What is it about?
The article is about the legacy of the migrant camp set up in Oranienplatz (Berlin) between 2012 and 2014. It tackles the reasons why the protest camp is remembered by activists who oppose border regimes several years after its end. The article argues that the front role played by refugee activists in the protest camp is the main reason why activists remember; the protest camp counters the invisibility of migrant grassroots struggles in Germany.
