Picture of the violent police arrests in Luxemburg during the Refugee March for Freedom 2014

Gestern waren wir auf der Kundgebung für die Freilassung aller politischen Gefangenen! vor dem Gefängnis in der Turmstr. in Berlin. Wir waren dort wegen der Verhaftung von 11 Leuten in Luxemburg auf dem March for Freedom 2014. Auch ich bin damals verhaftet worden; auf dem Foto liege ich unter den Polizisten am Boden. Die Polizei hatte mit Hunden ohne Maulkorb die Demo angegriffen vor dem Gebäude, wo die  Innenministerkonferenz stattfand. Wir haben dort gegen  Dublin 3, 4 usw., gegen Abschiebungen und EU-Asylpolitik und gegen geschlossene Grenzen protestiert. Die Polizei in Luxemburg hat uns geschlagen und jetzt zwei Jahre später sind wir angeklagt. Am 29. November 2016 waren wir schon in Luxemburg vor Gericht aber es gab keinen Dolmetscher und die Verhandlung wurde verschoben auf den 5. und 6. April 2017. Deswegen waren wir gestern auf der Demo für die Freilassung aller politischen Gefangenen! in Berlin und haben erzählt was in Luxemburg  passiert ist – für mich ist sehr klar, wir kämpfen für unsere Rechte, für Bewegungsfreiheit. Es ist wichtig, dass die Leute zusammenkommen und zusammen kämpfen für ihre Rechte  – jeder hat das Recht zu demonstrieren! Ich habe an vielen Demos teilgenommen aber was in Luxemburg passiert ist war schlimm; ohne Kommunikation hat die Polizei einfach angegriffen und die Demo eingekesselt. Es wurde gesagt, dass wir eine bewaffnete Revolution gemacht hätten und das stimmt nicht, es war ein friedlicher Marsch, die Polizei war gewalttätig. 6 Leute von uns wurden dann zwei Jahre später angeklagt, ich bin einer davon.

Die Politik der EU ist es die Leute zu spalten, sie zu diskriminieren aber ich habe keine Angst, ich kämpfe für die Freiheit und ich hoffe dass alle Leute vestehen, dass es nicht kriminell ist für die Freiheit zu kämpfen und für seine Rechte zu kämpfen. Wir brauchen die Solidarität der Menschen in unserem Kampf, es geht nicht wegzuschauen wenn andere Menschen um ihre Freiheit kämpfen müssen.picture taken at the march for freedom close to Shengen

Ich hoffe dass am 5. und 6. April alles gut läuft. Am Freitag, den 24.03. gibt es ein Treffen in der Waldemarstr. 46 (Ecke Adalbert Str.), kommt vorbei und informiert Euch, ihr könnt Fragen stellen und seid solidarisch!

Am Montag, den 20. März gibt es eine Radiosendung über die Geschichte in Luxemburg auf Wearebornfree Empowerment Radio um 10:00 morgens, schaltet ein!

Solidary with the Luxemburg Defendants – Free all Political Prisoners!

March for Freedom Police violence in Luxemburg

Yesterday we were at a rally to “free all political prisoners! “. It was in front of the prison on TurmStr. in Berlin. We were that because of the arrest of 11 people in Luxemburg who were in arrested at the March for Freedom Luxemburg in 2014. I was also arrested at that time. In the photo I am laying on the ground under the police. The police attacked the demonstration in front of the building where conference of the ministers of Interior was taking place. The attacked with dogs. The dogs wore no mussels. We were there to protest against Dublin 3 & 4 etc. and against deportation and European Union asylum policies and against closing the borders. The police in Luxemburg beat us up and now two years later we are being accused. On November 29, 2016 we were in court in Luxemburg. There was no translator and the trial was put off until the 5th and 6th of April 2017. That is why we went to the demo to free all political prisoners yesterday (March 18th)  in Berlin, and we spoke about what happened in Luxemburg. For me it is very clear. We fight for our civil rights, for freedom of movement. It is important that the people come together and fight together for their rights. Everyone has the right to demonstrate! I have participated in many demos, but what happened in Luxemburg, that was really bad. Without any warning, the police had simply moved in and surrounded the demonstration. It has been said that we started an armed revolution, and that isn’t true. It was a peaceful marc, the police were violent. Six of our people were then accused two years later. I am one of them.

It is the policy of the EU is to split people , to discriminate against them. But have no fear, I will fight for freedom and I hope that everyone understands that it is not criminal to fight for freedom, and for ones rights. We need solidarity from people in our fight. One cannot look the other way when other people have to fight for their freedom.

I hope that it goes well on the 5th and 6th of April. On Friday March 24, there will be a meeting at Waldemarstr. 46 (corner Adalbert Str.), come by and inform yourselves, you can ask questions and show your solidarity.

On Monday March 20 there will be a radio program about the story in Luxemburg on wearebornfree Empowerment Radio at 10 a.m. Turn it on and tune in!

Grenzregime 3: Der lange Sommer der Migration

 Der lange Sommer der Migration Grenzregime III Buchvorstellung – Grenzregime 3 in Berlin

Dienstag, 28.02.2017 – 19.30 – k-fetisch (Wildenbruchstraße 86, 12045 Berlin)

Buchvorstellung und Diskussion

Grenzregime 3: Der lange Sommer der Migration

Im Jahr 2015 spitzten sich jene Verhältnisse zu, die bereits zuvor das europäische Grenzregime gekennzeichnet hatten: Die Risse des Dublin-und Schengensystems, die Widersprüche zwischen europäischen Abschottungsversuchen, erstarkendem Nationalismus und auf der anderen Seite lokalen Solidaritätspraxen und der Bewegung der Migration.

Der Sammelband Grenzregime 3 hat zeitnah aktivistische und wissenschaftliche Perspektiven auf die Verschiebungen im Grenzregime an den verschiedenen Orten in und außerhalb Europas entwickelt und gebündelt. Auf der Buchvorstellung haben wir Gelegenheit Einblicke in die Perspektiven der Autor*innen Chandra-Milena Danielzik und Lina Ewert sowie Mathias Rodatz und Stefanie Kron als Mitherausgeber*innen zu nehmen und zu diskutieren: Welche Entwicklungen des Grenzregimes können wir rekapitulieren? Wie können diese Widersprüche zugespitzt werden? Welche alternativen Visionen von Europa werden in diesen Kämpfen sichtbar?

Stefanie Kron und Mathias Rodatz rekapitulieren den langen Sommer der Migration und die Krise, Rekonstitution und ungewisse Zukunft des europäischen Grenzregimes.

Lina Ewert erörtert Chancen und Grenzen zivilgesellschaftlicher Seenotrettung am Beispiel der Organisation Seawatch.

Chandra-Milena Danielzik blickt auf die Willkommenskultur, die Geflüchteten-Bewegung und die Suche nach Gemeinsamkeiten der Kämpfe um Rechte.

Anti-Sicherheitskonferenz-Demo München 18ter Februar 2017

Anti-Sicherheitskonferenz-Demo
Eine unserer Mitstreiterinnen hält auf der Demonstration gegen die sogenannte Sicherheitskonferenz, am 18.02 2017 eine Rede:
Die Zeit der Willkommenskultur ist schon längst vorbei. Deutschland ist zum Abschiebeland geworden. Die Geflüchtetenpolitik der Europäischen Union hat eine tödliche Form bekommen. Allein im Jahr 2016 sind 5022 Geflüchtete bei der Flucht über das Mittelmeer gestorben. Die Zahl der Toten steigt und unsere Geschwister, die die Flucht überlebt haben, werden trotzdem in den Tod abgeschoben. Deutscher Staat paktiert mit diktatorischen Regimen, um die Fluchtwege zu sperren und die Abschiebungen umzusetzen.
Während die Politiker*innen im Westen sich über Donald Trump und seine Mauer an den Grenzen zu Mexiko ärgern, haben alle Länder der Balkanroute ihre Grenzen komplett mit Zäunen geschlossen. In München Neuparlach wurde eine vier Mete hohe und 50 Meter lange Mauer gezogen, um ein Wohngebiet von der Geflüchtetenunterkunft zu trennen.  In der Nähe des Geflüchtetencamps im nordfranzösischen Calais wurde eine Mauer gebaut, nachdem das Camp brutal geräumt wurde. Europa hat schon längst die Mauer von Trump gebaut.
Wir werden zum Opfer des rechten Terrors in Deutschland. Massenhaft werden wir zurück in die Kriegsländer abgeschoben. Als ob das nicht genug wäre, werden wir  in den heuchlerischen Medien und Polizeiakten als Kriminelle dargestellt. Das heißt, unser Leben und unsere Gesundheit sind in den Augen des deutschen Staates keinen Cent wert. In diesem Sinne bleibt uns nichts anderes übrig als für unsere demokratischen Rechte einen existenziellen Kampf zu führen.
Heute sind wir auf die Straße gegangen, um gegen die NATO-Sicherheitskonferenz zu protestieren, weil wir die Konsequenzen ihrer verbrecherischen Kriegspolitik sind. Sie sind verantwortlich für alle Fluchtursachen und Tode und profitieren davon.
Wir sehen uns gezwungen, die selbstverständlichen Dinge immer wieder zu erklären, warum wir zum Beispiel nach Deutschland gekommen sind. Unser Alltag spiegelt die imperialistische Barbarei wider. Während wir für westliche Firmen für Sklavenlohn arbeiten, unsere Häuser zerbombt werden, wir in die Flucht gedrängt werden,  wird das Leben im Westen für einige Wenige zum Paradies.
Wir sind Non-Citizens, das heißt; die Ausgeschlossenen und Entrechteten. Wir sehen uns gezwungen, für die selbstverständlichen humanitären Forderungen unser Leben ins Spiel zu setzen, weil die rassistische Ignoranz in Deutschland tief verankert ist. Wir müssen Widerstand leisten, um beispielsweise die Lager zu verlassen, weil wir sonst eingesperrt bleiben. Wir organisieren uns selbst, damit unsere Stimme nicht mehr ungehört bleibt, obwohl unsere Lage die Schlagzeilen füllt.
Selbst die Aktivist*innen, die „Refugees Welcome“ sagen, werden kriminalisiert. Der deutsche Staat nutzt jegliches Mittel, um uns in die Isolation zu drängen. Der deutsche Staat spaltet die Unterdrückten und Ausgebeuteten, und teilt die Menschen ein in Ausländliche und Einheimische, in „Legale“ und „Illegale“, in „Wirtschaftsflüchtlinge“ und „politische Flüchtlinge“. Wir versuchen dagegen mit unserem Widerstand die Isolation zu durchbrechen und dabei die rassistischen Zustände zu überwinden.
Weltweit sind die Rechten Parteien und Bewegungen auf dem  Vormarsch. Die neoliberale Ordnung ist in der Krise. Als Verantwortliche für ihre kapitalistische Krise erklären sie die Geflüchteten, die Arbeiter*innen, Frauen und Jugendlichen verantwortlich. Das bedeutet, wenn heute Geflüchtete abgeschoben werden, dann werden morgen die Arbeiter*innen zur Zielscheibe.  Mit Angriffen auf unsere demokratischen Rechte wollen die kapitalistischen Staaten aus der Krise rauskommen. Wir wissen aber, dass sie niemals eine produktive Lösung finden können. Denn ihre Ordnung ist auf Sand gebaut.
Diese Demonstration sollte uns die Möglichkeit eröffnen, den Protest gegen die Angriffe auf die demokratischen Rechte, die Abschiebungen, den Krieg, den Rassismus, den Sexismus, die Ausbeutung und Unterdrückung zu vereinen.
Wir fordern;
Sofortigen Stopp aller Abschiebungen!
Anerkennung aller Asylanträge!
Abschaffung des Lagersystems und der Residenzpflicht!
Das Recht auf Arbeit, dezentrales Wohnen und Bildung!
Rücknahme aller Abkommen, die auf Kosten der Geflüchteten vereinbart wurden!
Sofortigen Stopp der Kriegsforschung an den Hochschulen!

