STOP THE TERROR OF DEPORTATIONS – BREAK THE ISOLATION!!

We Nigerians, refugees from Gotha, together with activists from The VOICE Refugee Forum are calling for your solidarity. We live here in the refugee lager in Gotha and are witnessing how our brothers and sisters are being deported at nighttime.

Most of us have a long journey to escape the horror that we have experienced. On our way, we survived the desert and the Mediterranean sea. Some of us survived as well the streets of Italy, where we looked for a small shelter to protect ourselves and children from the rain and cold winds. Now, we do not sleep because every night the police might come and deport us back to Nigeria or any other country. Our lives are dominated by the permanent fear that the German government is putting on us and our children.

This fear has increased since last year we heard that the Nigerian and German governments are talking to deport up to 30.000 Nigerian brothers and sisters from Germany. They are selling and pushing us without asking how and where we would like to live. They ignore our wishes to live a life in peace, security and dignity. We have not fled to here to live in an isolation camp in Thuringia. We want to shape our future and that of our children.

We cannot accept how we are pushed from one to another country and how
our lives are endangered. We cannot accept how unsafe countries and
societies are labeled safe and refugees are sent back there, as it is done for refugees from Afghanistan.

We call for a parade and demonstration with Refugee Black Box Installation and Performance here in Gotha. With our presence we show what the bureaucrats in both, the German and Nigerian, governments are doing: They destroy our lives. Since 2011 both governments have strengthened their cooperation. One of the main areas is migration. On the one side the people are biometrically captured by technology provided by Germany and on the other side Nigerian refugees are deported from Germany. The award for every deported refugee is economical contracts and money that is fed to a corrupt regime.
We call for other refugees to solidarize and build a common struggle against the inhuman attacks on us. The new laws are further cutting the minimum rights we had. We have no other opportunity than to stand up for our dignity and those of our children.

We ask all other refugees to build their own Refugee Black Boxes and installations to show the communities’ networks of solidarity. Let us know how you see the deportations and the isolation that you are forced to live in.

We call on all progressive activists, friends and sympathizers, refugees and non-refugees to join us in launching our campaign against deportation of Nigerians and to protest against the deportations and against isolation of refugees.

Bring your Refugee Black Box!

Send your solidarity message to us. If you are not able to come to make your own Black Box you can send a photo of your Refugee Black Box to the Facebook page of the Refugee Black Box:

https://www.facebook.com/RefugeeBlackBox or check your messenger for

If you cannot come you can give a small or big donation for our fellow sisters and brothers that want to come to Gotha from Erfurt, Jena or elsewhere but cannot afford the ticket due to the limited money they have as refugees. Donations, one Euro or more, can be transferred to the account of THE VOICE Refugee Forum given below.

RBB Press: Refugee Black Box is a political agenda.

Power to the people in the revolutionary form and not just as a slogan. The idea must be extended to all people of the world in a practical way. Slow but powerful and strong.

Solidarity is not only our weapon, but it is our resisted oppressed bodies.
Our presence is our resistance and our resistance is our solidarity.

The Refugee Black Box activists with African Community of Guineans in Jena, The Afghanistan refugee community and MOVE in Erfurt with the Refugee Cafe in Goettingen will be demonstrating with us.

Sea-Watch gewinnt Berufung: Der niederländische Staat darf bis Ende 2019 keine neuen Sicherheitsanforderungen anwenden

Heute hat ein Richter in Den Haag über die von Sea-Watch eingereichte Berufung entschieden. Das Urteil des Gerichtshofs erkennt an, dass die negativen Folgen, die sich aus dem Wegfall einer Übergangsfrist für die strengeren Sicherheitsvorschriften auf dem Schiff von Sea-Watch ergeben, nämlich dass Menschen aufgrund begrenzter Rettungskapazitäten im Mittelmeer ertrinken können, den Zweck der neuen…

