Lampedusa in Hamburg

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Rote Flora alternative cultural centre, was the site of police raids in the summer of 2013, a part of a clampdown on immigrants in Hamburg. The refugees, mostly from Ghana, were formerly working in Libya but fled the war and were detained on the Italian island of Lampedusa. Thrown out of Italy they ended up homeless in Hamburg, where they were reportedly hounded by the German police. Now they have been given refuge by the local church of St Pauli, where they still live in containers on church grounds.
