We, the ‘Alliance Students Against the Right’ (BSgR) are a unit of the Student Council of Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg (since February 2014) and see ourselves, based on the free democratic basic order, as a:
non – violent,
Association of students in Magdeburg who speak out against ‘right-wing’ ideas.
For us, right-wing ideas include:
an anti-egalitarian view that sees people as not equal,
discrimination and oppression
contempt for human beings of any kind, such as anti-Semitism or anti-gypsyism,
the stigmatization of religious, cultural, and/or sexual orientations
(no claim that the list is exhaustive).
Our goals are
Organisation of events, seminars, panel discussions, exhibitions, etc. to address problematic situations;
Mobilise as many students as possible for sympathy and committed participation in society, e.g. within the framework of demonstrations, events, rallies;
presence und networking:
through our active presence as an alliance and department of the student council, we would like to point out the urgency of permanent commitment against ‘right-wing’. We act as a contact point for those affected and offer opportunities for engagement and networking.
We would like to promote a more critical public in dealing with neo-Nazis, right-wing violence and right-wing ideas at Magdeburg’s universities and in our city and present a student body that stands up against them in a united, decisive and non-violent way, that looks and shows civil courage.
