I was at the #unteilbar demo today with my parents and grandparents to show that racism, homophobia and the other shit going on won’t be tolerated.

Priya Basil yesterday at #Unteilbar: „be realistic, demand the impossible“

Bigger than the inauguration of Donald Trump. #unteilbar

Nearly a quarter million people took to the streets of Berlin on Sunday to face down the rise of far-right populism in Germany & Europe. #Unteilbar

Attending yesterdays #unteilbar protest in Berlin was quite impressive. So many people of so many races, colors, genders and whatever were celebrating peacefully together. After weeks of dark news of racism its a spark of hope. I am proud to live in this city.

It’s been 242,00 people in Berlin today that demonstrated for togetherness and solidarity. what a time to be alive #unteilbar

Because @dwnews is a serious news channel and the first reports about the amount of protesters were hard to believe as it is not normal for Germany to have protests with this amount of people. I was there and I am very proud of each single protester. Thank you to all! #unteilbar

Berlin, auf dich ist Verlass! Wir sind unglaublich viele bei #unteilbar #b1310 [Berlin, you can rely on it! We are unbelievably many at #unteilbar # b1310]

As hundreds of thousands of people took to the street of #Berlin demonstrating against racism and calling for solidarity against the rise of the far-right across Germany and Europe we commit our pledge: We are many, we are #unteilbar and change is coming!

Loving the fact that the #unteilbar demonstration passes by underneath my window. Fly, my lovelies, fly! #berlin