Turkey: State paramilitaries are destroying Syrian refugees’ tent homes in İzmir

As of February 8th, refugees living in tents in the Torbalı and Bayındır districts of İzmir are being evacuated in accordance with district governorate decisions through the intervention of its gendarmerie State paramilitary force. The tent areas are being removed. Thousands of refugees, who left their countries because of the civil war in Syria, have been struggling to survive as seasonal agricultural workers and living in the tent camps, constructed through their own efforts, in rural areas of İzmir.

Since Wednesday, many tent areas have been removed by gendarmerie without reason. Some tent areas were given until Monday to evacuate. Refugees whose assigned residence city is not İzmir have been expelled and people are being told they are expected to rent homes. However, for the majority of the refugees who work for very low wages it is not possible to earn enough money to move into a house.

In return for originally directing people to the tent areas and finding people jobs, “dayıbaşı” (the bosses of the areas) deduct money from refugees’ wages, pay irregularly or do not pay people at all. Since the agricultural workers need to live close to their working areas and don’t know the local language [Turkish], they are forced to accept the dayıbaşı system. Thus, being evacuated from their tents means taking away their means to an income.

What this means is that refugees who already left everything they had in Syria will, for a long time, now be unable to earn an income — demand for seasonal workers decreases in winter. They have survived through the cold weather thanks to tents, food, firing, diapers and hygiene products provided by a limited number of volunteers and CSO’s. The tent areas, which lack toilets, showers, clean water and  have been covered in mud from rainfall, are being ignored by the authorities.

These conditions affect children the most. Children are exposed to illnesses and developmental disabilities as a result of poor nutrition and health conditions. Hospitals deny treatment to refugees without documents. Even the death of baby Noaf, of pneumonia, after being refused hospital treatment did not impact government policy; which makes it particularly hard for refugees to get registered. And there are lots of children suffering from pneumonia in the camps. The threat of forced displacement by the gendarmerie further deepens the trauma of children, initially caused by the civil war and subsequent poor living conditions.

Last May, before the harvest, these tent areas providing a living space for nearly 2,000 people were removed by the district governorate. It is thought-provoking that the same action is now being taken just before seed-time, when the demand for seasonal workers increases. All this despite three years of speculation that the district governorate and municipality had plans to move people from the tent areas to one central place; to improve the living conditions of agricultural worker refugees.

Presse-Statement von RSFF Aktivistin zu SIKO

Beitrag von Narges Nasimi, Aktivistin von Refugee Struggle for Freedom

Beitrag von Narges Nasimi, Aktivistin von Refugee Struggle for Freedom, auf der Pressekonferenz des Bündnisses gegen die NATO-Sicherheitskonferenz, am 27.01.2017

Es gibt Momente, in denen man gezwungen ist, selbstverständliche Dinge immer wieder klären zu müssen. Heute zum Beispiel müssen wir allen erklären, warum wir nach Deutschland gekommen sind.

Der Grund dafür ist, weil unsere Länder von imperialistischen Mächten zerbombt sind, beispielsweise in Afghanistan, Irak, Mali und Syrien. Oder weil die reaktionären Monarchen und Diktatoren im arabischem Raum von Deutschland, Frankreich, USA usw. unterstützt werden, die wiederum als Burg der reaktionären Strömungen in dieser Region die fortschrittlichen Bewegungen bekämpfen.

Die Infrastrukturen werden in wirtschaftlich rückständigen Ländern zerstört, die arbeitende Bevölkerung arbeitet für Sklavenlohn für die westlichen Firmen. Das Leben ist im Rest der Welt eine Hölle, damit das Leben hier in Europa für einige Wenige zum Paradies wird.
Das können wir nicht hinnehmen. Die Flucht vor einem Krieg oder der Armut kann aus dem Grund nicht anders kategorisiert werden.

Menschen, hineingeboren in Krieg und Armut, verbringen ihr Leben auf der Flucht und wenn sie in Deutschland ankommen, werden sie hier ausgeschlossen und diskriminiert. Die Hoffnung auf ein besseres Leben und ausharrend in Angst vor einer Abschiebung und isoliert in den Geflüchtetenheimen sind ein Zustand, der uns tagtäglich zermürbt.

Es herrscht einen Rechtsruck in Deutschland. Diesem Zustand passen alle Parteien im Parlament ihr Programm an und dadurch finden die rassistischen Forderungen der AFD eine Rückendeckung. Dieser Rechtsruck wird in Form von Beschneidung demokratischer Rechte, bei Abschiebungen und in der Frauen- und Migrant*innen- und der Arbeiter*innenfeindlichen Atmosphäre sichtbar.

Wir sind die Untersten und am meisten Entrechteten der Arbeiter*innenklasse, die unter schlechtesten und illegalisierten Arbeitsbedingungen arbeiten müssen. Für uns gilt das Arbeitsverbot, Bildungsverbot, das Verbot des Rechts auf Wohnung. Doch unser Alltag ist auch bestimmt von rechtem Terror, Brandstiftungen und rassistischer Hetze. Unser Leben und unsere Gesundheit sind in den Augen des deutschen Staatess keinen Cent wert. Die Losung „Refugees Welcome“ bekommt heute aufgrund dieser repressiven Zustände den Charakter des Widerstands.

Der deutsche Staat spaltet die Unterdrückten und Ausgebeuteten, und teilt die Menschen ein in Ausländliche und Einheimische, in „Legale“ und „Illegale“. Wir, Non-Citizens verstehen uns als Teil der Arbeiter*innenklasse und sind überzeugt davon, dass unser Kampf nur in Zusammenarbeit mit Arbeiter*innen, Jugendlichen, Frauen und LGBT voranschreiten kann.

Wenn wir heute gegen die SIKO auf die Straße gehen, zeigen wir, dass wir jetzt eine Bewegung gegen die kapitalistische Barbarei aufbauen müssen. Die organisierte Arbeiter*innenklasse muss mit eigenen Mitteln wie z.B. mit Streik vorbereitet sein. Sie muss gegen Krieg, den Abbau von Arbeitsstellen, gegen Lohnkürzungen und Rassismus mobilisieren. Dafür tragen die Gewerkschaften eine große Verantwortung. Sie sind Organe, die Interessen von Arbeiter*innen und Unterdrückten vertreten müssen. Die deutsche Kriegsindustrie kann durch Streik und Besetzungen in den Betrieben und Fabriken gestoppt werden, so wie die Bundeswehr in den Unis und an Schulen.

Und wir Non-Citizens, als diejenigen, die von Bürgerrechten ausgeschlossen sind, erklären unsere Bereitschaft auch in diesem Jahr wieder mit unseren Bündnispartner*innen gegen den Krieg zu mobilisieren.

Greece: Hunger Strike in Elliniko Camp in Athens

Hunger Strike in Elliniko CampInfomobile Information with, about and for refugees in Greece

On 5th February 2017, most of the adults among the 711 refugees residing in a state-run Camp in the former Athens National Airport (Camp Elliniko II), in the majority coming from Afghanistan, started a hunger strike to protest against their degrading living conditions demanding for their transfer to homes, papers and freedom of movement for all. As reported by one of the refugees, it is very likely that residents of the two other camps in Elliniko (the nearby Olympic baseball and a hockey stadiums) might join in the protest tomorrow.

Among the 1,600 refugees living in the three camps of Elliniko there are some who are there already since one year. Elliniko Camp was opened already back in autoumn 2015, in a period where thousands were arriving to Greece and many stayed homeless in the parks and squares of Athens.
Planned as a temporary solution to ‘clear’ the capitals’ streets from the many homeless and repeatedly announced to be closed as belonging to one of the most infamous camps in Greece, it still stayed open until today, but always portrayed as ‘provisory’ under the UNHCR-category ‘informal site’.

Refugees used to live in the former airport throughout 2016 for months suffering under overcrowdedness, filthy insufficient toilettes and showers, inadequate food and without any information or legal aid. While the population has been reduced visible, the camp still is inadequate to host refugees and living conditions remain poor. Many highly vulnerable people still stay there. There are elderly, pregnant women, single mothers, people with mental health problems, people with chronic and
heavy diseases etc. In the meantime, many refugees are living there since one year.

Amongst others, refugees who started the protest complained about the quality of the food, lack of basic needs as for example milk and diapers for babies and toddlers, no hot water, no laundry, lack of translators for sick persons who have to go to hospital and no coverage of their transportation there. It is matter of survival, they state. They do not care about having more clothes or more food. But: food which doesnt’ make sick. Enough food, in order not to be hungry. Heating in order not to freeze.

“There are only a hand full of persons among us who speak English
and who can translate. They have to accompany anyone who gets sick to
the hospital, as the authorities and NGOs do not provide us with
translators for these purposes nor are there translators found in the
hospitals. We don’t even get the transportation costs re-funded for the
public transport used while accompanying some sick person. Some of us
got fined more than 30 times already for using the public transportation
without tickets. We will have severe problems in our asylum procedure,
to get an ID and passport, if recognized, if we have open fines to pay.
And they will increase successively if unpaid.”

Refugees living in Elliniko are suffering also mentally from the living conditions in the camp and their insecure situation in Greece and Europe.

