Anti-capitalist demonstration

Organize – against racism and social exclusion
April, 30th 2015
6:30 pm
Metro station Leopoldplatz (Berlin)

Organize – against racism and social exclusion!

The city belongs to all of us!

Everyone in Berlin creates the city as we know it. Every day we shape and build our homes, our streets, our neighborhoods. Everyone in her or his own way. As everywhere in Berlin neighborhoods are transforming – including the Wedding. These changes are associated with numerous problems. Mainly because a few want to earn of what all are creating together. Homes are being sold or renovated, rents are increasing. If accommodations can no longer be afforded you have to move in outer districts or in the worst case, your flat will be evicted. The Senate of Berlin is looking on passively. Or it supports such processes as appreciation of  so called ‘problem neighborhoods’. Quartiersmanagements (‘neighborhood managements’) and neighborhood committees support the displacements and processes of gentrification with an illusion that all citizens could take part in shaping the  policy of the city. But we do not accept this. What we create together, can be defend together – throughout an organizing from below.

Attack racist conditions!

Most refugees are excluded from a freedom of movement, social participation and attending a wage labor, as they are put down as “illegal” and being held isolated in camps. They are confronted physically and psychologically more directly with a forfeited right of self-determination. Economic businesses and social service providers already hit profits with escape and migration. In a smugly way, European policy creates a top-down “welcome culture”. In reality the immigration authorities and the public cost / benefit analysis on the “immigration status” decides who is allowed to stay or will be deported. Everyday racist police controls and the ever-present threat of deportation increase the pressure on refugees additionally. This is part of a racist propaganda which ultimately splits, humiliates and kills.

Never stop resisting! Refugee Struggle in Hamburg and Dortmund

Call – Never stop resisting! Refugee Struggle in Hamburg and Dortmund

Manifestation on 25th April, 6:00pm at Kirchplatz, Münsterstraße in Dortmund

hhdoAll over Germany refugees self-organize to protest against the the unacceptabilities of the migration and asylum regime. They fight for their right to stay, for freedom of movement and equal rights. Central themes like the insupportable conditions in refugee camps or the experiences of social exclusion and racism -which they experience every day on the streets and with the authorities- are made to the subject of discussion.  Therefore the restrictive asylum and resident policies get into focus. In doing so they get support by antiracist activists and groups, which declare their solidarity with the demands of refugees and see the necessitiy of joint fights, and unite to form local alliances.

For two years the group “Lampedusa in Hamburg” fights for the right to stay for refugees, which came from Lampedusa over Italy to Germany, and the approval of their italian papers and work permits. They self-organize in the local alliance of „Rights to the city – Never mind the papers“, which fights for freedom of movement, self-determination, living space and against racism. In january the alliance organized a demonstration with up to 8.000 people.

Also in Dortmund there are first approaches of selforganizing refugees. In the beginning of 2015 refugees from the camp in the Brügmannhallen delivered an open letter to the city of Dortmund, to call attention to the bad conditions in the camp. They claimed the closure of the camp. Although it is closed by now, the accommodation in emergency shelters like container villages on the outskirts of Dortmund still continues. Some of the refugees found an apartment, but there is more to it – it’s about the right to stay, to live a self-determined life without harassment, discrimination, casualization, oppression and the constant fear of deportation!

Together we want to take the struggles and fights of refugees into public and set a counter-position to the racist developments in Germany. We invite refugees and activists from Hamburg and Dortmund to talk about their experiences of their fights for the right to stay and a self-determined life. The protests need a broad support, if we want to oppose the grueling asylum policy. An active solidarity with refugees and the perspective of political organization and fighting together can be the only respond to racist diatribes from neonazis, so called enraged citizen and racists. Wether in Dortmund, Hamburg or elsewere – we will never stop resisting!

Come to the manifestation on 25th April, 6:00pm at Kirchplatz, Münsterstraße in Dortmund. There will be speeches from refugees and supporters, videos of the fights for the right to stay in Hamburg, a photo exhibition, live music and many more!

Refugees Welcome Dortmund, April 2015
