Both offline and online, the protests for a better Federal Participation Law war under the motto: #nichtmeingesetz (English: not my law). Here, Krauthausen can be seen talking to Dr. Ilja Seifert during a symbolic "cage action" on Washington Square in front of Berlin's main train station.

The Federal Participation Law led to numerous protests in 2016: On 11 May 2016, activists chained themselves up near the Basic Law panels in the Bundestag for a good Federal Participation Law. Raul Krauthausen was also put in chains there.
