i know nothing. just sometimes but nice and loving which. means thinks deep into the german culture looking at the stereotype that in years think the future of the country that i not. yet needed to be taken a scrum a day out to eat it's all out there. i'm rachel join me for me for gemma sunday. post. for you from the rewards. long. long long. history book it's dangerous to think that we couldn't lose our freedom
again but we need to remain vigilant if we don't it could be taken from us step by step. to get out. of the mix as many semitism racism xenophobia whatever form it takes it has always existed and always will be it's up to us to decide to stop these processes and it's our responsibility. the little being on my believe there are many ties that bind young europeans together if we're fighting for a better united europe in which everyone has the same opportunities when they are not must go so long.
we're going to underestimate our generation. but me you new wave of activism across europe and that's going to give me hope. pretty rough for me but i just must be you know what i used to take piece and what i value about europe for granted you get more than ever i have a sense that it's actually something where young people need to fight for. consumers.
who caused the holocaust have you ever heard this with the full. model just not. you have never had it before ok. how bad are what a good missing daughter was born to a jewish mother and a non jewish father the nazis called people like him misha meaning a mixed race or half jews. that's why he wasn't to cause it to a concentration camp straight away like many others and managed to survive on top so once you are going to protect what he had to do for slave that was the event what's your impression of god he reminds me of my granddad ok yeah ok was that the smile. he looks wait. a little but i met. a guy who looks pretty old but he looks intelligent. i know the jewish people
weren't allowed to do certain things i thought everyone from back then was dead but they're not there that's what i learned today. i was just. this mystic thus it's important that young people know what happened know her better that it never happens again. and this is not my posse it is this here it was much worse than a 100 lines to what my mother used to tell me what happened one day i'll tell my own children about it because it's important to know my allowed to invite the strongest for them i. wasn't all but you're trying to be the current government has managed to instill a fear of immigrants and the general public the idea that they bring to xeno's and
pose a threat for national office was a garage right now turning people against one another and inciting fear for just the worst. just terrorists my gosh. her response when you know most of the year was funny about this guy but they cut it up thank you thank you i keep such close to shore she was casual just the toll we are placed on the toughest pitch i saw develop outside of a lot of the illegality. i . began to chuckle that i'm just that's in that we have a serious problem with nationalism and the government except that we're seeing a growing number of attacks on the street and of people because of their background
all sexual orientation as if that allowed it as it's well know it's a. tough illness i saw was that i just am instructions like these patriotism has been used to stir up hatred against anyone who in matthew doesn't belong to that although the most i say is an example of how poland's right wing is trying to control the political narrative yes focus focus also there's a latent aggression and i sense that the situation could escalate at any 2nd of that statistic that i'm getting out of here just didn't say this isn't the right place to try and find common ground just to give it there's no point in seeking a dialogue with this lot. of us made myself.
along with the us has not seen a lot of young people in athens and greece grew up with the idea of a united europe social movement and only a europe that offers everyone equal. all opportunities are open most of it is go. overboard but now i wonder if that was a europe that never really existed to open. up to the moment though this was the part of the radios it's the biggest in the country and one of the biggest in europe. has cost the when the 1st huge wave of refugees arrived in 2015 a reception center was set up here at the port misses them on the. inside saw this scene and this ports are symbols of the journeys so many people
undertook to reach europe from turkey on the compass and unfortunately also of the deaths of many people of the stiffest of many of them drowned when their boats capsized. this situation has improved but ultimately greece has been left alone to deal with the problem because it's not the be so to speak your opinion has taken a step back because of the visual. limitation of the baikal just to consider the figures we're talking about a 1000000 refugees who came to the e.u. the which is home to 500000000 people. doesn't because they owe it all all personally i see immigration more as an opportunity than a threat. when
you believe in yourself that things need to change now and the one else is doing it and it's too responsibly to do it and in the worst situation you fell and you try again. i was 22 when we created which is a plan you can put it. before i could actually have a real voice in politics i could have waited an extremely long time if i joined a traditional party really i could have but i think that this is a religion. when you look at global challenges like migration flows climate change fiscal justice we don't have a choice but to deal with those issues that you can.
