How to stop deportations

At best, there is no need for anti-deportation struggles – and everybody has the right to stay. Therefore it is helpful to contact advice centers and lawyers at an early stage. But there are some last minute options, too:

    • People can try to stop their deportation by refusing to sit donw in the airplane and by telling the other people that you are not willing to fly. In those cases the pilot cancels the deportation from time to time, so that the plane can start. Please find more information in many languages below.
    • Supporters can inform the other passengers at the airport about the deportation that is going to take place and ask them to protest. Passengers can express their solidarity with the struggle in the flight if they do not sit down, too, and document assaults. Materials and contact to local groups can you find in our site.
    • Bringing a deportation into public attention and putting the airline under pressure needs the consent of the deportee. Think carefully about your action and take a grounded decision together with the affected person. It is possible that an intervention might lead to negative consequences during the deportation, such as increased police accompany.
