The Action

The initiative TanzVersammlung Rosenthaler – Tanzen gegen Rechts (Rosenthaler Dance Meeting – Dancing Against The Right) organizes demonstrations in collaboration with like-minded campaign groups like Berlin Gegen Nazis (Berlin Against Nazis), the Anwohner*innen Initiative für Zivilcourage gegen Rechts (Neighbourhood Initiative for Civil Courage – Against Right-wing Extremism) or the RCC (Reclaim Club Culture) for mutual protest against marches of right-wing extremism and populism and against racial ideas. For some time now, we have been increasingly concer-ned with bringing back the values of the Techno movement to the general consciousness. Therefore, we are promoting the idea that
the experience of electronic music in the club should occur once again at eye level with the values of the Techno movement. “We must defend this valuable freedom – which is the freedom to party as well – and the people who are making it possible against the threat of nationalist and conservative ambitions.” (Excerpt from the speech by DASFAX on 3rd of October 2019 at the demonstration of the RCC).
