Statement on police brutality in the reception center in Donauwörth on 14th of March

Deutsch unten —–

On Wednesday, 14th of March, police forces showed extreme brutality towards the inhabitants of the reception center and arrested at least 29 persons. This happened after a legitimate protest against an attempted deportation. The location of those who were arrested is still unclear. There was no violence against humans on the side of the refugees. The charges of “breach of peace” and “grievous bodily harm” are utterly unfounded and constructed and will need independent evidence.

Refugees and human rights organisations have been criticising the inhuman living conditions in the reception centre (EA) in Donauwörth for months. The minister of the interior, Herrmann, used the false accusations against refugees spread by police as a pretext to personally travel to Donauwörth on Friday to continue his electoral campaign with right wing demands such as more police and more deportations.

The refugees in the EA of Donauwörth have released a statement (see below), in which they reject the unfounded accusations against them, demand the release of the prisoners, the recognition of their asylum applications, working permits and protection from the police.

Antiracist innitiatives and human rights organisations are stating their solidarity with those involved and with their demands. In addition to this, these groups demand the dismissal of the social workers who have violated their mandate towards the refugees in the EA.

We, the refugees of Donauwörth, demand that the unfounded claims, that we used violence against the police and that we threw furniture out of the windows, are withdrawn immediately. The police came to deport our colleague and began knocking at the doors to all our rooms between 3 and 4 in the morning, as they could not find him in his own room. Around 100 people of different nationalities woke up and demanded with their voices to immediately stop the deportation. At around 2 pm more than 50 police vans and over 200 special police unit officers entered the camp armoured with pistols, tear gas, batons, knives, ropes, rifles, dogs and pepper spray. They locked us in our rooms and barred the main entrance. Everywhere in the house they blocked the passages while taking our personal details and searching our rooms. They were seeking at least 29 people with a list of names, which had been obtained that morning with the help of the social workers and security personell. They threw tear gas canisters into the camp and sprayed pepper spray into some rooms as well as into our eyes. Some people fainted, others jumped out of the windows to save themselves. Window panes had to be broken to allow fresh air to enter the rooms, as all the windows in the EA are locked.

The demands of our previous protests have been, and remain, the recognition of our asylum applications, the closing of the transit camps of transfer to private appartments and the right to participation. Furthermore we demand the release of the prisoners.

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.

Press Statement of the Associaton of Bridging Peoples to Trump’s Travel Ban 1.2.2017

Protest against Trump's immigration ban at JFK AirportTrump’s order is a big danger for refugees as well as for human rights.  We are genuinely horrified and worried on the first 10 days of Government of the new US president. We condem Trump’s executive order.

The USA is mainly responsible from the chaos in the Middle East, in the Africa and in the Asia with military, political and economic interventions. Thus, the USA is mainly responsible from the refugee/immigrant crisis in the world.

As we all know migration is an unstoppable and inevitable natural phoneme. Human beings have always migrated and therefore this is not new. History has shown us that migration, which has lead to multicultural societies all over the world like USA. It is possible to have numerous cultures living side by side. Immigration is politically and socially controllable but the wars is turning immigration into a tragedy.

Since April 2011 approximately 7 million Syrians were forced to migrate as the civil war was intensified with the intervention of several states including the USA. The Syrian uprising has followed a number of other uprisings in the Arab world. We witnessed as the uprising turned into a proxy war with sectarian overtones. The People of Syria was not defeated in Syria and eventually forced into massive migration, instead, the People of Syria was defeated in Washington, Paris, Riyad, Ankara, Doha, Moscow etc; in the competitive nature of the power struggle in an increasingly volatile international system. This system is marked with an uncheckered drive to grab markets, establish zones of influence, plunder energy and natural resources, control energy routes, and maintain the “realisation-evaluation” cycle in military industry.

Who are these migrants? They are those who are stateless; those who lost their houses, jobs, and does not have a future in their homelands; those who are marginalized under the economic, political and cultural pressures enforced by neoliberal policies and have to leave their homes. 63.5 million people who have been displaced because of war, poverty, climate change, neoliberal policies, mass displacements, and cheap labor work transfers (slave trade) are defacto refugees who do not have a refugee status.

Yet the UN and EU continue in their failures to take any action to provide a life in dignity for these people. Just the opposite: Frontex (EU border security forces) and NATO ships forced refugees to the death boats or going back to their countries to die in the ongoing wars. This is a secret war by the richest of the world against the poorest of the world!

But migrants are fighting back! They demolished the borders, Lisbon Agreement and Schengen. And the most importantally of the movement is social solidarity networks. Despite Europe’s migrant policy, people from Greece to Germany supported and aided refugees to cross the borders in a serious and unexpected way. This solidarity movement is another reason for the fear of the coming of the refugees inside the EU. Now this solidarity is happening in the USA. Peoples of USA are running to air-ports to tell to migrants wellcome and to tell to Trump no!

The Anti-migrant wave in Europe and in the USA is not a new phenomenon. Perceiving refugees as a threat to security by criminalising them, militarisation of the borders, transferring refugees to subcontractor are the anti-migration policies in Europe and in the USA that have been lasting for years. This is what has been going on with Libya and Pakistan for years.

Solidarity of the people and the public friendship will be an obstacle towards the anti-migrant atmosphere in Europe and in the USA which/that causes fascist organisations to grow.

We must  defend absolute and unconditional hospitality for immigrants and refugees.

We must express our desire to establish a relationship with migrants, refugees, oprressed and  marginalised beyond and above the legalistic and institutional view of the world. By doing so, we can open a path for struggle against all oppression and exploitation.

