Zu reich für den Frieden – Raubbau im Kongo“.
Der Kongo ist ein Land reich an Rohstoffen.
Doch er gehört zu den ärmsten afrikanischen Ländern, denn die Rohstoffe werden entweder von Drittländern ausgebeutet oder so umkämpft, dass die Produktion lahm liegt. Daran beteiligen sich auch deutsche Unternehmen. Der Film zeigt das Problem am Beispiel des Minerals Coltan, das für den Bau von Mobiltelefonen oder Computern äußerst begehrt ist. Sprache: deutsch. Im Fall von Regen im New Yorck, Bethanien, Mariannenplatz 2a.

Freitag, 9. Juni, 20:30 Uhr

Er filmt nach 14 Monaten im Camp auf der marokkanischen Seite vor Mellila (die spanische Enklave auf marokkanischem Festland), vor dem Grenzzaun nach Spanien. Dabei dokumentiert er seinen und den Alltag der Geflüchteten, ihre Selbstorganisation, ihre erfolglosen und die erfolgreiche Erstürmung des unüberwindbar erscheinenden Grenzzauns.

Aktionstage vom 2. Juni bis 13. Juni 2017
Im Zuge der Präsidentschaft über die G20-Staaten lädt Deutschland zur „G20-Afrika-Partnerschafts-Konferenz“ ein. Die sogenannten „Migrations- partnerschaften“ entpuppen sich jedoch als Maßnahmen um Migration zu verhindern, Ziel von privaten Investitionen ist der Profit. Das Wohl der Menschen in Afrika ist damit nicht gemeint. Wir setzen dem unseren Protest, unsere Hoffnung auf ein besseres Leben jenseits der kapitalistischen Zurichtung dieses Planeten und jenseits von Mobilitätskontrolle, sowie unseren Willen, eine solidarische Welt zu realisieren, entgegen!

[Testimony] The symbol of the Refugee Black box: Break the silence, break deportation by Regina Mauricia Kiwanuka

Original source: The voice forum

Break the silence, break deportation by Regina Mauricia

Some say that the Africans must try and forget or accept the calamities that befell the African continent. “Stop singing colonial injustices, stop singing the slave trade slogan,” they say. We all know that these calamities have not only ravaged other lands in other continents, they have succeeded in eliminating populations over populations of various nations in the course of escaping the detritus left behind by the aggressors. Today, a refugee is either burned alive in cell number 5 and forever silenced, or brutally deported and left for dead, or they are dumped here in asylum camps with horrible conditions.

That is the situation at home and abroad, and that is why refugees shall never forget and or try and accept the calamities because the old ones are being replaced with fresh ones. Refugees are ambushed here and also at home with the injustices in our homelands and the ones here in Europe.

Witnessing our brothers and sisters getting kidnapped from the shores of the African continent and dragged to faraway continents to enslave and abuse them in the most inconceivable manner that shall haunt and torment the Africans for generations to come is not something that leaves one´s memory. As if that was not enough, before the poor African peasants
could recover from the first dreadful trauma, the very same people returned in another form of enslavement known as colonialism.

The continent was demarcated to satisfy the colonial masters´ tastes and likings. The demarcation separated the populations under the divide and rule policies of the masters. Before the African people picked up the pieces to try and reorganize their continent, the resilient leaders of the continent that were to guide it back to its tracks, were killed off one by one by the same aggressors. Thomas Sankara (Burkina Faso), Kwame Nkrumah (Ghana), Patrice Lumumba (Congo), Ben. Kiwanuka (Uganda),
Stephen Biko (South Africa), the list is endless.

This confusion resulting from the selfish intrusion that tore the African continent apart during the masters´ conflict among themselves for ownership of various lands and regions, is the same tyrannical operation imposed on the minorities in the name of deportation here in the federal republic of Germany. This collision that impacted the African continent and spread on to other lands in various continents has compounded us together in a form of the minorities of the western hemisphere.

The black box symbolizes the subsequent transparency expected to emerge from all the atrocities imposed on the refugees in Europe and especially here in Germany. The black box must be broken to reveal and to correct all the wrongs subjugated to that fateful Airplane. The Airplane was enormously tampered with and killing many in the process, that reads our homelands. We are the refugees, the minorities that should be compensated within the human rights horizons, compensated for the afflictions that befell us in accordance with the black box´s findings.