avoid the what actually means energy the unit of measure of energy we want to end it and but it takes but most importantly the same way that you know every single night when you see how awful it's. all behind the same. increase in polls as a result. 6 there was so many wrong things happening and we really for the confident was going the wrong direction you know the rise of my hand up in france in germany the far right was also rising and it kind of came together and on their feet ok let's you. and me. so he started to work on the idea for a bit and i was talking out and then we met a man who joined. we had to create national parties to be able to run for the actions but we were running on one program.
europe's younger generation is waking up 70 percent of votes members have never been politically active before. they're responding to populism with us. vision of a tolerant to 90 year olds he's pushing for greater solidarity among the space and an economy that seems so environmentally sustainable yes 6. i i think 2 worlds a kind lighting here in the middle of warsaw where demonstrations of pro european liberals and polish nationalists taking place side by side the police are out in force but the also watching israeli crack down on racist or anti-semitic rallies i think so grassroots activists blocked far rights marches so that the russian penalized thanks to the police i feel
i lived actually wasn't it's not that we can't express our opinion or demonstrate against the government but increasingly you then face consequences if you're shot and might be searched one morning or you might be arrested as a demonstration that i thank you for now the justice system is still in the pendants and we're fighting a legal battle to protect our rights but even the fact that this fight is necessary and we have to take it to the cool this is a worrying development go beyond china and have fellow lawyers do pro bono work on behalf of people who find themselves having to defend their basic rights against the state. i was just i went professional notch this is about the rule of law and you know as lawyers we help ensure there's a fair relationship between the powerful state and ordinary citizens who suddenly
find themselves facing a court battle of stereotypes on them opposite so they are letting the facts thank you very fulfilling work. helping is more gratifying than the moment in court when you hear the words sakia course. it's the defendant on all charges it's just a hotel it's a family look at each other and feel very proud of ourselves but there are threats here there's a. dear mr potter we were very moved by your story. we were shocked by what you had to go through nowadays people are also discriminated against because the best skin color or their religion. to them your story has taught us that we need to be more aware of these issues here. isn't starts off so we have my i have the courage and
strength the test for you to share your story with us. i'm also writing a book about my journey to germany and the difficulties i had in my own country. if you're interested in reading my book you can have it sent to you by the high mark zuckerberg association. best wishes lean hard like to read it. comes the moment. so yes that's. how awful. this is. and is it to me for him as. a moment he's very touched by these letters this year to you are going to. this generation is growing up and i hope that when they start playing a responsible role in society bill improvement. and the filmmaker diverse and welcoming society is a society that truly values human dignity that's. really version yes.
he. thinks. he can you did so i remember a time where no one would listen to us and our boys. this is were silenced on. the surface. this internets were the last of this generation. to house better rights we need to realize what that means and rise to the task. now are like the concentration camps themselves we the survivors are the last witnesses to what happened there that we need to think about and i will remember it even when there are no eyewitnesses left screaming.
i think mothers democracy. many layers especially nothing serious nowadays. if i look at the movie received from the land so journalism i think democracy is under threat media in greece are not independent nowadays. boron's with the media began during the financial crisis. as the guard called compatible luckily my many jobs were cut and many journalists were forced out because they didn't comply with the agendas of their new bosses when i'm at dawson fertile. soteris was one of the generalists who didn't comply in 2015 he launched an english language website about life in greece in the
wake of the financial crisis athens life the nonprofit project is part of an international network of independent media the refugee crisis began shortly after its launch. visited the refugee camps to report on the situation. a little around the time the 1st big wave of refugees arrived in 26 team journalists had relatively easy access to the refugee centers it wasn't hard to get in to interview the people there. you. see them in this field model here in the refugee camps there was a group of 15 young women from afghanistan. tell the media counts of their story. still so they decided to become journalists themselves and give the
refugees an authentic voice. so. at the 1st move very just. they said that. after 8 months. the men off they come came to our son said how well they read. and just. for us. and. i think it's was the. us. because we were to change the mind of afghan men about. the choice to name our new space bets on to list the. week with fly that would be flying in space. with spain if i lived in germany.