Airborne Crew meldet zahlreiche Boote in Seenot

Nachdem unsere Kapitänin Carola Rackete von den Staatsanwälten auf Sizilien vergangene Woche ein zweites Mal angehört wurde – diesmal rund vier Stunden – bleibt die Sea-Watch 3, für uns in keiner Weise nachvollziehbar, weiter beschlagnahmt. Die aktuelle Crew macht aus der Not eine Tugend und nutzt die Liegezeit in Licata für notwendige Entrostungs- und Lackierarbeiten.…

PM: “Brücken Bauen”-Festival: Ein Protestcamp von geflüchteten Frauen* am Oranienplatz

Wir laden Sie herzlich ein zu unserer Pressekonferenz anlässlich des
"Brücken Bauen"-Festivals am 25.07.2019 um 10:30 im Aquarium, Skalitzer
Straße 6 10999 Berlin

von Women in Exile & Friends

Nach Schwierigkeiten, eine Genehmigung für unser Protestcamp zu bekommen, das in Form eines Festivals vom 26.-28.07. auf dem Oranienplatz stattfinden wird, haben uns die Kreuzberger Behörden endlich die Erlaubnis erteilt. Es ist bedauernswert, dass wir von einer Kreuzberger Politiker*in der Grünen nicht unterstützt wurden, obwohl die Polizei und schon die Genehmigung für eine Kundgebung erteilt hatte. Dass wir nun die Erlaubnis haben, ist dem Einsatz von Women in Exile and Friends, Gruppen, einzelnen Unterstützer*innen und einigen Nachbar*innen zu verdanken.

Diese Mühen waren keine Überraschung in Anbetracht der neuen Asylgesetze, die kürzlich veranschiedet wurden. Der Oranienplatz ist seit 2012 ein Symbol des Widerstandes, als die Flüchtlingsbewegung durch ganz Deutschland marschierte; wir liefen damals von Potsdam bis zum Oranienplatz mir. Wir liefen zusammen, waren Teil der Demonstrationen, Treffen und Workshops. Zu jener Zeit war die feministische Perspektive nicht sehr präsent, aber jetzt kommen wir zurück, um die Situation von geflüchteten Frauen* und ihren Kämpfen sichtbar zu machen.

Seit 2014, as wir eine achtwüchige Floßtour unter dem Titel “Flüchtlingsfrauen werden laut!”machten, um auf die Lebensbedingungen von geflüchteten Frauen aufmerksam zu machen, die sexuelle Gewalt und Belästigung, die wie in den isolierten Heimen erleben. Seitdem machen wir jährlich gemeinsam mit unseren Netzwerken von Flüchtlingsfrauen in ganz Deutschland eine bundesweite Aktion. Der Floßtour folgten eine Bustour und die “Breaking Borders”-Konferenz 2017, weiter ging es mit einer internationalen Bustour 2018, die mit einem Pressetribunal endete, in dem Seehofers Abschiebepolitik sowie die Ankerzentren verurteilt wurden und bei dem die Verbindung gezogen wurde zwischen Fluchtursachen, Klimawandel und anderen menschengemachten Katastrophen, de vor allem von den “entwickelten” Ländern ausgehen.

Unser Thema für 2019, “Brücken Bauen” ist der Versuch, auf andere feministische Organisationen und die Community zuzugehen. Wir sind uns der Gräben zwischen Illegalisierten, Flüchtlingen, Migrant*innen und deutschen Staatsbürger*innen bewusst. Gräben, die in Diskriminierung, Rassismus, Sexismus, Privilegien und Vorurteilen in der Gesellschaft führen. Unsere Erfahrung hat uns gezeigt, dass es sehr wenig Vertrauen gibt zwischen feministischen Organisationen und geflüchteten Frauen*. Obwohl die meisten unserer Kämpfe verbunden sind, ist es sehr schwer, echte Solidarität zu erleben. Das liegt zum einen am vorgefertigten Konzept über “Flüchtllinge” in der Zivilgesellschaft, das eine vorurteilsbeladene Kategorisierung darstellt. Zum anderen finden es viele geflüchtete Frauen* schwierig, sich an europäische feministische Ideologien zu gewöhnen. Das mag an kulturellen Unterschieden liegen oder daran, dass sie sich in den Konzepten nicht repräsentiert fühlen. Daher werden wir diese Unterschiede in Workshops und kulturellen Performances diskutieren und somit zum Aufbau eines inklusiven und intersektionalen Feminismus beitragen. Da Kinder ein wichtiger Teil unserer Gruppe sind, wird es für sie auch ein abwechslungsreiches Programm geben.