The aggressive deportations, the inhuman conditions in the asylum camps, the social exclusions that shall always remind us of the apartheid, the burning of refugees like Oury Jalloh in cell number 5 in Dessau. The brutal killings of refugees within the police brutality in the form of serving and protecting the citizens, the various forms of psychological torment are all patterns of brutal and greedy exploitation.

This interprets that the Berlin conference of 1884 to 1885 that begun the colonial journey is tantamount to the FRONTEX. The FRONTEX is the killer whale to the refugees, just as the horrible nightmare of colonialism affected all refugees and destroyed their countries. FRONTEX is another REPRODUCTION of the same exploitation and infringement, because this time the invasion to our numerous countries whether colonized or not has a different formula.

Silence is not an option, it is a non-existing phrase in our understanding. The ancestors in those days had no voice, they were
attacked and destroyed right before their very eyes, some were even caught unaware. This is another generation that is expected to respect humanity for proper reconstruction and to eradicate the ignorance of the society on the abuses and crimes of the deportation regimes and to unfold the colonial injustices of the system up to this day.

Oury Jalloh, das war Mord. Sa. 07th.Jan.2017

Oury Jalloh Aufruf zur Gedenkdemonstration in Dessau 2017

german bellow

Oury Jalloh, it was murder. Sa. 07th.Jan.2017 – Let the symbol of the lighter represent the many deaths that are undocumented here in Germany

It is that time of the year again. When we stand in remembrance of the awful events that took place on January 7th 2005. Last week in Paris, two white men were prosecuted for forcing a black man off a train on the Metro because of his race. These men were held accountable for their actions and the victim was compensated.

Oury Jalloh was not forced off a train, he was burnt alive, yet the Police Officers who did this were not held accountable and his family was never compensated.
We shall never stop demanding justice for our murdered brother, and we shall keep returning to Dessau each year on the anniversary of his death to voice the atrocity of this barbaric crime against humanity that was committed at the hands of government Civil Servants, the German Police.

We shall groom the younger ones to keep this candle burning against the strong heavy winds of brutality and against all odds. Because Oury Jalloh shall never see his son grow, he shall not contribute to his son´s wellbeing and in the way he would have wanted him turn into a young man.

Oury Jalloh shall never stand against the injustices imposed on him. He can never tell the world which one of the officers lit that lighter on that fateful day of 7th January 2005, because he was silenced. But the more they silence us, the louder we shall become. They shall continue to silence us but we shall never finish.
We are here to remind them, that when we stand here in Dessau for Oury Jalloh, we stand not only against all atrocities inflicted upon the black population, but we stand against the violations that are inflicted on all minorities in the German system. We shall never waver, we shall keep the voice loud until justice is served truthfully, rightfully and fairly to all.

Let the symbol of the lighter represent the many deaths that are undocumented here in Germany. Let Oury Jalloh´s murderous events in cell number five be the symbol of the African struggles in the neo colonial atrocities against the black man. Oury Jalloh, das war Mord.

From your comrades in Oldenburg in Niedersachsen.

Oury Jalloh, das war Mord. Samstag, 7. Januar 2017 – Lasst das Symbol des Feuerzeugs die vielen undokumentierten Tode hier in Deutschland repräsentieren

„Lasst das Symbol des Feuerzeugs die vielen undokumentierten Tode hier in Deutschland repräsentieren. Lasst uns die mörderischen Ereignisse um Oury Jalloh in Zelle Nr. fünf das Symbol für die afrikanischen Kämpfe in den neokolonialen Grausamkeiten gegen den Schwarzen Menschen werden.“

Es ist wieder diese Zeit des Jahres, in der wir uns an die schrecklichen Ereignisse, die am 7. Januar 2005 stattgefunden haben, erinnern.

Letzte Woche wurden in Paris zwei weiße Männer angeklagt, weil sie aus rassistischen Gründen einen Schwarzen Mann gezwungen haben, einen U-Bahn-Zug zu verlassen. Diese Menschen sind für ihre Tat zur Verantwortung gezwungen worden und das Opfer wurde entschädigt.

Oury Jalloh wurde nicht etwa aus einem Zug gejagt; er wurde bei lebendigem Leib verbrannt, und dennoch wurden die Polizeibeamten, die das taten, dafür nicht zur Verantwortung gezogen und seine Familie ist bis heute nicht entschädigt worden.

