My statement on the federal police's charges against me on racist control - Miloud Lahmar Cherif, The VOICE Refugee ForumSubmitted by voice on Fri, 05/22/2015 - 18:36
My statement on the federal police's charges against me on racist control
If you are a non-white man or a woman living in Germany, you have probably - at least once during your stay here - been asked by the police to show your personal documents without any obvious reasons behind that behavior. This act could take place anywhere in Germany, especially in the trains, train-stations and public spaces. You might have been also wondering why they did exactly choose YOU among tens or hundreds of white people to ask you for your personal documents. Often is the answer my color of skin, my clothing style, my language ..., everything that makes you look different than this nation.

“Can someone explain to me why can't I go inside the School?” asked Angela Davis on the 14th of May, during her meeting with activists in the Werkstatt der Kulturen, in Berlin. “Is it a school or a prison?” To what people from the audience replied: “Yes”. Angela Davis and Gina Dent wanted to visit the refugee occupied school in the Ohlauer Strasse and were denied access by the District authorities.

In 2013 four men chased me out of my home, beause they wanted money from me that I didn‘t have. They threatend to use force if I don‘t meet their demands. One of the men was the police inspector from Novi Sad. They came several times to demand money from me. Many times I gave them €500, sometimes €1000. These were my savings. The last time when they came to blackmail me, I couldn‘t fullfill their demands, beause my money was finished. I was so afraid of those armed men that I had to leave my house.

On the first stop we met with “Lampedusa in Hamburg” and other self-organized refugee activists, anti-fascist and anti-racist groups. More than 100 people attended the discussion.
At first a short movie from the last bus tour was shown, then different initiatives introduced themselves. We presented our experiences from the protests of the last 3 years: the protest march from Würzburg to Berlin, the Oplatz-history and the story of the occupied Gerhard-Hauptmann-Schule.
Seeing the massacre in the Sicilian Channel, we migrants, on the front lines of the daily struggle against the government of mobility and movement, declare that in the war of borders we side with the women and men who seek freedom. Whatever the reason: escaping war, dictatorial regimes, persecution or simply the desire to change life.