Als Flüchtlingsfrauen sind wir einer doppelten Diskriminierung ausgesetze: Einerseits durch die Asylgesetze, die von schlimm immer schlimmer werden -von der Rückkehr der Residenzpflicht, Gutscheinde usw. Bis zu neuen Massenunterbringungen in den Ankerzentren, Polizeigesetzen und dem “Geordnete-Rückkehr-Gesetz” für schnelle Abschiebungen und Kriminalisierung von Geflüchteten, Unterstützer*innen und der Zivilgesellschaft. Andererseits erfahren wir eine Diskriminierung als Frauen*, die isoliert leben, ohne jede Privatsphäre. Wir sind Opfer ungeklärter Morde, sexueller Gewalt und Belästigung in den Heimen. Der aktuelle Fall unserer Schwester Rita aus Hohenleipisch, die ermordet und dann im Wald in der Nähe der Unterkunft hinterlassen wurde, ist einer der vielen ungeklärten Tode. Zusätzlich zu all dem leben wir mit Traumatisierung und Depression, die nicht nur auf unsere mentale, sondern auch unsere reproduktive Gesundheit Auswirkungen haben.

In Zeiten, in denen die Gesetze für Flüchtlinge immer restriktiver werden und die Repression gegen linke Bewegungen, progressive Gruppen und Personen, die Demonstrationen oder Kundgebungen anmelden, zunimmt, werden wir nicht leise sein!

Wir werden Grenzen durchbrechen und Brücken bauen!!!

Aus diesem Grunde haben wir 2008 den „Förderverein Karawane e. V.” gegründet. Unser Verein ist als gemeinnützig anerkannt und kann deswegen auf Wunsch Spendenquittungen ausstellen, so dass sie steuerlich absetzbar sind.

Großdemo gegen Abschiebehaft am 31.08. in Büren und Paderborn

2019 jähren sich drei traurige Ereignisse: 100 Jahre Abschiebehaft in Deutschland, 25 Jahre Abschiebeknast in Büren und der 20. Todestag von Rashid Sbaai, der sich im Abschiebegefängnis Büren selbst tötete.   Kommt am 31.08. zur Großdemo in Büren & Paderborn!


Wir fordern die Schließung aller Abschiebeknäste und das Ende der rassistischen Praxis der Abschiebung. Nationalismus, Antisemitismus und Rassismus sind keine Alternativen! Für die befreite Gesellschaft!


Aus Berlin wird es keinen Bus für eine gemeinsame Anreise geben. Tut euch zusammen und bildet Fahrgemeinschaften!

10 YEARS NETWORK WELCOME TO EUROPE

10 years after the noborder camp Lesvos 09

For us it was the most inspiring Noborder camp, which we ever have organized. In Lesvos in late summer 2009 about 400 noborder activists from various countries met together with hundreds of refugees and migrants, who just had arrived from Turkey with small boats on the coasts of this Greek island. Some weeks before already strong protests started in the detention prison „Pagani“, at the margin of the capital city of Mytilene. Ongoing rebellions from inside and demonstrations and scandalization from outside finally led to the closure off this „hell of Dantes Inferno“, an important success against the EU policy of determent. During the noborder camp an info point was established at the port of Mytilene, which became a crucial and vivid meeting point for a week of common fights for freedom of movement.

In the middle of these struggles the idea of Welcome to Europe (w2eu) was born: to build daily structures and to provide useful multilingual information to empower and to support refugees and migrants in transit for their right to move to their desired destination. We tried to build links to the various countries of arrival and destination and within the years the network grew with every friend who arrived somewhere.