“There are often fights. No one feels safe. People are in a
miserable state. they don’t know what to do. Many fear to stay forever
in Greece, where even Greek people cannot survive. There are no jobs,
there is no future. We fear European policies, which aim to increase
deportations of Afghans. Some of us have their relatives back in
Afghanistan. They cannot sleep at night, because they left them back in
conflict. There are people staying here who drink and fight. There is no
safety in the camp. There is no survival in Greece and there is no
safety in Afghanistan.”

More than 60% of the refugees in all three Elliniko Sites are women and
children

Amongst the refugee population in the camp are women with their kids awaiting their transfer to another European state where their husbands are. There are small kids with Asthma, like this 4-year-old girl who has to go to hospital almost every single night. People lock the doors to protect the salon from the cold, so no fresh air can enter. Many people smoke inside, others cook. The sewage water from the toilettes smells. So many get problems to breath. There is also a young man who had so
severe psychological problems, that he had to be transferred into the psychiatric clinic for a month. He was paranoid, thinking at any point someone wanted to kill him. He is taking medicaments now, but he is back in the camp, staying among 700 persons with his family. There is this pregnant lady in her 6th month, who often gets pains and has to visit the hospital again and again. She still lives there. Another woman just gave birth in there one month before. She is also still there.

Now, the refugees are trying to rase their voices to the world. They are already self-organised, having elected five representatives and holding plenaries since months. Now they want to provoke change, as they cannot suffer any longer.

“I am in danger in Afghanistan. I am even in danger in Greece. I was
told to get myself an appointment at the Asylum Service via Skpye, but
Skype isn’t responding.”

A woman holding a speech on the protest today said:

“We left Afghanistan because of the life-threatening situation and
for a future for our children. You closed the borders in front of us.
You locked us up in Greece. Now you are responsible to provide us with
what is needed to survive at least. Our children get sick here, and the
one doctor we have here for a few hours a day doesn’t give them medicine
but tell them to go an drink some water or some juice. We have the right
to have a good doctor, to have medicine. Even a pregnant woman gave
birth here, because the ambulance came so late.”

“There are mice in here. There is so much garbage outside. People
get sick from being here.”

Most adult refugees living in the camp attended the hunger strike today and plan to continue until the authorities, UNHCR and Danish Refugee Council (DRC) who are responsible in the camp listen and react to their demands:

– Open homes! Open the cities! Immediate evacuation of all into
dignified living conditions!

“We need to stay in the city and in our own rooms or flats. We don’t
want to be transferred to just another tent camp or prefab camp at the
margins of society! We want our children to go to school and we want to
go to work and earn our own living by ourselves in order to build up our
lives independently. We want to be free and participate in daily life as
all others do in this country.”

– Give papers and residence to stay to all refugees and allow anyone who
wants to move to another country to relocate legally and to join their
relatives! No discrimination of certain nationalities!

“The relocation program is discriminative. The right of free
movement should be given to all refugees. Many have their mothers,
fathers, brothers or sisters, their children or grandparents abroad.
Everybody has the right to be with his or her families. All people have
the right to live and work, somewhere, where it is possible to survive.
Even Greeks are searching for jobs outside of Greece. They are surviving
by returning to stay with their families. We have no one to help us
here, no one to open his or her house for us or to give us food. If
there is a chance to survive here, to find a job here, then we will
stay. As long as there isn’t, we should be allowed to move on legally.”

– Stop deportations to Turkey! Stop deportations to Greece! Stop
deportations to Afghanistan! Stop deportations to any unsafe countries!
The right to life for all!

“We fight for our rights. We fight for the rights of the others too.
The ones who are on the islands now, should be allowed to come to the
mainland, to seek asylum here, to stay here. Currently, people hardly
arrive to Greece anymore. The Turkish and the Greek Coast Guard,
together with the European Coast Guard fight refugees back on the sea
border. They stop them, from arriving to a place for asylum and
protection. The few who still come should be given a chance to stay.
Some of them who were allowed to move to the mainland arrive to Athens
without a place to stay. They are not permitted in the camps. Others
come to Athens without permit. They even have to return to the island.
We want freedom for all.”

“They want to start returning refugees who have been fingerprinted
here after March 15th of this year, back to Greece. No one can survive
here. We like to be in Greece. There are some nice people here, the
weather is good and the mentality of the Greeks is a little bit like our
own. But there are no jobs and there is no help for us. So how can we
find a home? How can we secure food for our kids? We also liked much
more to be in our homes in Afghanistan. But there is so safety but but
only war.”

“Europe is talking about the deportation of Afghans. Some countries
started already to return our people back even though their lives are in
danger in Afghanistan. Our president has signed a deal with Europe to
get money in exchange for taking refugees back. But our own politicians
keep their families in Europe for their own safety. European governments
advice their own citizens not to visit our country for safety reasons.
If we go back, we will die. Everybodys’ lives matter!”

GO HOME / EVİNİZE GİDİN

GO HOME

After it was their turn on the queue , a security which was carrying a walky-talky on his shirt’s pocket told them “ you, you, you and you are going home now”. But Hüsnü was insisting on asking “ but why?” But his questions did not work. Security officer was explaining the rules of the city; “ there are women inside, there are bags and valuable belongings of the guests”. Hüsnü and his friends had returned to the beginning of the street with the feeling of exclusion.

When Olcay had heard the invitation on the phone, he felt excited because he thought that its a preparation for a demonstration. When the meeting time had came , Olcay faced the difficulty about finding Hüsnü’ house. Because of experiencing torture and the prison he was in, he was always bad about finding addresses. But Hüsnü came and took him in front of the wrong building he was waiting for. They went to the top floor from the stairs of the apartment which has no elevator.

There were some food like peppers, potatoes on a untidy table in the kitchen. Hüsnü was preparing for cooking. Olcay started to cut the foods of which Hüsnü had showed him to do so. Hüsnü was self-confident as always and he was telling that he will cook a delicious meal from his hometown. Hüsnü has an athletic body and he was talking with the friends he invited while he was putting cooking pots on the oven. Selma , Ferit and Mehmet was sending photos and laughing each other. Hüsnü was sometimes making comments by looking at the pictures. Hüsnü was criticizing them ;“ All of you have cell phones that worth at least 1000€ but you can not find any money for other things.” mehmet was putting his cell phone under the hot water and trying to tell the other how good his cell phone is.

After a long preparation, the meals were finally ready. They were making comments about the meals while eating them. The potatoes did not cook well. Hüsnü said that it had been Ferit’s fault. He was telling how could his mom cook that meal. He was telling with missing about the wine that he had been making with his brother in their garden. His eyes was lighted up and it was understood how he hanker about his hometown.

Selma, who comparably was younger than others had left, althought she was here during preparations. It was not good to be late to the refugee camp she was living. The strict control system of their camp was restricting their lives. They always had to live within those boundaries of control system.

Klad was the last person that came for the dinner and he had brought a Portugal wine with him. Hüsnü and Olcay became first people that had tasted the wine. The others were not sure about tasting it. A funny talk started about the terms of “Halal” and “Haram”. there were always restrictions for the poor. The rules that decide what to do and what not to do; all were decided by traditions, religions and systems. They all had decided to go beyond those boundaries little bit this evening. There were New Year preparations in all parts of the city. The other parts of the society were making preparations of holiday and entertainment. But they were far behind of this idea of including this atmosphere.

Hüsnü; “ lets do something different tonight, like going to the night club”. Olcay was an older refugee compare to the others and he knew the life in the city better than others. Because he had some experiences. One time his roommate from refugee camp in Hannover asked him to go to disco together. The security guy at the entrance didn’t want to let his black friend in. Security guy told Olcay that “ You can go inside but this black guy can not”. After facing that kind of conversation they had to turn back to refugee camp in a sad and disappointed mood. That night Olcay’s roommate could not sleep because of this bad feeling. Whereas this guy could dance very well. But would he act the same to the Europeans which comes to Africa? He told till morning about how they threat the guests, how hospitable African people are… And he couldn’t understand this exclusion in European cities.

In the city which Olcay and his roommate lived, refugees used to meet at the corner of main train station. When you see one of the refugee camps in a city, its enough to go one corner of that main stations. They come together at those places to find someone to talk and share problems because it was not easy for them to enter into the society. Not being able to included into the public places is not only because of the language. Skin color and public status were determinants of this issue. Olcay had written a poem named “ From the Exterior” about this topic. Olcay was glad to be with the oppressed class like himself. He always liked to observe those environments. He always preferred and continued to live in refugee camps instead of living at a flat after he had applied to refugee process. By this way, he could reorganize strong resistance against to these inhuman treatments.

Although Olcay tried to explain those experiences to his friends which are pretty new for being refugees, he had promoted Hüsnü’s insistence about doing something different tonight and by this way the night had started.

Firstly they went to a cafe which is known as “alternative” but they couldn’t find an empty table when they went inside. Than they saw a table near a group of people but there were no chairs. At this point Hüsnü’s initiative stepped in. He asked a woman from the group with his good German “ Kann ich der Tisch haben? (Can I get the table?)”. The woman told him that he had stated the sentence wrong and corrected him ; “ You must say “ Kann ich den Tisch haben?” He couldn’t have used “artikel” in the sentence correctly. He replied the woman in German “ Okey , I got it! You did sure understand what I mean! Thanks for correcting me though!” and took the table with his strong arms and placed it in front of his friends. He found and brought a couple of chairs too. They started to discuss “Artikels” in German after they sat down. They talked about that even some Germans can not use the “Artikels” correctly.

Klad had came to Germany over another European country. He was working as a constructor and sometimes he let the refugees to work with him which have no working permission. They started to talk about the resistance of workers in Köln in 1973. It was known as Resistance of Ford Factory which was declared as a “Terrorist Strike” by German government and German media. At least 12 thousand workers did strike here and most of those workers were from Turkey. IG Metal Union and German workers did physical attacks with German police and as a result, a communist worker from Turkey who leaded the strikes had been deported. After the chat, Klad said that he had to go home. Then he said goodbye to everyone and left.

The refugees were again sitting as groups in Alternative Cafe. No one was sitting at the same table with the locals, that was spontaneous situation. People were chatting and laughing each other in other tables. Hüsnü and friends had played table soccer in the cafe. Again the players were only refugees. They were always separated in every place they get in. After some time they got bored and decided to go to the bars in city center, due to Hüsnü’s plan.

First attempt to enter the first bar had became unsuccessful. They pied at the corner after they left the queue. There were no toilets around. Moreover they did this to protest the rejection from the bar. Then Hüsnü said “ we will definitely enter the second bar, I’ll try a different tactic.” While walking on the street desperately, Hüsnü asked a couple of women to help them; “We want to enter the club but they don’t let us in. Can you come with us as our friends into the bar? Then you can go if you want” but he had been rejected every time ; “No!”