nombre was votes candidate in france. but her dream of securing a seat in the european parliament never got off the ground. she blames the french political systems complicated administrative rules. when you vote in germany and in almost every european country you do this on a single ballot francis difference you have one ballot per party and this means that parties are responsible for printing their own ballots in the 1st place and. the parties so to print but it's for your connections it's amounted to
approximately 1000000 euros which for a new political party is almost impossible and i did the fact that we couldn't open a bank account for a very long time because the financing those particular situations are so strict that every bank refused so we couldn't open a bank account so we couldn't collect money to print ballots which meant that we couldn't run over our campaign. it's extremely difficult to accept that because of some really messed up rules and the lack of democratic will from the government you have to stop so it was for me it was heartbreaking to have to start this way you know not being it i think because you can convince people it's one thing being stopped by you your own country and the system in place from being able to represent others and for me able to partake in society is heartbreaking. colombe remains undeterred she's continuing to work on behalf of votes in other
european countries in london she's campaigning for andrei events on who had initially planned to run for election in italy. but to a new part. he has little hope of getting anywhere. he knew that it would be a logistical nightmare was to run across europe because you have different ecosystems and the systems to run for elections and it is the case that we can run in countries but we can't run in many of his. mobile. my grandfathers and grandmothers or people coming with me here even be able to stay in the same room after the civil war and now we are. brothers i can never imaging a war on these on this continent is something that only brought us and that we
should die for you for sure paul. i don't believe in you because it's you but i think it's just the best solution we have. this is an amazing project that generations need to make sure you. know me from the moment people nationalist movements so far right sponsor there's a reason for it i don't agree with it but this can you reason puts people on the dump put on a mean if they're going to such extreme put it it's because one they feel a bit like this. when you have a part of the population that is suffering from hunger that doesn't have access to housing. that's not
a peaceful society. for their life. and i have prayed for the security. beyond time is also campaigning for a fairer society she worked some behalf of victims of the housing crisis. out of a hole in the boys start up here it needs more social justice 1st there's a housing crisis across europe we need a europe wide mass movement calling for a right to housing it was benefit everyone. just what. is 80 she's lived in this apartment for the 70 years now she's been given notice. that it's almost all of the renters have had to move out already that i'm one of the last has left that i'm continuing to face. the landlord is doing everything in
his power to force me out i mean i've been intimidated i've had nasty phone calls in the middle of the night that all i could hear were strange noises as if someone was telling me i would be hung out to dry that. but it would miss the crunch gets very hard to protect someone against a forced eviction or an extreme rent times like this or the law isn't really on the side of renters were fighting for the right to housing to be recognized as a human right the author was devoted. to that jane you've heard this in the past we lawyers don't usually go on picnics with their current services but we've known one another while i'm out of them since they were the 1st renters i represented i remember how nervous and stressed i was for us but that's never support it bonded us we've come a long way since then but we've stayed friends in the. capital most of the audience
has helped was invaluable without test support i would have fled into debt and actually the move back to school days as some people had stuff. heart attacks because of the stress if we didn't have be out and working for us for free we have all ended up sleeping under bridges in the magic. decision where that's out of the public and looking with elderly people i'm with people who have no money keeps me grounded context when you see social inequality firsthand don't see the desperation you motivated to keep up the fight the christians in the war. on saturdays so today's meets up with a young journalist outside the refugee camp together they plan the next edition of the newspaper. then the whole muslim world out to craft
