Mothers Against Refugees in Munich Grünwald

By  Monday, 8.2.2016, 19:14    General News

Mothers from one of Munich’s most exclusive and posh suburbs, Grünwald, are worried that their part of town might become similar to one of the Paris suburbs which are mostly inhabited by migrants. They plan to launch a citizens’ initiative to stop the allocation of municipal land to the District Office for the accommodation of refugees and not to renew the lease on the air dome in Wörnbrunn, where a number of asylum-seekers are living. Seven women from Grünwald have sent a letter with the statement to the Mayor.

In the letter they complain that they are afraid of letting their children play outdoors. The authors are also afraid of sexual assaults on children by male refugees. According to an initiator, they have "500 to 1,000 people," who pledged their support for the project. In the letter, the women state that they are not part of any German right-wing party or organisation.

A spokeswoman of an organisation helping refugees and migrants of the area said that refugees living in the air dome are treating the women helping them with courtesy and respect. She also said that there haven’t been any reported incidents and that the municipality cannot legally fight against the accommodation of refugees in Grünwald. She pointed out that engaging in personal contact with the refugees is the best way to reduce existing fears.