There was a big yard before the main entrance of the second bar and the this yard was covered with gratings. You have to pass through a barred door to reach the queue in front of the main entrance. So Hüsnü and his friends did that and started to walk through the queue. At this time two security came and stopped them. One of the securities was talking Chechenian, the other was talking Arabic and little bit German. Both of them had long beards and were weareing the jackets that are special to securities. One of them was translating was Hüsnü was saying for the other. One of the securities was telling Hüsnü why they can not go inside. Hüsnü was correcting the German sentences of the security; “ Varum oder vuğum?”. He was trying to tell that he is speaking better German than those two securities, that he is a pretty normal person and he was asking why he has no permission to enter the bar. “ You guys are not German either, you are immigrants too; why don’t you let us in?” The securities were foreigners and they were not letting the foreigners to get in. That was a big paradox! If you were working at a job and you make your boss make more money, your color and your language skills were not very important. But it was a huge problem when you try to enter a club! The discussion between Hüsnü and friends and securities lasted long. Finally the securities said; “we will have to call the police if you don’t leave here now!” The second attempt to enter the bar was also not successful. The attitude for refugees and immigrants had became stricter because of the events that happened last year in Köln and truck event that happened this year in Berlin.

Hüsnü was thinking that they were rejected two times because of wrong tactics. He was thinking that they were rejected because they were not speaking good German except him. Then he told that he will try alone to enter the bar this time. Olcay said “ Okey then if you think so, we are waiting for you at the corner.” Hüsnü started to walk confidently through the entrance of another bar. There was civilian security at the entrance. Security said “ Personal Ausweis bitte! (Personal ID please!)” Hüsnü put his hand to his pocket and gave the blue-green ID card (which is only for refugees) to the security. Security gave the card to Hüsnü back and said “ we don’t get the people inside who has this type of ID.” Hüsnü was no longer calm and he became really mad; “ I’m speaking good German, I’m from Berlin, I was born in Berlin, why don’t you let me in! What’s the difference between me and those people!”… he was rioting this debauchery and unfair treatments. Unfortunately, third attempt to enter the night club was unsuccessful too.

Four friends were walking in the street, between people but alone. Olcay had known already that it would end like that but again he didn’t want to prevent his friends. He was thinking that learning with experiences is a more effective method than others. He had tried this method before to organize the working class too. He took the workers to the places in luxury and tried to show them the huge division between workers and riches and told them the reasons of this division while letting them to observe and feel it.

After unsuccessful attempts of going to the night club, they decided to turn back. Olcay was telling his frieds “ Look! We are refugees , we have tried and saw that we don’t have the same rights with others” all the way long. Speaking the language in a good level was not enough, this racism and inequality have had deeper roots. Olcay was telling his friends his resistance experiences. He told about their 600 km long freedom walk to Berlin. They had done this walk because of prohibition of free movement, closure of refugee camps and deportation of refugees. They had teared the IDs up and posted to Foreigners Section , the same ID which Hüsnü had showed the security guy at the entrance. This protests lasted long years. But the protesters had broken the isolation of the refugee camps, they built up tents at the areas they had occupied and tried a communal lifestyle. Occupation of the parliament, occupation of political party buildings, occupation of houses, roofs… And they had organized successful Europe-wide protests against to the borders.

Olcay; “ Yes dear Hüsnü, without resistance we can not gain our freedoms. Having a good language skill is not enough as you see. All the rights that had been gained in the history were the results of long and hard resistances. Dominant class do not give you freedom, rights and freedoms can be achieved with struggle.” was trying to explain his friends.

Four friends got on the metro to go to the cafe where they were at the beginning. A woman who was sitting next to Hüsnü, started to take photos inside the train. Hüsnü said her “ You don’t have rights to take photos without permission.” And the woman said “ Everybody is free, I can do whatever I want”. Then Hüsnü said “ okey then , I will take pictures of you!”. The woman said “ No! You can’t!” Hüsnü got really angry. Some people have right to do everything, some people can not. What kind of a system was that! Hüsnü argued with this woman loudly and for a long time. Other people in the metro watched this discussion with shocked eyes and no one promoted Hüsnü’s riot against to this injustice. Everybody was responsible from themselves. Big majority of the society was not saying anything against to an unfair treatment when it is not harming them.

After this experience, Mehmet and Ferit understood that its not possible to include into German society with wearing like them, with modern hairstyles and with smart phones that worth thousand euros. On the way, they spoke about “wir sind penahende”, we are refugees and that’s why we were not accepted. They see us different.” Refugees Welcome; they’ve heard that several times but in real life it had no meaning. They have learned that with experiencing.

People were visiting their parents or relatives, organizing parties, going to holiday in Christmas Eve. But refugees didn’t have those chances. Instead they were meeting each other at home, chatting and cooking traditional foods. That was their way of celebrating Christmas. Actually Hüsnü and his frieds were kind of lucky. There were a lot of refugees that are living in refugee camps in forests, far away from society and social life and they didn’t have chance to communicate with people. Even communicating with people had been achieved with resistance. Hüsnü and his friends were able to visit some cafes and that had been achieved by resistance. Some cafes were organizing solidarity meetings with refugees.

Sometimes, Hüsnü and his friends are meeting in a cafe , drinking tee, cooking traditional foods from different cultures, organizing film shows and seminars. They are trying to share the resistance experiences with new refugees with publishing a newspaper in different languages.

The next day, they again met at a friend’s house and cooked food, watched theaters and listened to musics that are made about the problems of migrants and refugees. But Ferit was not happy today. They have learned that Ferit got a letter yesterday and deportation judgment is made about him. They suddenly put their heads together and started to think while they were consoling Ferit. Finally they set an appointment to a lawyer in order challenge the decision of deportation. They translated the letter for Ferit. They had stopped several deportations with resistance and struggle. Moreover, Klad told them that they had prevented a deportation with occupying the airplane. Ferit was now more hopeful. It must be resisted against to injustice. Isolation, outsiderdom, inequality could only be prevented like that. Refugees didn’t come to Europe with pleasure. The reasons of continuing war and suffer in their geographies were those dominant powers.

As the meetings continued, the content of their conversations started to be more politic. The words “ war, exploitation, capitalism” started to be heard more then before even in their jokes.

TURGAY ULU – BERLIN

EVİNİZE GİDİN

Kuyruktaki sıra onlara geldiğinde, yeleğinin üst cebinde telsiz bulunan güvenlik görevlisi onlara; “sen, sen, sen ve sen evlerinize gidiyorsunuz” dedi. Hüsnü, “ama niye, ama niye” diye başlayan ısrarlı sorular yöneltiyordu. Hüsnü’nün bu sorgulamaları bir işe yaramamıştı. Güvenlik görevlisi ona kentteki kuralları anlatıyordu. “İçeride kadınlar var, misafirlerimizin çantaları, değerli eşyaları var” diye başlayan cümlelerde kuralları sıralamaya devam etti. Hüsnü ve arkadaşları sorgulayan bakışları ve dışlanmışlığın verdiği eziklikle kuyruktan çıkıp, sokağın başına doğru geri döndüler.

Olcay, telefondaki daveti duyunca bu davetin bir eylem hazırlığı olduğunu düşünüp heyecanlanmıştı. Buluşma saati geldiğinde Olcay, Hüsnü’nun yeni kiraladığı evi bulmakta zorlandı. Uzun hapislik ve gördüğü işkencelerin etkisinden olsa gerek, adres bulmak ve yön tayin etmek onun için bir çeşit işkenceydi. Neyse ki Hüsnü, kapının önüne çıkıp Olcay’ı beklediği yanlış apartmanın önünden aldı. Birlikte asansörü olmayan binanın en üst katına çıktılar.

Dağınık durumda olan evin mutfağındaki tahta masanın üzerinde patates, biber gibi yemeklik malzemeler vardı. Hüsnü, yemek yapmaya hazırlanıyordu. Olcay, masanın üstündeki malzemeleri Hüsnü’nün tarif ettiği biçimde doğramaya başladı. Hüsnü, her zamanki kendine güvenli tavırlarıyla memleket yemeğini iyi yapacağını anlatıyordu. Hüsnü, uzun boylu, atletik yapılı gövdesiyle bir yandan tenceleri ocağa koyuyor bir yandan da eve davet ettiği arkadaşlarıyla sohbet ediyordu. Selma, Ferit ve Mehmet ellerindeki telefondan birbirlerine bazı resimler gösterip gülüşüyorlardı. Hüsnü, arada bir telefonu onların elinden çekip görüntülerle ilgili yorumlar yapıyordu. “Hepinizin cebinde bin euroluk telefonlar var ama başka şeyler için para bulamıyorsunuz” diyerek onları eleştiriyordu. Mehmet, telefonunu musluktan akan sıak suyun altında yıkayarak onun ne kadar dayanıklı bir alet olduğunu el ve kafa işaretleriyle mutfakta bulunan diğer arkadaşlarına anlatmaya çalışıyordu.

Uzun bir hazırlığın sonunda yemekler hazır hale gelmişti. Hep birlikte yemek yerken bir yandan da yemeğin nasıl olduğu üzerine yorumlar yapıyorlardı. Patates yeteri kadar pişmemişti. Hüsnü, bunun sorumlusu olarak Ferit’i gösterdi. Annesinin bu yemeği ne kadar lezzetli yaptığını anlatıyordu. Terkettiği memleketinde abisiyle birlikte bahçede yaptıkları şaraplardan özlemle söz ediyordu. Memleket anılarını anlatırken gözleri buğulanıyor, derin bir hasret çektiği anlaşılıyordu.

Yaşı genç olan Selma, hazırlık sürecinde orda olsa da yeme aşamasında bilinmeyen bir nedenle evden ayerılmıştı. Yaşamakta olduğu kampa geç kalmak onun için iyi olmazdı. Mülteci kamplarındaki sıkı kontrol sistemi onların hayatlarını sınırlıyıordu. Sürekli bu kontrol sisteminin sınırları içinde yaşamak zorundaydılar.

Yemeğe en son gelen Klad, yanında kırmızı bir Portekiz şarabı getirmişti. Hüsnü ve Olcay şaraptan ilk tadanlar oldu. Diğerleri alkol içmekte yeterince kararlı değillerdi. “Helal” ve “haram” kavramları üzerine esprili sohbetler sardı mutfağı. Yoksullar için her yerde sınırlar vardı. Ne yapılır, ne yapılmaz sorularını belirleyen kurallar; gelenekler, dinler ve sistemler tarafından belirleniyordu. Bu akşam biraz bu sınırları çiğnemek herkesin üzerinde ortaklaştığı konu oldu. Kentte yılbaşı hazırlıkları vardı. Toplumun diğer kesimleri tatil ve eylence hazırlıkları yapıyorlardı. Onlar bu atmosferin içine dahil olma hissinden uzaklardı.