In September 2019 it is 10 years ago and we look back to an impressive common history of coming together and projects, of protest and of commemoration, and last not least of innumerable friendships, which spread with and through w2eu all over Europe.

In this brochure we want to highlight some milestones of our network during this decade. We assembled a mixture of chronology and documentation, of personal stories and reports, of quotations and photos. We hope it will offer an interesting and exciting review on the last years.

Against the background of the ongoing roll back of the deathly EU border regime this booklet is also a promise for the future: we will tear down these borders and will go on with our struggle until freedom of movement and equal rights will be reality for everybody.

Liebe Freund*innen und Schwestern*,

vor fünf Jahren fand die zweite Konferenz der KARAWANE-Flüchtlingsfrauen*bewegung statt. Vor fünf Jahren sind wir zusammengekommen, um uns auszutauschen und Kraft zu schöpfen. Kraft, die wir für die täglichen Kämpfe gegen Abschiebung, Isolation, Trennung und rassistische Übergriffe brauchen. Weiterhin gehören Krieg und Vertreibung zu unserem Alltag. Wieder werden Menschen in Deutschland gejagt, Flüchtlingslager angegriffen. Viele unserer Freund*innen werden abgeschoben in eine ungewisse Zukunft voller Gefahren. Viele von uns sterben im Mittelmeer auf dem Weg nach Europa. Einige haben die Flucht geschafft, müssen aber in Griechenland oder in Italien in überfüllten Lagern, auf den Straßen oder in der „Illegalität“ überleben.

Wir denken an alle, die auf ihrer Flucht über das Mittelmeer, in der Wüste oder in Lagern gestorben sind. Wir denken an alle, die um ihr Leben fürchten müssen in Libyen, Jordanien, Marokko oder der Türkei. Wir denken an alle, die in der Wüste in Niger oder Mali ihren Körper verkaufen müssen und die schlimme Gewalt erleben. Wir denken an unsere Kinder, unsere Partner*innen und Verwandten, die immer noch den Bomben, der Gewalt, dem Hunger, den Gefängnissen oder der Perspektivlosigkeit in den großen Lagern und Containern ausgesetzt sind.

Wir kämpfen mittlerweile gegen eine noch aggressivere Asyl- und Ausländer*innenpolitik in Deutschland und Europa, die uns ständig kriminalisiert, terrorisiert, unsere Familien trennt und abschiebt. Wir kämpfen jeden Tag in den neu eingerichteten Lagern und Containern, damit wir die notwendige medizinische Versorgung bekommen oder unsere Kinder zur Schule gehen können. Wir kämpfen gegen die Isolation. Die Welt scheint aggressiver, unmenschlicher oder unsicherer geworden zu sein.

Vielleicht auch, weil wir den Zusammenhalt untereinander verloren haben, weil unsere Gemeinschaften schwächer geworden sind. All die Kriege und Konflikte sind nicht spurlos an uns vorbei-gegangen. Hass wurde zwischen uns gesät und wir wurden gegeneinander gehetzt.

Es reicht! Denn angegriffen und bedroht sind wir alle. Uns wurde das Recht auf Leben genommen. Wir aber, wir leben noch und können für uns und unsere Familien kämpfen.

Wir können einander die Kraft geben, die wir tagtäglich für das Überleben brauchen. Diese Kraft ist die Solidarität. Diese entsteht, wenn wir uns sehen, begegnen, miteinander sprechen und unsere Seelen berühren. Sie entsteht, wenn wir gemeinsam für jede einzelne eintreten und gleichzeitig unsere Rechte verteidigen. Wir kommen aus den unterschiedlichen Orten dieser Erde. Wir haben unterschiedliche Erfahrungen, sprechen tausend Sprachen und bringen die Stärken aller Kulturen und Farben mit. Gemeinsam können wir eine Welt ohne Ausbeutung, Kriege und Hunger nicht nur träumen, sondern auch leben! Unsere Waffen sind unsere Gesänge und Lieder, unsere Poesie und Tänze, unsere Geschichten und unsere Vorbilder. Daher laden wir euch ein zu unserem Flüchtlings-frauen*festival, damit wir gemeinsam ein Wochenende in Solidarität mit viel Musik und Diskussionen verbringen. Lasst uns als Frauen* zusammen tanzen, singen, kämpfen und Kraft schöpfen für die Zukunft.

