on June 19th - 22nd, 2004 at "Gendarmenmarkt" in Berlin/Mitte
against the criminal practice of deportation and the persecution
of Togolese and Cameroonian political exile opposition
by the German state.
Since the beginning of this year the persecution and deportation of refugees from Togo has increased massively. The peak level so far was the mass-deportation of 18 people from Togo and 26 from Cameroon, who were deported from Amsterdam under participation of Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, France and the UK. Germany was involved with the deportation of 15 persons. During the night of May 25th/26th the political refugees from Togo and Cameroon were forced, against their protest, to enter a plane (Eyewitnesses stated it was a KLM airplane from the Netherlands) by the use of beating, pepper spray, dogs, plastic shackles and the new model of the "Deportation-Torture-Helmet" (These new models were presented by the German Home Office, after Amir Ageeb had died of suffocation because of being brutalized by border police and the use of a bike-helmet during his deportation in 1999).