Hüsnü, “Olcay abi bu gece biraz farklı şeyler yapalım ne dersin, mesela klübe gdelim bu gece.” Olcay, diğer arkadaşlarına göre biraz daha eski bir mülteciydi ve şehirdeki hayatı biraz daha iyi biliyordu. Bu konuda deneyimleri vardı. Hannover şehrinde bir keresinde mülteci kampındaki oda arkadaşıyla birlikte, oda arkadaşının isteği üzerine diskoya gitmeyi denemişlerdi. Diskonun kapısında duran bekçi, Olcay’ın yanındaki siyah arkadaşını içeri almak istememişti. Bekçi Olcay’a ”sen içeri girebilirsin ama bu siyah arkadaşının içeri girmesi yasak” demişti. Bunun üzerine Olcay ve oda arkadaşı üzgün ve kırgın bir şekilde mülteci kampına geri dönmek zorunda kalmışlardı. O gün sabaha kadar Olcay’ın siyah oda arkadaşı çok üzgün ve tepkili ruh haliyle uyuyamamıştı. Olcay’ın oda arkadaşı çok güzel dans ederdi halbuki. Oysa Afrika’ya gelen Avrupalılara yerliler böyle mi davranırlardı. Yerlilerin misafirperliklerini, her insana saygı duyduklarını anlattı sabaha kadar, Olcay’ın oda karkadaşı Avrupa kentlerindeki bu dışlamalara bir türlü anlam veremiyordu.

Olcay’ın oda arkadaşıyla birlikte kaldıkları şehirde, mülteciler; sanki önceden sözleşmiş gibi merkez tren istasyonunun bir köşesinde buluşurlardı. Şehirdeki mülteci kamplarından birini görmek istiyorsan tren istasyonunun yanındaki bu köşeye gittiğinde bulursun onu. Toplumsal ortamlara girmek onlar için kolay olmadığı için köşelerde kendiliğinden buluşma ve dertleşme noktaları oluşuyordu. Toplumsal ortamlara dahil olamamak sadece dil bilmemekle bağlantılı bir durum değildi. Renk farklılığı ve sosyal sınıf farklılığı bu ayrışmada belirleyici etkenlerdi. Olcay, bu tablo üzerine bir şiir kaleme almıştı. Şiirinin ismi “Hariçten” di. Olcay, kendisi gibi toplumun ezilen sınıflarından insanlarla bir arada olmaktan hoşnutluk duyuyordu. Bu tür ortamları gözlemlemeyi seviyordu. İltica ettiğinden beri evlerde kalmayı tercih etmemiş, kendisi gibi mültecilerin kaldığı kamplarda kalmayı tercih etmişti. Böylece bu insanlık dışı koşullara karşı etkili direnişler örgütleme hayali ve çabasıyla geçiriyordu günlerini.

Olcay, tüm bu deneyimlerini Hüsnü’ye ve odada bulunan diğer yeni mülteci arkadaşlarına anlatmaya çalıştı. Ama gene de Hüsnü’nün “bu gece değişik bir şeyler yapalım” önerisini destekledi ve gece macerası böylece başlamış oldu.

Önce “alternatif” olarak bilinen bir cafeye gittiler. Kapıdan içeriye girdiklerinde boş masa bulamadılar. Hüsnü her zaman ki girişkenliğiyle devreye girdi. Yan taraftakilerin yaındaki masa boştu ve etrafında sandalyeler yoktu. Hüsnü iyi bildiği Almancasıyla yan tarafta oturan topluluktan bir kadına; “boş masayı alabilir miyim” diye sordu. Hüsnü; “kann ich der Tisch haben” dedi. Kadın ona cümleyi yanlış kurduğunu söyledi: “Nein falsch, du muss den Tisch sagen nicht den Tisch” diye cevap verdi. Hüsnü cümledeki artikeli doğru kullanamamıştı. Kadına Almanca; “tamam anladık, sen ne dediğimi anladın masaya ihtiyacımız var düzelttiğin için teşekkür ederim” dedi ve masayı öfkeli bir şekilde, güçlü elleriyle arkadaşlarının olduğu yere yerleştirdi. Bir kaç da boş sandalye buldu getirdi. Masaya oturduklarında Almancadaki artikeller üzerine sohbetler ettiler. Cümle kuruşlarında bazı artikelleri Alman olanların bile tam kullanamadıkları üzerine sohbet ettiler.

Klad, başka bir Avrupa ülkesinden gelmişti Almanya’ya. İnşaat işlerinde çalışıyordu, bazen yanında, çalışma hakkı olmayan mültecileri de çalıştırıyordu. Kald ile 1973’te Köln kentinde yaşanan Ford fabrikasındaki işçi direnişi üzerine sahbet ettiler. Bu sahbete sadece Klad ve Olcay iştirak etmişlerdi Misafir işçilerin çalışmış olduğu Ford fabrikası grevi, Almanya basını ve devleti tarafından “terörist grev” olarak ilan edilmişti. Çoğunluğu Türkiyeli olan, onikibin işçi grev yapmışlardı burada. İG Metal sendikası ve Alman işçiler polislerle beraber greve karşı fiziki saldırılar yapmışlardı ve grevin öncülüğünü çeken bir Türkiyeli komünisti olaylar sonrasında sınır dışı etmişlerdi. Bu sohbetten sonra Klad eve gitmek zorunda olduğunu belirtip arkadaşlarıyla vedalaştı ve gitti.

Altarnatif cafede de gene mülteciler öbek öbek bir aradaydılar. Kentin yerlileriyle karışık bir masada oturulmuyordu, bu kendiliğinden oluşan bir durumdu. Diğer masalarda sohbetler ediliyor, kahkahalar atılıyordu. Hüsnü ve arkadaşları cafede bulunan langıt oynadılar biraz. Langırt oynarken de gene tüm oyuncular mülteciydi. Girdikleri ortamlarda hep ayrık duruyorlardı. Bir süre sonra buradan sıkıldılar ve Hüsnü’nün planıyla şehir merkezindeki klüplere gitmek üzere yola çıktılar.

İlk klübe gitme grişimi başarısız olmuştu. Kuyruktan ayrıldıklarında ıssız bir köşeye işediler. İşemek için bir tuvalet yoktu. Birazda klubün önünden kovulmaya bir tepkiyle yapmışlardı bu işeme eylemini. Hüsnü; “ikinci klübe kesin gireceğiz bakın ben şimdi değişik taktikler deneyeceğim” dedi. Caddede umutsuz bir halde yürürlerken Hüsnü, bir kaç kadına; “bize yardımcı olur musunuz, klübe girmek istiyoruz ama bizi almıyorlar, bizim arkadaşımızsınız gibi yanımızda gelin birlikte klübe gidelim sonra siz isterseniz çıkarsınız” demişti ama tüm bu girişimleri “hayır” denilerek geri çevrilmişti.

İkinci klübün giriş kapısından önce geniş bir boşluk alan vardı. Bu alanın etrafı demir parmaklıklarla kapalıydı ve giriş kapısının önündeki uzun kuyruğa ulaşmak için önce demir parmaklıklı kapıdan geçmek gerekirdi. Hüsnü ve arkadaşları demir kapıdan girerek klübe giriş kapısının önündeki kuyruğa doğru yürümeye başladılar. Hızlı adımlarla iki bekçi onlara doğru geldiler ve onları durdular. Bekçilerden biri Çecence konuşuyordu, diğeri de Arapça ve biraz da almanca konuşuyordu. İikisi de uzun sakallıydı ve üzerlerinde bekçilere özel üniforma vardı. Biri diğerine Hüsnülerin söylediklerini tercüme ediyordu. Bekçilerden biri, Hüsnülere neden klübe giremeyeceklerini anlatıyordu. Hüsnü, bekçinin kurduğu Almanca cümleleri düzeltiyordu; “varum oder vuğum” diye söze başlayıp aslında kendisinin bu bekçilerden iyi Almanca konuştuğunu, gayet normal bir insan olduğunu ve neden klübe alınmadığını anlatıyordu. “Bakın siz de Alman değilsiniz, siz de göçmensiniz neden bizi içeri almıyorsunuz” diye bekçileri soru yağmuruna tutuyordu. Klübün önünde bekçilik işin de çalışanlar da göçmendiler ama başka mülteci ve göçmenleri içeri almıyorlardı. Enterasan bir çelişki vardı burda. Bir işte çalışıp patronlara para kazandırıyorsan dil bilmemen, rengin hiç önemli değil ama içeri girmek için bunlar sorundu. Hüsnü ve arkadaşlarıyla bekçiler arasındaki tartışma uzun sürdü. Bekçiler “burayı hemen terketmezseniz polis çağıracağız” diyorlardı. O akşam ikinci deneme de başarısız olmuştu. Geçen yılbaşında Köln kentinde yaşanan olaylar ve Berlin’de bu yıl yaşanan tır olayından sonra mülteci ve göçmenlere karşı tutumlar sertleşmişti.

Hüsnü, iki deneme de de yanlış taktikler uyguladıklarını düşünüyordu. Kendisi dışındakilerin iyi Almanca konuşamadıkları için klübe alınmadıklarını düşünüyordu. Bu sefer kendisinin tek başına içeri girmeyi deneyeceğini söyledi. Olcay, “tamam madem öyle düşünüyorsun dene bakalım biz köşede seni bekliyoruz” dedi. Hüsnü, kendinden emin adımlarla başka bir klübün kapısına doğru yürüdü. Kapının hemen girişinde sivil giyimli bir bekçi vardı. Bekçi, Hüsnü’ye “parsonal ausweis bitte” dedi. Hüsnü, arka cebindeki cuzdanından mavi renkli, mülteciler için verilen kimliği çıkarttı ve bekçiye uzattı. Bekçi “bu geçerli değil, bu kimliğe sahip olanları klübe almıyoruz” diyerek mavi mülteci kimliğini Hüsnü’ye geri uzattı. Hüsnü artık iyice sinirlenmişti. “Ben iyi Almanca konuşabiliyorum, ben Berlinliyim, ben Berlin’de doğdum neden içeri almıyorsunuz beni, benim diğer insanlardan ne eksiğim var” diye başlayan cümlelerle bu dışlanmışlığa isyan ediyordu. Ne var ki üçüncü klüp denemesi de başarısız olmuştu.