a brilliant articles and win a pulitzer prize it's about young people coming together and learning how to express themselves whom our guys this is omar with us talk about your article. are from iraq and something new or old to catch me through all. your articles called for 4 hours that's talking about is the 1st one if you know where you got the attack by the certain group so that's my little. has no back up of letting our newspapers brings together different nationalities and religions almost all have a project like this would never be possible in the countries we come from yes because of racism and religious differences that it was known that. you're interested in go to welcome everybody this is another show of the record on
the lie on. go through. with the newspaper project the young refugees have also started a podcast i. share in it they explore questions such as. what does democracy actually mean. people are living here since 15 years 20 years i think 30 years but i asked one of the persons there are you walking this year and he said no i cannot because i mean granted we have don't have the right toward an election in european elections so what we should do as a society for their integration into their new society. i was with. my family 1st arrived in germany people gave us so much help my parents
were clueless they couldn't speak the language they didn't know they had to register or where they had to go to do so i remember an elementary school teacher who was just amazing she knew that my family and i had come from russia and never felt like an outsider and that's how i'd like it to be for people today. and if they ask if rejection and feel the 1st things you encounter then things aren't going to go well. as was a fun. about 6 months ago or maybe a bit longer i was in the metro with my friend anna and a group of men i got in and then on the line one of them had a bottle of beer saying yes i did tipped it over some guy's head and insulted him in a racist way assistance but i just. thought it was very aggressive and things i just instinctively stood up and challenge him.
on the bank the 2 things that bothered me most with that no one else got involved. and it made me very sad that the guy had to go through that and just shrugged it off in a resigned way as if to say. you know this kind of thing happens to me every day when i don't want to. discuss it maybe even talk. some other times. smile with any gestures of support from other students when a business call anyone at all night. and phone me go hard not or didn't i want to help a friend noticed no one helped we had become social outcasts. you just are all for as you're from europe we envisioned in 1905 was a different one it was a europe that would grow together. unified.
i won't hide your words. but i also have faith that today's younger generation will try just as we did in the studios to shape a better world. but so in that sense. i am optimistic about the future of europe and of course it's. only. illegal for the time being is unable to vote in her own country for the party she co-founded. in france votes remains a distant dream. but none of the established parties give the since she's looking for. michael michael is that how their basic cringes when mccrone started out i hope that he would present a new political vision. pretty soon as i soon realized he didn't have
a political program and suitable these were close to me and that is but one of the reasons i was drawn to the idea of it if this be just the one i saw happen and was a kind of populism even though his populism share some of my value was just about all political point you just. don't have the room ok i was a possible way to have confidence that today one of us will have a seat in the european parliament whether in germany bulgaria or elsewhere at the end of the day that's all that matters because i had hoped that we could stand in france and italy to france are inevitable i will run next time. hi everyone i just voted in the european elections you can actually put who votes in 8 countries so make sure that you go out and you have
a good day. to have more to be told because how time passes and which initiate you get to that's not a tree some still beat you. on this journey you have a particular style points out of stuff that you possibly can be put into a channel. and you see you know it so why hasn't. the train which is something that you don't expect to see enough to know what it means to.
recall events or history doesn't repeat itself in exactly the same way but human nature is what it is man. it won't be long before the last holocaust survivors have died. samia believes that makes memorial sites all the more important they document the atrocities committed by the nazis. on the annual walk from auschwitz to birkenau thousands remember the dead and pay their respects to the survivors are right i survived for 3 long as it's today. doesn't feel a lot of the show's alive so we hope that so many people from all over the world gather here for the annual march of the living and have been doing so for about 3 decades. that's my passion it ensures that history is remembered and the stories will never be forgotten i believe.
