Refugee Protest Camp am Oranienplatz
Discussions with refugee activists:
The Struggles of Refugees against the borders here and beyond in Africa
On Sunday, 11. November 2012 at 17:00 hrs in the Refugee Protest Camp am Oranienplatz in Berlin
In the last years one could read many reports about migration control, refugee detention camps in the deserts or deportations. Indeed, since 2006 more than 10 000 refugees became victims of the war against migration at the outer borders of the EU.
Less frequently we hear about the situation of those refugees and migrants who were deported from Europe. „Association of deportees in Mali“(AME) is one of the few grassroots organisations that supports deported refugees practically and politically.
There members take care of deported people who arrive at the airport in Bamako or at the border between Mali and Algeria and who need medical help, a place to stay or legal support. Another focus of AME's activities is publicity, political campaigns and street actions – also in cooperation with regional and European initiatives and groups.
Alassane Dicko from AME is presently in Germany for a tour. On 11th November he will present his organisation and analyse the politics of Europe and Frontex against migrants and migration from Subsaharan Africa and their influences and encroachment in these states.
Rex Osa, activist of the The VOICE Refugee Forum, will talk about methods and practics of the German-European war against migrants and migration from inside Germany: deprivation of basic rights from the beginning of the asylum case,
Systematic social exclusion and isolation not only by the obligatory residential restriction but also by a elaborate system of control of every asylum seeker in the lagers, deportation at any means and any costs. The aim of these politics: „To destroy our lives and to show us that we are not wanted here.“
Rex Osa will also speak about his personal experiences as a refugee and a political activist and show us the only way to counter this systematic destruction: Refugees have to come together, share their experiences, empower themselves and organize themselves – and make a political change.