Dört arkadaş insan kalabalıkları içinde ama yalnızlık duygularıyla yürüyorlardı. Olcay, başından beri böyle olacağını biliyordu ancak arkadaşlarını engellemedi, görerek, yaşayarak anlamanın daha etkili ve doğru bir metod olduğunu düşünüyordu. İşçi sınıfı içindeki örgütlenme çalışmalarında da bu yöntemi denemişti. İşçileri zenginlerin mekanlarına götürüp, zenginlerle yoksullar arasındaki hayatın farklılıklarını ve nedenlerini onlara göstererek ve hissettirerek anlatmıştı.

Hüssnü ve arkadaşları başarısız klüp macerasından sonra geri dönmeye karar verdiler. Yol boyunca Olcay, “bakın biz mülteciyiz denedik ve gördük diğer insanlarla eşit haklara sahip değiliz” diyordu. Dili iyi bilmek eşitlik için yeterli değil, bu eşitsizliğin ve ırkçılığın daha derin kökleri var. Olcay, arkadaşlarına direniş deneyimlerini anlatıyordu. Altıyüz kilometrelik, Berlin’e kadar yaptıkları özgürlük yürüyüşünü anlattı. Yürüyüşü dolaşım yasağı, mülteci kamplarının kapatılması ve sınırdışıların durdurulmaı talebiyle yapmışlardı. Yürüyüş sırasında, Hüsnü’nün klüp bekçisine gösterdiği mavi renkli ve içinde yasakların yazılı olduğu mülteci kimliklerini yırtarak yabancılar şubesine postalamışladı. Yıllarca süren bu diernişlerinde, mülteci kamplarının izolasyonunu kırıp, işgal ettikleri alanlarda çadırlar kurmuş ve komünal bir hayatı denemişlerdi. Parlemento işgali, siyasi parti merkezlerinin işgali, ev işgalleri, çatı işgalleri ve Avrupa çapında, sınırlara karşı etkili eylemler örgütlemişlerdi.

Olcay; “işte böyle Hüsnücüğüm, mücadele etmeden özgürlüklerimizi kazanamayız. Sadece dil bilmek özgür olmak için yetmiyor görüyorsun. Tarihte ezilen insanların kazandakları haklar zorlu ve uzun mücadelelerle gerçekleşmiştir. Egemen sınıflar kimseye özgürlük bahşetmezler, haklar ve özgürlükler mücadele edilerek elde edilir” diye arkadaşlarına anlatmaya çalışıyordu.

Dört kafadar ilk gittikleri cafeye geri dönmek için metroya bindiler. Hüsnü’nün yan koltuğunda otururan bir kadın metronun içini fotoğrafladı. Hüsnü ona; “neden insanlara sormadan resim çekiyorsun buna hakkın yok” dedi kadına. Kadın “herke özgür ne istersem onu yaparım” diye karşılık verdi. Hüsnü; “peki o zaman ben de senin fotoğrafını çekeyim” dedi. Kadın; “hayır olmaz” dedi. Hüsnü bu duruma çok sinirlenmıştı. Bazı insanlar istediği herşeyi yapıyor, bazı insanlar bunları yapamıyor bu nasıl bir sisitem diye düşünüyordu. Hüsnü uzun bir süre fotoğraf çeken kadınla sinirli ve sesli bir şekilde tartıştı. Metrodaki diğer yolcular da bu tartışmayı şaşkın gözlerle izlediler ve hiç birisi Hüsnü’nün bu eşitsizliğe karşı isyanını desteklemedi. Herkes kendinden menkuldu. Kendilerine zararı olmayan hiç bir haksızlığa toplumun büyük bir çoğunluğu isyan etmiyordu.

Ferit ve Mehmet, ellerindeki bin euroluk telefonlarla ve Almanlar gibi giyinerek, ya da onlar gibi saçlarını şekillendirerek toplumsal hayatın içine dahil olunamayacağını bu denemelerden sonra anlamaya başlamışlardı. Yol boyunca “wir sind penahende” biz mülteciyiz bu nedenle bizi farklı görüyorlar insanlar. “Mülteciler hoşgeldi” gibi çok duydukları sözlerin aslında gerçek yaşamda bir karşılığı yoktu . Bunu yaşayarak görüyorlardı.

Yılbaşı arefesinde insanlar akrabalarını ziyarete gidiyorlar, tatile gidiyorlar, partiler, eylenceler düzenliyorlar. Mültecilerin ise bu olanakları ve seçenekleri yok. Onlar da birbirleriyle evlerde buluşup memleket yemekleri yapıyor ve sohbetler ederek yılbaşını geçirmeye çalışıyorlardı. Hüsnü ve arkadaşları gene şanslı sayılırdı. Mültecilerin bsüyük çoğunluğu uzun yıllar, şehirden uzak, ormanların içine kurulmuş mülteci kamplarından dışarı çıkma, toplumla ilişki kurma şansına sahip değiller. Toplumla bağ kurmak bile mücadele ile olur. Hüsnü ve arkadaşlaranın bazı cafelere gidiyor olabilmesi bile gerçekleştirdikleri mücadelenin sonucunda olmuştur. Bazı cafeler direnen mültecilerle ilgili dayanışma etkinlikleri düzenliyorlardı.

Hüsnü ve arkadaşları bazı günlerde dernek ya da cafelerde buluşup birlikte değişik ülkelerin yemeklerinden yapıyorlar, çay yapıyorlar, film gösterimi ve seminerler düzenliyorlar. Değişik dillerde gazete çıkartarak yeni gelen mültecilere Olcayların direniş deneyimini aktarmaya çalışıyorlar.

Ertesi gün gene bir arkadaşlarının evinde buluşup yemek yaptılar. İnternetten mülteci ve göçmenlerin sorunları üzerine yapılmış müzik ve tiyatroları izlediler. Ancak Ferit bugün hiç keyifli değildi. Öğrendiler ki Ferit dün bir mektup almış ve hakkında sınırdışı kararı verilmiş. Hemen kafa kafaya verip bir yandan Ferit’i teselli ederken bir yandan da karara itiraz hakkını kullanmak için avukatla görüşme ayarladılar. Mektubu Ferit’e tercüme ettiler. Daha önce birçok sınırdışı işlemini mücadele ederek durdurmuşlardı. Hatta Klad onlara, sınırdışı edilmek üzere uçağa bindirilen bir mülteciyi uçağı işgal ederek nasıl durdurduklarını anlatmıştı. Ferit şimdi daha umutluydu. Haksızlıklara karşı mücadele edilmeliydi. İzolasyon, dışlanmışlık ve eşitsizlik ancak böyle kırılabilirdi. Mülteciler avrupaya keyiflerinden gelmiyorlar. Yaşadıkları coğrafyalarda süren savaş ve çatışmaların nedeni işte bu egemen kapitalist devletlerdi.

Buluşmalar devam ettikçe Hüsnü ve arkadaşlarının sohbet konuşmaları daha bir politik içerik kazanıyordu. Artık esprilerinde kapitalizm, savaş, sömürü gibi kelimeler daha sık duyulur olmuştu.

Welcome2stay Aufruf zu bundesweiten Aktionstagen ‚Welcome2stay‘ vom 18. bis zum 23. März 2017

English, Français and Arabic below! انجليزي وعربي تحت! Einfaches Deutsch unten! Alle Flyer unten!

Für das Recht zu kommen, zu gehen und zu bleiben

Das europäische System der Abschottung wird noch brutaler, Deutschland geht mit immer mehr Abschiebungen voran – lasst uns gemeinsam laut werden! Beteiligt Euch an den bundesweiten Aktionstagen vom 18. bis zum 23. März 2017 für Bleiberecht und gleiche soziale Rechte für alle. Zeigt Eure
solidarischen Netzwerke, Eure Kämpfe und Eure Visionen von einer Gesellschaft in der Migration keine Bedrohung ist.

Zu diesen bundesweiten Aktionstagen rufen wir, vom Bündnis Welcome2Stay, auf. Welcome2Stay ist ein Netzwerk aus verschiedenen Gruppen und Organisationen des Antirassismus, der migrantischen Selbstorganisation und der Willkommensinitiativen.

Wir fanden uns im Anschluss an den sogenannten „Sommer der Migration 2015“ zusammen, um gemeinsam eine zivilgesellschaftliche Stimme zu entwickeln. Auf einem Kongress im Juni 2016 einigten wir uns, auf die Kernforderungen nach gleichen sozialen Rechten für alle und dem Recht zu kommen, zu gehen und zu bleiben.

Jetzt wollen wir aktiv werden und gemeinsam unseren Forderungen Ausdruck verleihen. Die Aktionstage sollen die Stimmen dieser solidarischen Gesellschaft hörbar machen. Sie sollen zeigen, an wie vielen Orten die ganz praktische Umsetzung dieser Forderungen schon gelebt wird. Ebenfalls sollen sie ein Zeichen gegen den aktuellen Rechtsruck innerhalb der Gesellschaft setzten und gegen den Trend des autoritären
nach-unten-Tretens. Egal ob Straßenaktion, Demo, Nachbarschaftsfest oder Infostand: Macht Euch sichtbar, zeigt Eure Arbeit, zeigt Eure Kämpfe und Visionen. Werdet erfinderisch und vor allem: schickt uns Videos, Berichte und Fotos davon. Wir haben für die zentrale Organisation der Tage ein Team zusammengestellt, das die verschiedenen Aktionen koordiniert, Öffentlichkeitsarbeit macht und auch sonst für all Eure Fragen zur Verfügung steht. Für all dies wird es auch noch eine große Arbeitskonferenz in Göttingen am 14. Januar geben (s.u.).

Aufgrund der aktuellen Situation soll im Mittelpunkt des Aktionstages das Bleiberecht stehen: Die in den letzten Monaten verabschiedeten Asylpakete, in denen so genannte sichere Herkunftsstaaten definiert
wurden, haben bereits zu einem massiven Anstieg von Abschiebungen in winterkalte osteuropäische Länder geführt. Die Abkommen mit einigen afrikanischen Staaten, sowie mit Afghanistan lassen weitere
Massenabschiebungen in nächster Zeit befürchten. Vermutlich werden in den nächsten Monaten zehntausende Afghan*innen in ein vom Krieg zerstörtes und immer noch von kriegerischen Auseinandersetzungen gekennzeichnetes Land zurückgeschickt.

Warum das Wochenende vom 18. März 2017? An diesem Tag jährt sich die Unterzeichnung des EU-Türkei Deals, der die „Regulierung der Flüchtlingsströme“ zum Ziel hat und so zur Brutalisierung des
europäischen Grenzregimes beiträgt. Mit dem Aufruf zu Aktionen an diesem Tag reihen wir uns ein, in einen europaweiten Protest gegen das brutale Grenzregime und den Kampf für Bewegungsfreiheit, sowie das Recht auf Ankommen und Bleiben. So ruft auch das Hotel City Plaza in Athen zu Aktionen auf. Das Hotel City Plaza wurde vor einem halben Jahr besetzt und dient seit dem als siebenstöckiges, selbstverwaltetes Zuhause für Geflüchtete und Ort des Antirassismus und der Solidarität. (Hier findet Ihr den Aufruf:
http://solidarity2refugees.gr/international-call-city-plaza-18-march-european-day-action/)

Um unsere Aktionen zu koordinieren und uns über Aktionsformen und
Handlungsansätze auszutauschen, einander zu inspirieren und zu ermutigen, laden wir zu einer Arbeitskonferenz am 14. Januar 2017 von 12 – 17 h in die Musa in Göttingen ein.


