Black Lives Matter Denmark addresses injustices against minorities within the non-criminal asylum/immigration prisons and criminal justice system.

BLM Denmark is a platform from which to actively address and protest minority racism against people of color by the police and justice system.
The active focus will mainly be for Denmark and Northern Europe while also updating with relevant news an international level.

BLM Denmark will mainly address L67 law resulting in the Guantanamo – Concentration Camp type jailing of non-criminal innocent asylum seekers and immigrants rotting in jails for months on end. There has been no attention paid and no organised protest so the authorities have become negligent with minority’s right to freedom.
These jailings are getting longer and longer resulting in suicide attempts and hunger strikes. We appreciate them not gassing the inmates to death and not forcing them in labour but that is where the difference stops.
Normal right and privileges granted to the Danish criminal prison population are denied jailed asylum seekers, transit refugees and immigrants.

Besides that issues regarding the kriminelle justice system will be addressed on this platform.
This is right from the Ryan Lochte and “Asyl spray” type #TheBlackGuyDidItSyndrome to ever growing unfair huge gap between the length of sentences criminal justice system doles out to people of color and White people. This combined with not being able to afford good legal representation affects the statistics reinforcing the myth and prejuidice that men of color are dangerous and more criminal.

The assumption of guilt begins with the Police on street level where there is an ever growing tendency for a racially mixed groups of friends from the age of adolescence up to be approached by Police and only the minorities have to show their iD.
– There is a greater ratio of arrests
– There is a longer and higher rate of convictions needs to be researched on a scientific level and debated.
– White convicted seem to receive more “fodlænker” sentences

If you are a minority Dane and would like to assist in the engine room, you are more than welcome to send a message. I took the initiative but I humbly admit one person cannot carry this project alone. I need the communities support in a combined and common effort.

Black Lives Matter Denmark is intersectional and addresses Black and Brown race minority issues.

Thank you for joining this page.
