Why we must talk about migrant violence against women
9. February 2018
A lot things happened after we started our campaign: We conducted interviews, relaunched our website and talked with many people about #120db . Besides the overwhelming positive reactions there are a few comments – both on social media and by broadcasts – which called our campaign “racist”, because we only talk about the migration background of the perpetrators. We often hear the following: “the perpetrators are always men!” and “There a way more crimes committed by Germans!”
Those people feel vindicated by statistics. For them, there is nothing wrong as long there are more Germans committing crimes than migrants. More than this mindset is utterly cynical, it is completely wrong. There are some facts, proven by the official statistics of the German police for the year 2016, we’d like to share with you. At first, you have to put the numbers of crimes in connection with the total amount of the population of each group. So indeed, it’s true: there are more Germans committing crimes in Germany than migrants. But: there are also way more Germans living in Germany than migrants. When looked closely upon, you can see the difference. (1) As a matter of fact, Algerians are 21 times more likely to be suspected of committing sex assaults than Germans. This isn’t an isolated case: migrants from Guinea are nearly 17 times more likely, migrants from Afghanistan are 19 times mire likely for doing so. Knowing this and about the current pro-migration policy, it is rather a denial of reality by not calling this a growing problem for German women.
Although the establishment is still trying to defend this policy, other politicans already had to confirm this alarming tendency. “There is nothing to whitewash”, said the then Minister for Home Affairs, Thomas de Maizière, when presenting the disastrous statistics in April 2017. By then, the number of crime-suspected asylum seekers and refugees has risen by 90 percent compared to the previous year (2). For a long time, the crime rate was on a way downwards, but when the borders were opened, it rose again. In 2016, according to the statistics, the numbers for sexual assaults increased by 12,8 percent. Even the rather left-wing leaning “Zeit” newspaper had to state: “Without the crimes of suspected migrants, the crime rate of 2016 would be still sinking or at least wouldn’t be increasing” (3).
As long as the imported violence against women isn’t a subject in media and as long there are no consequences to the wrong policy, this is cheap talk. For this reason, we started the “120 decibel” campaign. We are reminded every day how important our subject is by the resistance we are meeting.
