DJs from underground Berlin party crews including Sisyphos and Elektrotribe are performing on Saturday afternoon on a ‘Demoparade’ in Berlin, which aims to protest against ‘Fashion terror and exploitation’.
The ‘Pro Trashion parade sets off from Friedrichstrasse at 2pm with sound systems playing off three trucks and protestors are invited to ‘please come in Trash Costume or with other fancy freaky fair Wear!’
“As consumers these days, we have little idea about how, where and by who are clothes are made, about whether or not workers’ basic human rights have been respected during the complex production process. The sad truth is that working conditions in the global Textile Industry’s production hot spots, like China, Bangladesh and elsewhere are, more often than not, appalling,” organisers announced on their associated website.
“A new era is dawning,’ they predicted. “We want the Fashion Industry to at long last, wake up! With this demo organised on the last day of Berlin Fashion Week, our message is for the Week’s organisers and all the industry visitors attending ‘Premium’, ‘Bread and Butter’ and the other trade shows. We will keep on demonstrating until all fashion industry players are playing fair.
You are invited to get involved, march with us, dance with us and mobilise the masses!”
The procession is followed by a 48 hour warehouse party on the fringes of Berlin in Grenau (more details below):
