Call for donations for Abdalah

On Tuesday, 7th novemeber, Abdalah was deported to Ghana. Together with five refugees, he had filed a lawsuit against the house rules at the Freiburg initial reception camp (LEA) in 2020. The case is still pending before the Freiburg Administrative Court. This is a protest against the deportation mania and calling for donations for Abdalah.
Normally, the German state has to prove to refugees in the asylum procedure that they were not persecuted in their country of origin. As Ghana is classified as a so-called safe country of origin.
Homosexuality is a criminal offense in Ghana, and there have been repeated police attacks during demonstrations as well as intimidation and punishments against independent journalists.
