Refugees and supporters pass vintage East German Trabant cars during their protest march in the town of Werder, near Potsdam on October 4, 2012.

A group of some 20 to 30 refugees are marching 310 miles across Germany to protest their living conditions while seeking political asylum in the country. 

The asylum seekers started their walk in the Bavarian city of Wuerzburg in September after breaking an official order that constrains their movement. They aim to reach Berlin on Saturday.

Turgay Ulu, who said he was jailed in Turkey for his political convictions, is writing a blog about his experiences during the journey. "We are marching because we want freedom and respect," he wrote.