Wir werden niemals aufhören, für unseren ermordeten Bruder Gerechtigkeit einzufordern, und wir werden weiterhin jedes Jahr nach Dessau zurückkehren zum Jahrestag seines Todes, um die Grausamkeit dieses barbarischen Verbrechens gegen die Menschlichkeit zu verkünden, das durch die Staatsbeamten, die deutsche Polizei, verübt worden ist.

Wir werden die Jüngeren darauf vorbereiten, damit diese Kerze am Brennen gehalten wird gegen die starken und heftigen Winde der Brutalität und allen Widrigkeiten zum Trotz. Weil Oury Jalloh niemals seinen Sohn aufwachsen sehen wird, nicht zu seinem Wohlergehen beitragen kann und nicht nach seinem Willen darauf Einfluss nehmen kann, wie er sich zu einem jungen Mann entwickelt.

Oury Jalloh wird sich niemals gegen die Ungerechtigkeiten, die ihm auferlegt wurden, wehren können. Er kann der Welt niemals mitteilen, welcher der Beamten das Feuerzeug entzündet hat an diesem verhängnisvollen 7. Januar 2005, denn er wurde zum Schweigen gebracht. Doch je mehr sie uns zum Schweigen bringen wollen, desto lauter werden wir werden. Sie werden uns weiterhin zum Schweigen bringen wollen, aber wir werden nie aufhören.

Wir sind hier, um sie daran zuerinnern, dass wir, wenn wir hier in Dessau für Oury Jalloh stehen, wir nicht nur gegen alle Grausamkeiten, die der Schwarzen Bevölkerung auferlegt werden, stehen, sondern wir stehen für alle Verletzungen, die allen Minderheiten im deutschen System angetan werden. Wir werden niemals schwanken, wir werden unsere Stimme laut halten, bis wahrhaftig, rechtmäßig und gerecht Gerechtigkeit allen gegenüber geübt wird.

Lasst das Symbol des Feuerzeugs die vielen undokumentierten Tode hier in Deutschland repräsentieren. Lasst uns die mörderischen Ereignisse um Oury Jalloh in Zelle Nr. fünf das Symbol für die afrikanischen Kämpfe in den neokolonialen Grausamkeiten gegen den Schwarzen Menschen werden. Oury Jalloh, das war Mord.

3 reasons why the Syrian people left and boycott The “Civil March for Allepo”?

Some days ago the Civil March for Aleppo has started from Berlin. Aiming to walk the whole way through Aleppo, 3000km. They received very big media attention , even though it is clear that this is a impossible march. The behaviour of the organizers depict clearly they come from a social enterpreuner circle, in which they can manage to create a big social cause without a clear political understanding.

One day after starting the March the conflict start to escalate, which is very normal for such a big action. The Syrian people who joined the march want to walk with the Syrian revolution flag, but the organizers forbid any flag except the white flag. In the night in the big plenum the syrian people manage to open up the issue and make it into a discussion, trying to establish a minimum democracy in the organization. After hours of discussion, 97 people out of 100 say that they are ok with having the flag carried in the march, and they decide to do it.

The next day the organizers come to the syrian people and tell them that they changed their opinion over night and they are not allowed to carry the flag. And that they asked the police to arrest any body who carries any flag.

 

1- The organizers refuse to mention and analyse who is actually killing the people

The syrian people demand to make a difference between the Assad Regime and the revolutionaries, but this is not accepted by the organizers.

This flag is the flag of the Syrian revolution against dictator Bashar al-Assad's regime.Killed and displaced and…

2- Colonial behaviour of the organizers

They try to make a power relation and decide over the real people who were affected by the situation. In the organization of the March there were not even one Syrian person involved and later on after they heard about it and tried to join, They always kept outside of the decision circle. The only thing they were allowed to do was to follow the white activists and this is not acceptable by them.

#boycott_the_uncivil_march_for_aleppo #civilmarchforaleppoWhy i withdraw my support for the march?Because it is so…

Posted by Mohammad Abu Hajar on Dienstag, 27. Dezember 2016

 

3- The organizers simply lie

They always claim that in their manifesto they clearly state that they just allow white flags in the march, and this way they depict the syrian participants and law breakers. but that’s a plain lie. In their manifesto the only place they talk about flags, they write:

We’re carrying these white flags to let the whole world know our message: Enough is enough. This war has to stop!