 

Call for nationwide action days ‚Welcome2Stay‘ from 18th to the 23rd March 2017
For the right to come, to go and to stay

The European system of exclusion is getting more and more brutal. Germany is going ahead with more and more deportations – Let us raise our voice together! Join the nationwide days of action for a right to
stay and equal social rights for everyone from 18th to 23rd of March. Show your solidarity, your struggles and your visions of a society in which migration does not pose a threat.

Welcome2Stay is calling for these nationwide action days. We are a network of various groups and organisations working in the field of antiracism, self-organisation of migrants and welcoming initiatives.
Following the so called “Summer of migration 2015” we came together to develop a common civic voice and on a congress in June 2016 we agreed on two core demands for equal social rights and the right to come, to go and to stay.

Now we want to spring into action and express our common demands. The action days are supposed to raise attention to the voice of this solidary society. They are supposed to show that the practical application of these demands is already happening in many places. They are also supposed to take a stance against the current rightward shift in society and against the trend of authoritarian kicking down. It does
not matter if street action, demo, neighbourhood party or information booth: Take a stand. Show your work, show your struggles and show your visions. Get creative and above all send us videos, reports and pictures of it. We put together a team for the central organisation and coordination of the various activities on these action days. It will be also responsible for public relations and for any other questions. For all of this there will be also a big conference in Göttingen on the 14th January (see below).

Due to the current situation the focus of the action days will be on the right to stay. The adopted asylum packages, which state the so called safe countries of origin, led to a massive increase of deportations to
ice-cold eastern European countries. After the conclusion of agreements with some African states as well as with Afghanistan we fear further mass deportations in the near future. Probably in the next few months
ten thousands of Afghans will be send back to a country, which is still destroyed by war and suffers from military conflicts.

Why did we choose the weekend of 18th March 2017? On this day will be the anniversary of the ratification of the EU-Turkey deal. The objective of this deal was the “regulation of refugees’ flows”, which is
contributing to the brutalisation of the European border regime. With this call for the 18th March we are joining the Europe-wide protests against the brutal boarder regime and struggle for freedom of movement as well as the right to come and stay. Also the Hotel City Plaza in Athens is calling for action. This 7 floor hotel was squatted half a year ago and serves since then as a self-administrated home for refugees and as a place of antiracism and solidarity. (Here you can find
the call: http://solidarity2refugees.gr/international-call-city-plaza-18-march-european-day-action/)

We invite you to our conference on 14th January 2017 in Göttingen (place and time will be announced). We invite you to coordinate our actions and to exchange views on our forms and approaches of action. We invite you to inspire and encourage each other. We invite you to our conference.


 

Rencontre de mouvements du bienvenue, de la solidarité, de la migration et de l’antiracisme

Appel aux journées d’actions « welcome2stay » du 18 au 23 mars 2017 dans toute l’Allemagne
Pour le droit de venir, de partir et de rester

Le système européen de l’isolation devient de plus en plus violent, l’Allemagne marche devant en augmentant le nombre de reconduites – Allons ! Devenons plus forts ensemble !
Participez aux journées d’actions du 18 au 23 mars 2017 pour le droit de séjour et des droits sociaux égaux pour toutes et tous. Présentez vos réseaux solidaires, vos luttes et vos visions d’une société où la migration n’est pas une menace.

Nous, l’alliance « welcome2stay », appelons à ces journées d’actions ayant lieu en toute l’Allemagne. « Welcome2stay » est un réseau de différents groupes et organisations de l’antiracisme, de la gestion autonome migrante et d’initiatives d’accueil.
Nous nous sommes retrouvés après le dit « été de la migration 2015 » pour développer ensemble une voix de la société civile. Lors d’un congrès en juin 2016, on s’est mis en accord sur les demandes de droits sociaux égaux pour toutes et tous et le droit de venir, de partir et de rester.

Maintenant, on veut devenir actif pour exprimer ensemble nos demandes. Les journées d’action ont pour but de rendre audible la voix de cette société solidaire. Elles visent sur le but de montrer à combien de lieux la mise en pratique de ces demandes est déjà réalisée. De plus, elles devraient ouvrir la voie contre l’actuelle poussée à droite dans la société et contre la tendance autoritaire de donner des coups de pieds vers le bas de la société. Peut importe si action dans la rue, manifestation, fête de voisinage ou stand d’information : Rendez-vous visible, montrez votre travail, montrez vos luttes et vos visions. Devenez inventifs et avant tout : envoyez-nous-en des vidéos, des rapports et des photos. Pour l’organisation centrale de ces jours, nous avons crée une équipe qui coordonne les différentes actions, qui travaille dans les relations publiques et qui est à votre disposition pour toutes vos questions. Pour tout cela, il y aura encore une grande conférence de travail à Göttingen le 14 janvier 2017 (voir ci-dessous).

À cause de la situation actuelle, le droit de séjour sera au centre des journées d’actions : Les dits « paquets d’asile » des mois récents, dans lesquels sont définis des soi-disant « États d’origine sûrs », ont déjà mené à une croissance massive de reconduites dans des pays de l’Europe de l’Est avec un hiver très froid. Les accords avec quelques états africains et avec l’Afghanistan ouvrent la voie à d’autres potentielles reconduites de masse dans le temps qui vient. Dans les prochains mois, des dizaines de milliers d’Afghans seront reconduits dans un pays qui est détruit d’une guerre continue.

Pourquoi choisir le week-end du 18 mars 2017 ? C’est le premier anniversaire de la signature du traité entre l’Union Européenne et la Turquie qui a pour but la « régulation des courants de réfugiés » et qui contribue de cette manière à la déshumanisation du régime de frontières européen.
Avec l’appel à des actions ce jour-là, nous nous classons dans la protestation à l’échelle européenne contre le régime de frontière inhumain, dans la lutte pour la liberté de mouvement et le droit de venir et de rester. C’est aussi l’hôtel « City Plaza » à Athènes qui a appelé à ces actions. L’hôtel « City Plaza » a été occupé il y a une demi-année et sert depuis à un refuge autogéré de sept étages pour des réfugiés et à un lieu de l’antiracisme et de la solidarité. (Ici, vous trouverez l’appel : http://solidarity2refugees.gr/international-call-city-plaza-18-march-european-day-action/)

Pour coordonner nos actions, pour parler de différentes formes d’actions et d’approches et pour nous inspirer et encourager mutuellement nous invitons à une conférence de travail le 14 janvier 2017 entre 12 et 17 heures à la Musa à Göttingen.


 

دعوة إلى أيام الأنشطة السياسية في كل أنحاء ألمانيا من الاتحاد “قدمتم
أهلا ووطئتم سهلا” في الفترة من ال18 حتى ال23 مارس\ آذار
لأجل الحق بالمجيء وبالذهاب وبالإقامة

يصبح نظام الاعتزال حاليا أقسى وأقسى. ويتقدم ألمانيا مع أكثر وأكثر
ترحيلات – لئن نعلو صوتنا معا!
شاركوا بأيام الأنشطة السياسية في كل أنحاء ألمانيا في الفترة من ال18 حتى
ال23 مارس\ آذار للحق بالإقامة ولحقوق اجتماعية متشابهة لكل شخص. أروا
جماعاتكم للتضامن وكفاحاتكم ورؤاكم من مجتمع به الهجرة ليست تهديداً.

ندعو نحن من الاتحاد “قدمتم أهلا ووطئتم سهلا” إلى هذه أيام الأنشطة
السياسية. نحن اتحاد أو تحالف أو شبكة من جماعات ومنظمات مناهضة للعنصرية
مختلفة ومنظمات الذات من اللاجئين والمهاجرين وجماعات الاستقبال.
اجتمعنا إثر ما يسمى بـ”صيف الهجرة 2015“ لنطور معا صوت المجتمع المدني
فالصوت ممن يستقبل هجرة القادمين الجدد. اتفقنا في مؤتمر في يونيو\حزيران
أن مطابنا الأساسية هي حقوق اجتماعية متشابهة لكل شخص والحق بالمجيء
وبالذهاب وبالإقامة.

نريد الآن ان نصبح نشاطاً ونقدم مطالبنا معاً. على أيام الأنشطة السياسية
أن يُسمِع صوت المجتمع المتضامن هذا. عليها أن تري عدد الأماكن بها هذا أمر
واقع. وكذلك عليها أن تمثل رمزا ضد التحول الحالي إلى اليمين والسلوك
المستبد الذي هو تقليل القيمة ممن أدناه أو ممن له أقل حقوق. سواء آعمال في
الشوارع أو مظاهرات أو حفلات في الحارات أو طاولات مع معلومات فاتركوا
أنفسكم ظاهرين وأروا عملكم وكفاحاتكم ورؤاكم. أبدعوا وخصوصا. ابعث إلينا
فيديوهات وتقريرات وصور من نشاطاتكم. ألفنا فريقا للتنظيم ألأساسي الذي
سينسق الأفعال المختلفة والعلاقات العامة وسيساعدكم في كل المواضيع. لأجل
كل هذا سوف يوجد مؤتمر في مدينة غوتنغن في ال14 يناير\ كانون الثاني.

بفضل الوضع الحالي يتعين التركيز على الحق بالإقامة: القوانين الجديدة التي
أصبحت موافقة عليه في المدة الأخيرة فيها تمت تعيين ما يسمى ببلاد آمنة
قادت إلى رفع ظاهر من الترحيلات إل بلاد شرق أوروبا الباردة جدا بسبب
الشتاء. تهدد الاتفاقات مع بلاد إفريقية وأفغانستان بتحى أكثر ترحيلات. من
المحتمل أن يسفروا بشكل إجباري أفغانيين وأفغانيات بعدد الآلاف إلى بلد
مدمر من الحرب وبه ما زالت اشتباكات حربية.

