A group of German women have launched a campaign called #120db to lend a voice to women who have been physically or sexually attacked as a result of mass migration policies.
The group, which calls itself 120 Decibels after the sound intensity of rape alarms, launched a video this week in which several members list the names of recent victims of violence committed by asylum seekers.
The women in the video reference the recent case of a young girl called Mia, who was stabbed to death by her former asylum seeker boyfriend in the German city of Kandel, as well as Maria Ladenburger, who was raped and killed allegedly by migrant who lied about being underage, and 11-year-old Ebba Akerlund, who was torn in half after being struck by a lorry during the Stockholm terror attack last year.
“They could be me and I could be them,” the women go on to say.”The offenders are everywhere. While jogging in the park, when we come home after work, while we wait for the bus, we are not secure because you are not securing us.”
The women go on to blame mass migration, stating that the borders are not secure, that the authorities have no idea who is coming into the country, and “refuse to deport criminals”.

The number of deportations in Germany decreased in 2017, despite promises from German Chancellor Angela Merkel in late 2016 to deport 100,000 failed asylum seekers.
“Because of your immigration policies, we are soon facing a majority of young men who come from archaic societies with no women’s rights,” one of the women states.
The group then calls for the women of Europe to rise up against mass migration promising to take action and declaring that their #120db movement is the “real #MeToo”.
The hashtag elicited many responses on social media platform Twitter supporting the movement, but also some criticising it. One critic, a woman from Germany, labelled the movement “ethnosexism”.
#120db is not about sexualized violence, it is about ethnosexism. It is not about women's rights but about normalizing prejudices and hate against male refugees and black men.

The movement is also linked to the hipster-right identitarian youth movement, which has been likened to a right-wing version of Greenpeace for their often spectacular protests.
Last year, the group’s Defend Europe mission saw them raise well over a hundred thousand dollars to hire a ship to observe migrant transport NGOs off the coast of Libya.
