Gambia where he announced that 1500 undocumented Gambian refugees residing in Germany are awaiting deportation to The Gambia.”

According to the organisation, the peaceful protest will take place on Saturday, 23rd December in Stuttgart Hbf.

During his recent trip to The Gambia, the German leader, Frank-Walter Steinmeier disclosed 1500 Gambians who lost their bid to remain in Germany are set to be deported.

“Steinmeier's visit was basically aimed at convincing Barrow's government to accept returnees from Germany and even elsewhere in Europe by enticing them with Patti-Projects and cash Euros,” wrote No Deportation To Gambia in a Facebook post.

They accused President Adama Barrow of throwing Gambian refugees under the bus to please his German counterpart, who promised his government would support some of The Gambia’s development projects.

The protest is expected to start by 12 PM.