لماذا نهاية الأسبوع من ال18 مارس\ آذار 2017؟ بهذا التاريخ عيد ميلاد
الاتفاقية بين ألمانية وتركيا التي هي هدفها تخفيف ما يسمى بـ”تيارات
اللاجئين” وبذلك تساهم في وحشية نظام الحدود الأوروبية.
بالدعوة إلى نشاطات في هذه الأيام نقف مع احتجاجات أخرى في كل أنحاء أوروبا
ضد نظام الحدود القاسي والكفاح لأجل حرية التحرك والحق بالمجيء وبالإقامة.
كذلك يدعو الفندق “سيتي بلازا” إلى أفعال. يُعتصم الفندق به قبل نصف سنة
ومنذ ذلك تخدم العمارة سبعة الطوابق كمنزل يُسكن وينظَّم من قبل اللاجئين
ومكان المناهضة للعنصرية التضامن.
)http://solidarity2refugees.gr/international-call-city-plaza-18-march-european-day-action/)

لتنسيق أفعالنا والتبادل عن أنواع الأفعال والأهداف ولكب نلهم بعضنا بعضاً ندعو

إلى مؤتمر في ال14 يناير\ كانون الثاني في غوتنغن. سيتم تصريح الموقع والوقت


Aufruf zu bundesweiten Aktionstagen ‚Welcome2Stay‘ vom 18. bis 23. März 2017

Für das Recht zu kommen, zu gehen und zu bleiben

(Kurzfassung: leicht zu lesen)

Wir sind Aktive im Bündnis Welcome2Stay („Willkommen um zu bleiben“). Wir rufen Euch zu Aktionstagen vom 18. bis 23. März 2017 in ganz Deutschland auf.

Welcome2Stay ist ein Netzwerk aus Gruppen gegen Rassismus, aus Organisationen von Migranten und  Willkommens-Initiativen. Wir fordern: gleiche soziale Rechte für alle und das Recht zu kommen, zu gehen und zu bleiben.

Die Aktionstage sollen die Stimme einer solidarischen Gesellschaft hörbar machen. Sie sollen ein Zeichen gegen den aktuellen Rechtsruck in der Gesellschaft setzen. Im Mittelpunkt soll das Bleiberecht stehen.

Am 18. März 2017 jährt sich der EU-Türkei-Deal. An diesem Tag werden europaweit Proteste stattfinden: gegen das brutale Grenzregime der EU und gegen die massenhaften Abschiebungen. Auch das selbstverwaltete Hotel City Plaza in Athen ruft zu Aktionen auf (hier). Wir reihen uns in diese Aktionen ein.

Macht Euch sichtbar: mit Straßen-Aktionen, Demos, Nachbarschafts-Festen oder Infoständen. Zeigt Eure Arbeit, Kämpfe und Solidarität. Bitte schickt uns Videos, Berichte und Fotos davon. Unser Koordinierungs-Kreis wird Eure Aktionen unterstützen und öffentlich machen.

Wir wollen die Aktionen mit Euch vorbereiten. Kommt zu unserer Arbeitskonferenz am 14. Januar 2017 von 12 bis 17 Uhr in die Musa in Göttingen!

Welcome2Stay Arbeitskonferenz 14.01.2017 in Göttingen

Welcome 2 stay

Englisch, Arabisch, Farsi & Einfaches Deutsch sowie Anreiseskizze unten! Alle Flyer im Download

Liebe Aktive,

Wir möchten Euch, Eure Gruppen, Initiativen oder Organisationen zur nächsten Arbeitskonferenz von welcome2stay am 14. Januar 2017 in  Göttingen einladen.

Die Konferenz dient vor allem der Vorbereitung der Aktionstage, für die wir vom 18. – 23. März aufrufen. Zugleich soll sie auch Ort weiteren Kennenlernens und Vernetzens sein.

Mit den Aktionstagen wollen wir unseren Kernforderungen, das Recht zu kommen, zu gehen und zu bleiben und gleiche soziale Rechte für Alle, hörbaren und sichtbaren Ausdruck verleihen. Sie sollen zeigen, an wie
vielen Orten unser solidarischer Gegenentwurf zur herrschenden Politik der Abschottung und nach wirtschaftlichen Maßstäben regulierter Migration bereits gelebt wird.
Thematischer Schwerpunkt der Aktionstage bildet das Recht auf Bleiben in all seinen Facetten, sowie der Kampf gegen Abschiebungen. Abschiebung zählt zu den radikalsten und brutalsten Verletzungen gleicher sozialer Rechte und des Rechts auf Bewegungsfreiheit und Bleiben. Für die Bundesregierung ist sie jedoch ein probates Mittel ihrer verschärften Asylpolitik und der Eingemeindung des Rechten Rands. Dagegen wollen und müssen wir gemeinsam laut werden. Den Aufruf zu den Aktionstagen findet Ihr hier: www.welcome2stay.org

Die Arbeitskonferenz im Januar wird zum einen ein Ort kreativer Ideensuche sein: welche Aktionsformen sind möglich? Womit haben wir gute Erfahrungen gemacht? Was ließe sich neu ausprobieren?

Zum anderen müssen auf ihr konkrete Schritte der Vorbereitung gegangen werden: soll aus den verschiedensten bundesweiten Aktionen ein Ganzes werden, brauchen wir Verfahren der Bündelung, wie regionale Koordinierungskreise und bundesweite highlights.

Einen Vorschlag zur Tagesordnung findet Ihr im Anhang zusammen mit dieser Einladung.

Die Konferenz findet von 12 – 17 h in der MUSA; Hagenweg 2a, Göttingen statt: (Die Musa findet sich 20 min zu Fuß vom Hbf die Leine flussabwärts oder mit dem Bus Nr. 11, 12, 73 bis Pfalz-Groner-Breite)

Um Anmeldung bitten wir unter mail@welcome2stay.org

Eine Bitte:
Da wir für diese Arbeitskonferenz für Räumlichkeiten und einen DolmetscherInnenpool etwas Geld brauchen, sind wir auf Spenden eurerseits angewiesen.

Dear all,

We would like to invite you, your groups, initiatives or organizations to the next work conference of welcome2stay on the 14th of January, 2017 in Göttingen. The focus of the conference will be the preparation for the upcoming campaign days, for which welcome2stay calls up, between the 18th – 23d of march. At the same time the conference should also be a place to further connect and network.

With the campaign days we want to articulate our core demands, the right to come, to go and to stay and social rights for all.

This shall show at how many places people are already living a solidary counterdraft compared to the prevalent policy of separation and regulated migration based on economic standards. The main focus of the campaign days is on the right to stay in every aspect, as well as the fight against deportations. Deportations belong to the most radical and most violent violations of equal social rights and the right of freedom of movement. However, for the government it is a proven method of their exacerbated asylum policy and the integration of the marginal right wing. Against this we want and we must get loud! You can find the call of action here: www.welcome2stay.org

The working conference in January will be for one a place for a creative search for ideas: what forms of actions are possible? With what did we have good experiences? What could be novel approaches?

For another, concrete steps must be taken: in order to become a whole from various nationwide campaigns, we need bundling procedures, such as regional coordination teams and nationwide highlights.

Below you can find a suggestion for an agenda in the appendix.

The conference takes place from 12 – 17 pm in the MUSA at Hagenweg 2a, Göttingen. (The Musa is located a 20 minutes walk from the main station down the river Line or you can take the Bus Nr. 11, 12, 73 to Pfalz-Groner-Breite.)

To participate, we kindly ask you to register under:
goettingen@welcome2stay.org
Since we need to pay the rooms and interpreters for this working conference, we kindly ask for a donation.

Best regards,
your welcome2stay coordination team


 

دعوة لحضور مؤتمر العمل المنظم من قبل welcome2stayوالذي سيقام في 14 كانون الثاني / يناير 2017، في MUSA, Hagenweg 2a, Göttingen

من أجل حقوق اجتماعية متساوية للجميع و من أجل حق القدوم، الرحيل، و البقاء.

يسرنا دعوتكم و دعوة مجموعاتكم، مبادراتكم، و جمعياتكم لحضور مؤتمر العمل القادم المنظم من قبل welcome2stay في 14 كانون الثاني/يناير 2016 في غوتنغن (Göttingen). الهدف الرئيسي للمؤتمر هو التحضير لأيام الحملة (Aktionstage)التي أطلقنا الدعوة إليها و التي ستقام بين 18 و 23 آذار/مارس 2017. و سيكون هذا اللقاء بنفس الوقت فرصة للتعارف و التشبيك.

نريد في أيام الحملة هذه أن نجعل طلباتنا الرئيسية مسموعة و مرئية فيما يخص حق القدوم، الذهاب، و البقاء والحقوق الاجتماعية المتساوية للجميع. نريد أن تظهر أيام الحملة هذه عدد الأماكن التي ما زال يعيش فيها مقترحنا التضامني البديل لسياسات التفرقة القائمة و للهجرة المنظمة حسب معايير اقتصادية. سيكون أكثر التركيز خلال أيام الحملة على خلق حق البقاء بكل أشكاله و على النضال ضد الترحيل. يعد الترحيل من الاعتداءات الأكثر عنفا و راديكالية على الحقوق الاجتماعية للجميع و لحق حرية الحركة و البقاء، و لكن بالنسبة للحكومة يعد الترحيل وسيلة فعالة لسياسات اللجوء المشددة و ضم اليمين المهمش. نريد و يجب علينا أن نناضل بصوت عال ضد كل ذلك. تجدون الدعوة لأيام الحملة في هذا الرابط: www.welcome2stay.org

سيكون مؤتمر العمل في كانون الثاني / يناير مكانا للبحث عن أفكار خلاقة: ما هي أشكال النشاط الممكنة؟ ما هي تجارب النشاط الجيدة التي قمنا بها؟ ما هي الأساليب الجديدة التي يمكن تجربتها؟

من ناحية أخرى يجب علينا خلال المؤتمر مناقشة خطوات عملية للتحضير: هل يجب أن نوحد الحملات المختلفة في أنحاء الدولة، هل نحتاج إلى إجراءات لتوحيد العمل، كخلق دوائر تنسيقية مناطقية أو التركيز على أهم النشاطات على مستوى الدولة؟

ستجدون في الأسفل مقترح لبرنامج العمل

سيقام المؤتمر بين الساعة 12 و 17 في Hagenweg 2a, Göttingen, MUSA

يرجى التسجيل على العنوان التالي: mail@welcome2stay.org

مع أطيب التحيات، فريق عمل welcome2stay

الوصول إلى مكان إقامة المؤتمر: يقع ال MUSA على بعد 20 دقيقة سيرا على الأقدام من محطة القطار الرئيسية على طول نهر اللاينا(Leine) أو ممكن أخذ الباص رقم 11، 12، أو 73 حتى Pfalz- Groner- Breite

رجاء صغير: بما أننا نحتاج للمال للدفع لمكان إقامة المؤتمر و المترجمين، نعتمد على تبرعاتكم.