it's really too much believe and i'm very touched by the students and the one of them pointed out that the science people are carrying on like gravestones for people who were denied them even if you're happy. for. i feel this can help survivors a lot of spirits are good you knowing that young people are interested in them in their story and what they went through right. now they help out exactly out there mr gordon said that he hopes our generation will fight for a society that respects the dignity of all and welcomes everyone you know. the
message i'm getting today is that i will vote for him with me. even without the payload right now democracy is in crisis so it's all the more important that we journalists support independent projects such as migratory birds and our nonprofit website while the more we boost the end media the better it is for democracy you can you give him about the amounts. we'll. just. put i mean that i'm pretty excited. we've been working towards this for 2 months. in the finally i get to pick up a new copy of our newspaper. then when i would if this is the only newspaper by and
for refugees you can buy in greece i'm very happy that it's going to build up. its numismatic paper gives a voice to people who haven't been heard so far. with this project we're helping change the public's view of refugees for the better we get mail from readers who say that the newspaper has even made them reflect on their own lives of goodness maybe. they now do that on some days i feel very tired. i feel like what i'm doing with my activism goes far beyond the call of duty. and i think wow it's a lot of work but at the end of the day it's very gratifying it's the 1st month. ever here. and.
i think. that's. a. that isn't so as a i want my country poland to respect human rights and our poled the rule of law i fight for these principles in the courts silence on the. weekends but how would you know the ones that my client was filmed that an anti-government demonstration by polish state t.v. and described on a new show as a common provocateur where demanding an apology from the t.v. station and we want to show that the t.v. report was manipulated on. the growth of interest groups that have spent the 1st time that an ordinary citizen is bringing an action against the state t.v. station to repeat and not the other way around but this is my biggest case so far
and it's a landmark case for society that most people maggots it's very challenging but i feel good about it was negative i feel i'm defending european values and contributing to something important that spike it does but it's fighting for a more democratic society that up holds the rule of law but to the market it's there but it was wrong that. it will get better for example i love my job i love sorting out the final details the night before a court appearance the adrenaline on the day that. especially when it's a case that has broader social relevance. i think yes i get very invested in the whole thing in that has been reached what is it with the young that. in court spatter describes how her client has suffered both personally and professionally because of the t.v.
report. he's had to switch jobs and he feels he's been publicly shamed just what. in the end the hearing is adjourned and not for the 1st time. the case is put on hold for 6 months. but they look at from a condition side and on to a group of lawyers currently working on the many many cases if they've got the full 40 percent of our cases a program. we represent people with no money who are fighting what we see as an important case. there are many lawyers in poland's doing what we do. but the some of my colleagues laugh at me but i don't care what matters to me is what i see results where there is more of me in my client gets to stay in their apartment my refugee is granted papers to stay on hold and part of my work can improve people's lives as i try to make sure they get the ruling may mean i can sleep at night and then once but some are going to. be.
looking. up their gardens 1st projections it looks like i mean i mean you can go down. so dreadfully yet but it looks good really good thanks to your group. now. you guys. told me it was. well 2 years ago we created cause we had 0 a idea how to fix actually went from. 2 years in and this is why been betting it's if the entire day i'm so proud of what we have achieved. we can make it again countries we manage to do well but it's going to take his we have almost $40000.00 volunteers so obviously i hope that we are going to be like that once and i think our. way.
now i. am going to see because this is an amazing success for bolton germany and an amazing success for european democracy and safety in this image shows that in just over 2 years we managed to rally together people across the continent. with a positive democratic vision and a shared program. with an opposing t.v. them cards. should that we can do it we are capable of getting elected new groove evidence based policies be fought using puppets discourse and and we gave what would have
changing the political landscape one small step at a time. i mean everyone has the world painted politics and and in society as a whole to make sure we get to the society it does it is that you have to be in office that many ways to live and making the time to sit back and hope that all this fluid glass is gone and everyone has a response to me and we'll get a campaign if we don't do anything today is to eat meat.
so in course when the. next d.w. . good shape. sweet temptation. of course and. asked. why. the customer takes x. why should i eat all sugar and how harmful kids sugar and how should i enjoy food without any for in good shape in 30 minutes on d w. in the 1st hours raising people straight for summer. when there's a flood water comes up to our waist and clothes faster everyone but. the lack of