So they never talk about any other kind of flag.

Deportation is Criminal: Germany’s corrupted identification practice to execute it’s culture of deportation

Refugees Initiative Schwäbisch Gmünd

protest against the Nigerian Embassy Collaboration

Germany has always Capitalised on the stooge cooperation of Refugee Countries government to execute its racist culture to deport and enforce its massive exclusion policies.

Rise up and Join us in our struggle to fight against the German Colonial Deportation System.

One of such corrupt criminal practices is the ongoing deportation hearing at the Ordnungsamt – Olpe 1 in Dortmund (http://thevoiceforum.org/node/4113) that has continued to persist for decades now and all over Germany unabated.

In 2008, The VOICE Refugee Forum initiated a Nationwide campaign in Germany and Beyond to monitor and protest against the Nigerian Embassy Collaboration: “Another face of Colonialism

The Nigerian Embassy delegates will be identifying Black Africans Asylum seekers and issue deportation documents to facilitate their deportation to Nigeria.

There has been confirmed cases of Asylum seekers like Joseph Doe (Gambian) and Santiago Camara (Sierra Leone) who were identified and issued deportation document that had facilitated their deportation to Nigeria. Video: https://vimeo.com/110095851

The same Nigerian Embassy Officer whose criteria of identifying the Asylum seekers by Physical appearance and Accent is expected to continue this dubious practice in Dortmund this week.

These hearings are organised in cooperation with Federal Police, Alien Offices and many other departments to make up the deportation Cartel.

THE COLLABORATION BY IDENTIFYING THEM AS NIGERIANS, FACILITATE THE RACIST CULTURE TO DEPORT AS MANY AFRICANS AS POSSIBLE TO SITUATION OF TORTURE, IMPRISONMENT, MISERY AND EVEN DEATH.

Nigeria is not a secured Country just like Germany proves to be unsecured for persons needing Protection.

The Camouflaged regime in Nigeria today has proven with its Anti-corruption goal to promote its strategy for selective persecution.

The Increasing Havoc of Boko Haram has continued to cause massive deaths and displacement of Civilians while Mr President is propagating false defeat to the international community.

The 2015 Massacre of Shiite Muslims and the continuous repression of  people calling for a Sovereign State of Biafra are just but a few of countless violence masterminded by the Nigerian State and in turn promoting extra judicial Killings, imprisonment and massive displacement of persons since the colonial era in Nigeria.

Ongoing development expresses the Buhari Regime readiness to justify violent use of Ammunition on unarmed protesters as the case may be.

State persecution of Homosexuals and the LGBT`s Gay community in Nigeria continue to face massive Stigma and Criminalization which contains penalties of up to 14 years imprisonment through a Bill passed into force since 2014.

The role of Imperialist Countries like Germany cannot be undermined in the whole development of displacement, Persecution, Poverty that is connected with the Continuous exploitation of our Countries.

We remember the collaboration of the EU in the gruesome murder of our brave brothers, Sisters, friends and comrades like Ken Saro Wiwa and many others who stood to de-mask the crimes of Multinationals in Niger Delta, the Ogoni and Odi Massacre amongst many atrocities committed by the Nigerian government in service to the colonial Monsters.

The wasteful Tour of Nigerian and African leaders seeking financial aids and begging for help from the Slave trade drivers means more to the colonisation process contributed to further exploitation of Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

We are Refugees today because Germany and its imperialist Clique has continued to plunder our resources, promoted corruption and exploitation through proxy wars, continuous enslavement of our government and embezzlement through so-called development aids alongside the several criminal policies directed at maintaining their geopolitical control of Africa. All these are the attributes to their source of funding the expansion of prisons and the deportation of Africans from Europe.

Between Two Fires: A Migrant’s Fight for a Place in Germany

picture of a refugee protest demonstration in Berlin by Tobias Zielony
In dictatorships, where a prideful life is nonexistent and the nation’s wealth is owned and controlled by the ruler’s clique, young people suffer a suffocating atmosphere of systematic oppression for merely criticizing the regime in power. Faced with joblessness and lack of freedom of expression, some suppressed youths will seek legal and illegal emigration allured by the foreign media’s empty slogans of justice and freedom. I am writing these words out of a personal experience, being an illegal Sudanese immigrant in Europe. I learned the hard way that illegal immigration is not the answer, that is if the Mediterranean Sea does not swallow you first.
