Open Meeting: Break Deportation – Refugee Lager Camps Tour in Thueringen
Discussion with Refugees from Erfurt, Jena and Apolda (Refugees from Waltershausen are invited)
Date: 30.04.2016, Place: Haus auf der Mauer, (Johannis Tor) in Jena, Time: 14:00 Hrs
We are meeting again in Jena, this time to plan the Break Deportation – Refugee Lager Camps Tour and discuss with other refugee community activists in Thueringen. There will be proposals for seminars and workshops on refugee struggles and the rights to asylum, with focus on the inhuman situation the refugees are being subjected to live with, the crimes of deportation, the racist persecution and the isolation culture of Refugee Lager Camps lagers.
For refugees to make their own voices heard in all the refugee lagers, more of us need to speak up and start to organize in the our communities, planning campaigns on issues we care about most.
We are inviting the refugees to connect with themselves to develop a common appeal to empower a refugee agenda for community initiatives in any place in the region.
We are motivated by our quest for a free society, equality, human dignity and freedom of movement.
In these times of proxy wars, mass deportations and social exclusion that is coupled with racial discrimination of refugees and migrants from Europe, a refugee community platform is more important than ever. With the aggressive attack and de facto abolition of asylum laws in Germany and an increased level of violence and right wing mass mobilisations, we want to offer a common opposition and resistance against these crimes by the German politicians and the mainstream who are instigating racist logics to discriminate and advocate for the deportation of thousand of refugees everyday. We also do not forget the danger we find ourselves with pro fascist parties who have advocated for the police to shoot the refugees at sight at the national borders.
The Struggle against colonial Injustice:
The refugees are criminalized at the borders before and after arrival in Europe by laws restricting their movements, isolation with constant deportation threats and racial discrimination. We are organizing to let the world hear from us and to understand that we are not guilty of any crime by seeking refuge and to be a refugee in Europe. We know that the reasons of our escape and flights from our countries are connected to the global exploitation and destruction of the refugee countries through wars and their so- called international treaties of global dominance of the rich nations through a capitalist hegemony.
The refugee crisis in Europe is created by the European proxy wars and colonisation that has been reinforced through the colonial heritage and the divide and conquer policies. These neo-colonial power policies are enforced further to escalate the continuous destruction and abuses of the refugees here and in their home countries.
Our Solidarity; from Self-organization to Self-determination:
Our right to stay is not guaranteed without discrimination and deportation threats. We need the participation and solidarity from refugee activists, old and new, to reclaim our dignity to live a normal life and for freedom of movement.
Refugees can start to write their solidarity appeals, so we can share with other refugee initiatives to join our networks. With your support we can respond powerfully and independently as a community, to challenge and resist the perpetrators of these crimes, the German government, the politicians and the authorities, the racists and their collaborators in general.
The “Break deportation” network is initiated as an open platform of activists to support the refugees' self-organized empowerment and community networking against the crimes of deportation and social exclusion of refugees.
In Solidarity with the Refugee Community
Let us unite to end the deportation and social exclusion in Germany! Coming together to discuss and plan is a strategy to achieve this goal.
Join your local groups for discussions to empower the refugee community movement
Sharing is caring, in solidarity we remain
