Tareq Alaows may be the first Syrian refugee to enter the Bundestag. The threats and insults of racism justified his political ambitions. Before him, others suffered the same setbacks.
Be the first Syrian refugee to enter the Bundestag: This is Tareq Alaows’ ambition. The 31-year-old former Damascus law and international relations student, the son of a journalist and bookseller, arrived in Germany in 2015 after escaping from the civil war. -Westphalia, the traditional stronghold of the Social Democratic Party (SPD), will hold parliamentary elections on September 26.
In the posted video Twitter, On February 2, the young man explained why he wanted to be a member of Congress and why he should put an environmental label on it: “The climate crisis will worsen the situation of the people in the southern hemisphere. This is why a fair climate policy must be related to refugees and migrants. (…) As the first Syrian refugee in the German Bundestag, I want to be the political spokesperson for hundreds of thousands of people who have been forced to immigrate and live among us today”, He has announced.
But the adventure soon ended. On March 30th, Tareq Alaows stated that he had thrown away his towel due to the racially discriminatory dumpster and the threats he had been threatened since he was declared to run.
“My candidacy shows that we need to build a strong structure in all parties, the political world, and society as a whole to face racism and help people who are victims of racism.”He said in a statement, adding: “My great public interest to candidates highlights what we can do as refugees. Unfortunately, our society lacks a place where discrimination does not spread. It is up to us to change the status quo of things.”
