Crisis Mirror Podcast #2: Migrants and the Danish state
Over the last years the Danish government has taken a number of measures to prevent and regulate migration. We took a dive into the multiple levels of discrimination and exploitation imposed by these measures and explored the rhetoric behind it as expressed by the hegemonic ideology.

Lyrics mashed from two poems by Pietro Gori and Bertolt Brecht.
Oh fugitives from all around
On an adventure we go without regret or fear
Our homeland is the entire world
Our law is freedom
And there’s a rebellious thought in our heart
Observing beyond the boundary, zealously asking
Every arrival, forgetting nothing and giving up nothing
And also not forgiving anything which happened, forgiving nothing
The silence of the Sound does not deceive us! We hear the shrieks
From their camp even here. Yes, we ourselves
Are almost like rumours of crimes, which escaped
Over the frontier. Every one of us
Who with torn shoes walks through the crowd
Bears witness to the shame which now defiles our land.
But none of us
Will stay here. The final word
Is yet unspoken.