We must say “welcome” to all migrants and refugees without ifs and buts.

We must welcome migrants and refugees unconditionally!

The ‘right to rights’ of these people who striped off from all basic rights is a right to exist without being pushed around or absorbed by dominant politics and powers. It is in fact a right to self determination and political existence.

No government including the USA can be allowed to strip off the refugees from their political rights and take away their existence as their own political subjects.

We must believe that being a political subject begins with having the right to self determination of ones own life.

We were all foreigners at some stage, and in future we could be foreigners in another country. That we were born on this land does not make us the owners. All land is for all people. Hence, real hospitality is about internationalism.

We must reject the definition of citizenship as being part of national identity.  We also must reject the ethnic and religious totalitarianism of nation states. Instead we must see nations as a political form that intends to live together in a diverse society and that welcomes the newcomers. “Civilization” began with settlement. By taking away someone’s right to settle down you take away their humanity. A nation is a collective of people settled together. Newcomers are not a danger or threat to the nation but an enrichment.

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

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.

In honor of Oury Jalloh / Oury Jalloh zu Ehren gewidmet / l’honneur de Oury Jalloh – Refugee Struggle for Freedom

(french, german bellow)

In honor of Oury Jalloh

This day is specially dedicated in honor of Oury Jalloh, this young martyr who, in the prime of his life, perished in the hands of judiciary, which was supposed to guarantee him security. He perished because he had the misfortune to be born black. He had the misfortune to leave his home country without worrying about the dangers of the other side. But to tell the truth, how many Oury Jallohs are there in the world? – Too many, everywhere.

Let’s look at the biggest democratic state in the world, the USA. Every day we hear: Afro-American killed by the police. Afro-American slaughtered by the police. And who knows how many Oury Jallohs are among us here and who of us will be the next victim? Never think we have peace while we sleep. For the ones who do nothing to improve their situation have no right to lament their fate. Do not be deceived. It is only through struggle, that we can achieve something. Who will do it in our place if not ourselves? No one, no NGO, no government. Not even our own heads of state, as they are too busy raising money before the end of their term, or ways to stay longer in power.

Never give up, never stop fighting, never sleep. For Oury Jalloh, for all unknown victims of racist aggression and judiciary system.

L’honneur de Oury Jalloh

Ce jour est spécialement consacré en l’honneur de Oury Jalloh, ce jeune martyr au fleur de l’age qui a péri aux mains de la justice, qui devait lui apporter la securité. Il a péri parce’que il a eu le malheur d’être né noir. Il a eu le malheur de quitter son pays natale sans se soucier des dangers de l’autre côté. Mais à vrais dire, combien de Oury Jalloh y’a t’il dans le monde? – C’est trop, partout.

Regardez dans la democratie la plus grande au monde, les USA. Chaque jour l’on entends: Afroamèricain(e) tué par la police. Afroamèrican(e) abbatu par la police. Et qui sais combien de Oury Jallohs est parmis nous ici et qui de nous sera la prochain victime? Ne croyons jamais avoir la paix en dormant, car celui qui ne fait rien pour améliorer sa situation n’a pas le droit de se lamenter sur son sort. Ne nous trompons pas. Il n’y a que par le combat. que nous pouvons aboutir à quelque chose. Qui le fera à notre place si ce n’est nous même? Personne, ni ONG, ni gouvernement. Même pas nos propres chefs d’états car ils sont trop occupés à amasser de l’argent avant leurs départs ou des moyens de rester plus longtemps aux pouvoirs.

Ne baissons jamais la main, ne jamais cesser de combattre, ne dormez jamais. Pour Oury Jalloh, pour toutes ces victimes que l’on ne peut identifier, les victimes d’ agression raciste et de la justice.

Oury Jalloh zu Ehren gewidmet

Dieser Tag ist Oury Jalloh zu Ehren gewidmet, dem jungen Märtyrer, der in der Blüte seines Lebens unter den Händen der Justiz zu Grunde gegangen ist, deren Aufgabe es eigentlich wäre, für seine Sicherheit zu sorgen. Er ist umgekommen, weil er das Pech hatte, schwarz geboren zu sein. Er hatte das Pech, sein Heimatland verlassen zu haben, ohne die Gefahren der anderen Seite erkannt zu haben. Aber um die Wahrheit zu sagen, wie viele Oury Jallohs gibt es auf dieser Welt? – Zu viele, überall.

Schaut Euch den größten demokratischen Staat dieser Welt an, die USA. Jeden Tag hören wir: Afroamerikaner_in, ermordet von der Polizei. Afroamerikaner_in, abgeschlachtet von der Polizei. Und wer weiß wie viele Oury Jallohs es unter uns hier gibt und wer von uns das nächste Opfer sein könnte? Lasst uns niemals glauben, wir können uns nun in dem Frieden ausruhen, denn wer nichts tut, um ihre_seine Situation zu verbessern, hat nicht das Recht, sich über ihr_sein Schicksal zu beklagen. Lasst uns nicht uns selbst täuschen. Nur durch den Kampf können wir etwas erreichen. Wer soll diesen Kampf für uns führen, wenn nicht wir selbst? Niemand, keine NGO, keine Regierung. Selbst unsere Staatschefs nicht, denn sie sind zu sehr damit beschäftigt, Geld anzuhäufen, bevor ihre Amtszeit vorbei ist und Wege zu finden, länger an der Macht zu bleiben.

Lasst uns niemals aufgeben, lasst uns niemals den Kampf aufhören, lasst uns niemals schlafen. Für Oury Jalloh. Für alle namenlosen Opfer von rassistischer Aggression und der Justiz.

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.
