THE VOICE REFUGEE FORUM – A Nationwide Campaign and Network:

Activity report and call for support!

Since the announcement of the International Refugee Tribunal during the BREAK ISOLATION SUMMER CAMP in Erfurt (End of August to beginning of September 2012) The VOICE REFUGEE FORUM embarked on the campaign to break the isolation of refugees in the lagers as our primary mission in the community to strengthen our solidarity and the testimonies against the crimes and the abuses of refugees by the German government authorities as well as around Europe.

http://thevoiceforum.org/node/2795

We would like to let you know, that The VOICE REFUGEE FORUM hosted the KARAWANE FESTIVAL in Jena 2010 to empower the campaign network of the BREAK ISOLATION to end the lager regime and to highlight our struggle against colonial injustice in memory of the victims of the border regimes and the European border control agency called FRONTEX. The Tribunal was first proposed from the first conference on Unite against Colonial Injustice in 2009 in Jena.

A nationwide community of Refugees and activists in Germany met together during the BREAK ISOLATION CAMP in Erfurt to organise the structure /logistics and the campaign of the PROTEST MARCH (http://thevoiceforum.org/node/2683) and the Protest Bus from Würzburg to Berlin with the refugee activists of The VOICE REFUGEE FORUM. Also the protest against the Nigerian Embassy Deportation and against FRONTEX was coordinated during the camp. We also decided to set the date of the tribunal and the preparation during the BREAK ISOLATION CAMP in Erfurt. Part of our agenda was also the protest against police brutality in collaboration with the Nigerian Government Embassy during the protest camp in Berlin in october 2012.(http://thevoiceforum.org/node/3007)

Since the beginning of the Tribunal’s preparations, refugee activists from other regions have embraced the BREAK ISOLATION CAMPAIN for Refugee Community Agenda in Thüringen, Niedersachsen, Sachsen-Anhalt, Berlin, Brandenburg, Baden-Württemberg, Hamburg, NRW and Rheinland-Pfalz.

From Thüringen, Baden-Württenberg, Berlin, Niedersachsen and Sachsen-Anhalt we are coordinating our network with refugee communities around Germany, mobilizations and preparation for the tribunal. The refugee liberation bus tour in Baden-Württemberg and Niedersachsen was spontaneously organized to reaffirm our efforts to intensify the daily struggles of The VOICE Refugee Forum and of refugee community activists in Germany. We want to bring into focus the chains of protest in refugee lagers and camps for the empowerment of our solidarity: To break the isolation in the lagers and empower the collective vision, to strengthen the unity of the refugee struggles against colonial injustice of the German state and the authorities. http://thevoiceforum.org/node/3087

We are documenting and informing the refugees about the INTERNATIONAL TRIBUNAL in Berlin which will take place 13th -16th June. The Tribunal will become the first testimony to the historical struggles, protest and strikes of the refugees and will take collective actions against the
repressive crimes committed by the German state and the authorities. http://www.refugeetribunal.org

We are undertaking the next steps to break the chains of isolation in the lagers and the social exclusion and the exploitation of refugees in Germany within the wider network of the BREAK ISOLATION CAMPAIGN and the CARAVAN for the RIGHTS of REFUGEES and MIGRANTS.

The work of The VOICE Refugee network is far from being finished. Donating to the The VOICE Refugee Forum you help to make sure that we can continue uninterruptedly with our demands and our efforts to protect and defend ourselves and to fight for civil rights and human rights in the New Year.

The Break Isolation Campaign and the International Refugee Tribunal platform will be strengthened by the refugee voices of solidarity and resistance in Germany

We are strengthening our nationwide Refugee Network from our regional engagements with activists who are politically self-organized in the refugees' communities, for information sharing and the mechanism for communities to talk to each other and to unite our shared (yes!) voice on issues of common concern. Community volunteers will take coordination of the planning of the network. newsletter from the regional events: activities and reports on Refugee communities will be documented.

We will be using the medium of the Refugee Tribunal platform to protect the interest of the minorities, who may look different racially and politically in this systematic chaos of inequality.

We stay in action and solidarity with the struggles of the refugee communities in lagers and for the exchange of campaign experiences in lagers.

You are strongly invited to join our online media network and photo exchange

The collections of refugee community photos and profiles of refugee political participations and strikes in Germany will be selected at the end of the year for the Break Isolation campaign 2014.

Media activism, translation of the refugee countries' languages, documentation and transportation cost and information events will be helpful for our network.