Wir wollen uns treffen. Wir wollen uns austauschen. Wir wollen feiern.

Wir wollen über unsere Fluchtgründe reden.

Wir wollen über unsere Probleme reden, wenn wir unsere Kinder zu uns holen möchten.

Daily Resistance Assembly #2 on June 23

What is the current situation of our newspaper Daily Resistance? How could and should it continue? The second Daily Resistance Assembly takes place on June 23, 2019 in Café Karanfil. Come, discuss and decide with us!

English below / Francais en bas / Türkçe aşağıda

23. Juni 2019, 13 – 18 Uhr im Café Karanfil, Mahlower Str. 7 (U8-Boddinstr.)

Liebe Aktivist*innen, Autor*innen, Verteiler*innen, Leser*innen, Freund*innen und alle interessierten Menschen, 
im März fand die erste Daily Resistance Assembly statt. Viele von euch sind gekommen. Wir haben zusammen über die Zeitung gesprochen, und wir haben gemeinsam Entscheidungen getroffen, wie es mit Daily Resistance weitergeht. Wir wollen das begonnene Gespräch mit euch fortsetzen!
Wir haben entschieden, dass es regelmäßige Assemblys geben soll. Sie sollen einen Ort des Austauschs und Kontakts zwischen verschiedenen Initiativen des Refugee Movements schaffen, um gemeinsam darüber zu sprechen, was es in den Initiativen Neues gibt und was aktuell wichtige Themen sind. 
Die nächste Assembly findet am 23.6.2019 von 13 Uhr bis 18 Uhr im Café Karanfil statt (Mahlower Str. 7, U8-Boddinstr.).

Ende Juli soll außérdem die nächste Ausgabe von Daily Resistance erscheinen. Deshalb schlagen wir vor, diese Assembly auch dafür zu nutzen, um gemeinsam Forderungen zu sammeln, zu erarbeiten und zu erneuern. Wir wollen sie in der nächsten Ausgabe von Daily Resistance abdrucken, vielleicht direkt als Poster zum Rausnehmen.
Wenn ihr Fragen habt oder Themen vorschlagen wollt, schreibt uns eine Mail. Bitte sagt uns Bescheid, ob ihr kommt und ob ihr Kinderbetreuung braucht:dailyresistance@systemli.org


Hoffentlich bis bald!

DAILY RESISTANCE ASSEMBLY June 23rd 2019, 13:00 – 18:00, Café Karanfil, Mahlower Str. 7 (U8-Boddinstr.)

Dear activists*, authors*, distributors*, readers*, friends* and all interested people, our first Daily Resistance Assembly took place in March. Many of you came! Together we discussed the situation of our newspaper and decided, how to continue with Daily Resistance.  Now we would like to continue our conversation with you!
We therefore decided to organise the Daily Resistance Assembly more often. We hope the Assembly can give opportunity for exchange and contact between the many initiatives of the Refugee Movement. We hope the Assembly can discuss, what’s new in our initiatives, and to address those questions that are most important right now.  
Our next Assembly will take place 23.6.2019, 13 to 18 hours at Café Karanfil (Mahlower Str. 7, U8-Boddinstr.).

By the end of July we also want to publish the next issue of Daily Resistance. We therefore suggest to collect common demands, to articulate new demands as well as to renew the existing ones during this Assembly. We want to publish them in the next Daily Resistance, maybe even in form of a poster to take out.
If you have questions or if you want to suggest a topic beforehand, send us an email.Please let us know, if you can come and if you need childcare: dailyresistance@systemli.org


We hope to see you soon!

