Possibilities for intervention
concerning Neo-Nazism and Racism through
training in democratic skills
You have …
…a particular colour in mind when you go to the chemist’s to buy skin-coloured plaster? If you want to find out what this and other (apparently) obvious things have to do with racism, look through our leaflet skin-colours and other Assumptions, where we are happy to share our thoughts on the topic of racism. In a compact format we have put together some food for thought on daily manifestations of racism.
The leaflet is available free of charge from LAG pokuBi (see Contact). If you would like to have it sent by post, P&P fee applies.
This leaflet can be obtained in a printed form from LAG pokuBi, or downloaded as PDF here.

“Racism in Saxony – current perspectives 2010”
The brochure titled “Racism in Saxony – current perspectives 2010” was published on March 23 by the Anti-Discrimination Bureau of Saxony (Antidiskriminierungsbüro Sachsen). In the brochure you will find reports from various Saxon initiatives and associations on different aspects of racism in Saxony. It is available free of charge from the Anti-Discrimination Bureau (You can receive further information from info(at)adb-sachsen.de or by phone on 0341-3039492).
The brochure can be collected from:
Antidiskriminierungsbüro | Kochstraße 14| Leipzig
or ordered by email at info(at)adb-sachsen.de.
It is the first time that important Saxon initiatives and associations present information on racism in Saxony in one common document. Apart from reports, statistics and criticism of the current state of affairs, the articles present different perspectives, offer recommendations and requests to government offices, institutions, political decision-makers and civil organizations.
You can download the brochure from the Anti-Discrimination website or here as a PDF file.
“… and which race do you belong to?”
Newsletter of the German Institute for Human Rights.
Policy paper No 10: “… and which race do you belong to?” on the problem of the notion of ‘race’ in legislation.
The policy paper advocates that the term ‘race’ should no longer be used in legal texts, bills or regulations. Furthermore, Germany should lobby against using the word ‘race’ in international documents. In the policy paper you can find suggestions of law changes to exclude the notion of ‘race’.
Policy Paper No 16: Constitution without ‘race’. Article 3 of the German Constitution amendment suggestion.
The policy paper suggests that the legislative body remove the word ‘race’ from the non-discrimination rule of Article 3 of the German Constitution, and replace it with a ban on ‘racist’ discrimination or preference.
A relevant amendment would be an important signal to stop ostensible acceptance of racist concepts. The paper refers with its content to the Policy Paper No 10: “… and which race do you belong to?” as far as the problem of the word ‘race’ in legislation is concerned.
The paper can also be ordered free of charge from the German Institute for Human Rights in Berlin (Deutsches Institut für Menschenrechte e. V).
