While many volunteers are giving support to refugees, the German government’s new draft law sets out numerous measures, which will further disenfranchise and discriminate against them. What’s more, the division between »good refugees« who mostly come from Syria and other war zones, and »bad refugees« who come from the Balkans, is thus being established.