Solidarisch mit Bürglkopf- Hungerstreik in Innsbruck

Seit Sonntag, dem 09.06.2019, befinden sich in Innsbruck Aktivistinnen im solidarischen Hungerstreik. Vor dem Landesmuseum Innsbruck befindet sich seitdem rund um die Uhr ein Protestzelt. Der Streik in Innsbruck soll solange aufrechterhalten werden, bis der Forderung der Hungerstreikenden am Bürglkopf nachgekommen wurde. Diese fordern mit ihrem Protest die Schließung des „Rückkehrzentrums“. Seit dem 03.06 sind dort 17, mittlerweile 10 Personen im Hungerstreik. Drei Hungerstreikende mussten bereits stationär versorgt werden. In einem persönlichen Gespräch vor Ort sagt ein Mann: „Ich würde lieber sterben, als an diesem Ort zu bleiben.“ Die Schließung des „Rückkehrzentrums“, sowie eine Überführung in Grundversorgungseinrichtungen wird auch von Tirols Soziallandesrätin Gabriele Fischer (Grüne), der Neos- Sprecherin für Inneres und Asyl im Nationalrat, Stephanie Krisper, sowie weiteren Tiroler Landes- und Kommunalpolitikerinnen gefordert.
Die seit November 2017 bestehende Anlage liegt auf 1250 Metern Höhe, 3-4 Gehstunden vom Dorf Fieberbrunn entfernt. Die ca. 40 Personen, darunter Familien mit Kindern wurden dort zwangsuntergebracht und können die Region Kitzbühel nicht ohne strafrechtliche Konsequenzen verlassen. Sie haben keinen Zugang zu rechtlicher Beratung, was die Inanspruchnahme ihrer Rechte, sowie die Einhaltung juristischer Fristen verhindert. Da die Personen in dem Rückkehrzentrum nicht auf herkömmliche Weise abgeschoben werden können, versucht man sie durch die inhumanen Bedingungen dort zur „freiwilligen“ Ausreise zu bewegen. Eine Rückkehr wäre jedoch aufgrund der Kriegzustände im Herkunftsland oder politischer Verfolgung lebensbedrohlich. Der hungerstreikende Vater einer staatenlosen Familie hat uns mehrmals gefragt: „Wir haben nichts Kriminielles verbrochen um hier in Isolation zu landen. Wir wollen menschenwürdig leben und nicht wie Tiere.“

Bass Down Borders #3

Wann: 7. Juni um 22:00 – 8. Juni um 12:00

Wo: Mensch Meier, Storkowerstraße 121, 10407 Berlin

[DE]:
(english Version below)

Tanz deine Revolution? Deutschland kaputt raven? Bass Down Borders?!
…Uns ist natürlich bewusst, dass sich etwas so widerliches wie Nationalgrenzen oder ein „Heimatminister“ nicht einfach so wegbassen lassen. Trotzdem wollen wir mit unserer Veranstaltung einen Beitrag leisten, um die alltäglichen Kämpfe von geflüchteten Menschen für bedingungsloses Bleiberecht und eine solidarische Gesellschaft zu unterstützen.

Mit jeder Menge Techno, saftigem Downtempo, Ravepunk und einer guten Prise Drum n Bass wollen wir gemeinsam eskalieren, um uns dem rassistischen Normalzustand für eine Nacht so weit es geht zu entziehen und unser antirassistisches Solikonto zu füllen. Die Gelder gehen dieses mal an die Unterstützung von individuellen Bleiberechtsupport und an die Soligruppe #freeDW32, die weiterhin in Bayern Geflüchtete nach gewaltvollen Polizeirazzien in verschiedenen Lagern im Umgang mit Repressionen unterstützt.

ERMÄßIGTER EINTRITT VOR 0 UHR

In diesem Jahr stehen wir in inhaltlicher, kreativer und solidarischer Kooperation mit der Love Foundation Berlin Crew, welche für euch dann ab Samstag Mittag direkt im Anschluss Musik, Workshops und Inputs bereithalten (https://www.facebook.com/events/856850717993035/).

