The minister of justice Katarina Barley said the draft is an improvement, ignoring the criticism from the community, the opposition and her own party. She said self-determination with the coalition partner is not possible. She said: If the community does not want her draft (which was written together with the ministry of the interior) you can leave it at that.
This is a hard punch against trans, inter and non-binary people in Germany and a hard punch against this petition. At first a submission to the cabinet was delayed, so the community was hopeful. Now the draft could be submitted next week to the cabinet, on its way to the parliament.
This draft is not the improvement Katarina Barley wants to sell us.
Please continue to sign and share the petition, as well as the petition at change.org:
We don't need this draft. We need a real self-determination law!!
