27th to 29th January 2017 in Jena, Thuringen

“Our main focus of discussion will be breaking the deportation chain from within; with discussions on strategies of Break Deportation Acts: Our historical backgrounds and past political struggles against deportation and social exclusion will be the guide to our continued engagement for justice and human dignity.”

The VOICE Refugee Forum, Activists of the Refugee-Migrant Community Network together with Anti deportation activists will be presenting and discussing the very first agenda and plan of the project event: ” Refugee Black Box – The irrepressible voice and power of the afflicted” in Jena, over the weekend of the 27th to the 29th.

This is a Prepar-Tainment weekend meeting for the political project event:
“Refugee Black Box – The irrepressible voice and power of the afflicted”

What do we want to talk about?

Our main focus of discussion will be breaking the deportation chain from within; with discussions on strategies of Break Deportation Acts: Our historical backgrounds and past political struggles against deportation and social exclusion will be the guide to our continued engagement for justice and human dignity.

We want to discuss how we, the refugee-migrant community activists in Germany overcome the different faces of injustice in Europe. We will speak about our experiences, the struggles and campaigns of the refugee community against the deportation cultures of the German and European racist nationalism, against social exclusion in Germany. About how we fight against the abuse and violation of our rights, the corruption of the deportation system, societal ignorance including German elites and politicians vis-à-vis human dignity and freedom of movement.

Prepar-Tainment Agenda

Friday and Saturday (27th and 28th):

There will be Workshops and Podium discussions. During discussions the Photo Exhibition of the Refugee Community Strike protest “We will Rise” by the Oplatz Refugee Movement will be part of our political arena with Street theatre, Rallies and Demonstration. In the evenings after discussions and workshops, there will be Solidarity Music and Concerts.

Saturday evening:

Cultural Contributions and Solidarity Live Concerts in Café Wagner, Jena. Also on the list are:

– Schwabinggrad Ballett together with the performance group Arrivati who call themselves „autonomous collective of refugees and People of Colour“, from Hamburg.

– System D „a crossing borders musical experience, challenging the oppression, political situation, borders control: Reggae is not dead.“ (Leipzig)

Sunday: Continuation of the discussions and perspectives on the way forward

“Refugee Black Box – The irrepressible voice and power of the afflicted” is a political experiment and a process to re-create our alternative space and critical enlightenment, through the Refugee Political Solidarity X-Ray on the decades of refugee struggles against the centuries of colonial injustice of deportation.

The concept is a process of inspirations from struggles like: The Caravan Internation Refugee Congress Jena – “Unite against Deportation and Social Exclusion” – the beginning of the Residenzpflicht campaign in 2000, Oury Jalloh’s death in Police Cell No 5 in Dessau and the ensuing court trial in 2008, the Caravan Festival on Colonial Injustice in Jena 2010, Break Isolation Refugee Camp in Erfurt with the preparation of the Refugee Protest March from Würzburg to Berlin in 2012 and the Refugee International Tribunal in Berlin in 2013, which were organized by The VOICE Refugee Forum and The Caravan for the Rights of Refugees and Migrants. (See links below) It is in the spirit of continuity of The VOICE Refugee Forum struggles since 1994 from the Mühlhausen refugee camp.
Refugee Black Box actions are planned to expose the ignorance of the society on the abuses and crimes of deportation regimes and to make the colonial injustices of the system visible.

Like Marcus Garvey said, “Never forget that intelligence rules the world and ignorance carries the burden. Therefore, remove yourself as far as possible from ignorance and seek as far as possible to be intelligent”.

Like in a tribunal, it is about charging the system and giving a platform to the afflicted to bring their own charges to public awareness. In addition, it has elements of a festival with its cultural space. The idea parodies the black boxes of aircrafts. It contains sensitive information that are vital to its functionality. The afflicted can submit their charges and these would form the basis of the next protest actions against the pervasive colonial injustice.

Join us in the 2017 grassroots struggles of the refugees community movement, to make “Refugee Black Box – The irrepressible voice and power of the afflicted” a concrete and empowering political solidarity weapon.

“By coming together, we will continue to learn from each other, develop our strength by continued self-empowerment to break the deportation culture and to overcome the different faces of injustice in Europe. Most of us are victims of war. Some of us lost our families; many of us are separated from their children, wives and husbands, while countless number of us died on the journey to Europe under the watchful eyes of FRONTEX. As a result, many of us remain traumatised today. Yet, instead of being given the necessary therapeutic and other support, we are discriminated against, subjected to brutal and greedy exploitation and exclusion, various forms of psychological torture and expected to gratefully accept our unspoken label of subhuman or „Untermensch“ in the name of refugees because we don‘t have bombs raining on us.” – Review on Break Deportation Culture – Deportation is criminal and we fight to stop it! http://thevoiceforum.org/node/4210

Deportation and its corruption of legal systems and regimes are criminal. Stop the deportation system! Fight racist nationalism!

Lets shake things up! – Bring down the deportation regimes! Stop the deportations!!!

Please make donations, engage and work with us for an independent refugee community and Join us for the 2017 grass root struggles of the refugees communities on our movement to make “The Refugee Black Box ” a concrete political solidarity weapon.

The events will be financed by public donation and solidarity contribution only.