Auf unserer Veranstaltung gibt es keinen Platz für rassistisches, sexistisches Homo- und Trans*phobes Verhalten, sowie weitere diskriminierende Ismen.
Wir möchten das unsere Veranstaltung ein Safer Space für FLTIQ*s ist. Everybody is welcome!

[EN]:
Dance your revolution? Rave germany to pieces? Bass down borders?
…we know, that something disgusting like national borders or a so called “minister of homeland” cannot be bassed down or away. Nevertheless we want to make a contribution with our event to support the daily struggles of refugees for freedom of movement and for a society based on solidarity.
Together we want to escalate for one night with a lot of techno, juicy downtempo, resistant Ravepunk and a pinch of drum n bass, in order to elude the racist normality as far as possible and to fill our antiracist solidarity-account.

The money will be delivered this time to people who need support for their individual asylum cases and to the group #freeDW32. #freeDW32 are a bunch of people, who continuously supports refugees that suffer from state repression after police raids in different refugee camps in Bavaria.
Solidarity and resistance – bass down borders!

CHEAPER ENTRANCE BEFORE 0:00

This year we cooperate with the Love Foundation Berlin crew regarding content, creativity and solidarity. Their event will smoothly start saturday noon and we invite you to stay for their various program with music, workshops and inputs (https://www.facebook.com/events/856850717993035/).

In our Event we won’t have space for racist, sexist, homo- and transphob behaviour. Neither is any other discrimination tolerated.
We want our Party to be a safer space for FLTIQ*s. Everybody is welcome!

Building Bridges Festival 26.-29.07. 2019

Building Bridges Festival 2019

Translation: AR | FR FA |

Women in Exile & Friends are planning a three day open air summer action camp in Berlin. The camp is for refugee women* (individuals and refugee women groups) and women* working with and for refugee women* issues. This camp will enable all of us to exchange on our experiences as refugee women* living in isolation, facing racism and sexism. It will also give us the opportunity to explore on borders hindering our participation and to women in solidarity to reflect on their roles.

Our aim is to bring together refugee women* who have participated on national wide actions we have been organising since the year 2014. The refugee women* from Berlin/Brandenburg, Stimme der Frauen (Magdeburg), FLIT Solidarity Africa (Munich), Flüchtlingsfrauengruppe (Göttingen), NINA (Hamburg), Activists from Nürnberg, Kiel, Mecklenburg Vorpommern and possibly all the refugee women* we have come into contact with over the years.

In workshops and discussions, we will deepen some of the topics from our 2017 “Breaking Borders Conference” such as: new asylum laws, solidarity feminism, self-organisation and health ?

Feminist solidarity: How open are my political structures to refugee women*?

“Is it possible to learn from past experience for current feminist fights?” This question keeps on recurring in solidarity feminist debates. For centuries and decades, Women* have been organising themselves to fight against racism and sexism. Today we are organising ourselves for the same causes. These fights come from different groups which are discriminated and marginalised in the society, each group fighting for the issues which affect them. So there is a need to network and make “your fight, my fight”.

Refugee laws

The refugee laws are changing daily from bad to worse – from the backlash of the Residenzpflicht, racial profiling, vouchers etc. to new mass accommodations in the ANKER centers, proposals of new police laws and another Seehofer draft called “Geordnete-Rückkehr-Gesetz” on quick deportations and criminalisation of supporters and a critical civil society. What are our roles in changing this game?

Health and the Health Tribunal in 2020

Most of us refugee women and others we know are suffering traumas, depression and unexplained maladies connected to asylum seeking issues. We only have access to “third class” medical insurance and the „Asylbewerberleistungsgesetz“ which was passed in 1993 to discourage asylum seekers from coming to or staying in Germany is racist and discriminating!! How can we as refugee women* be part of the health tribunal taking place beginning of the year 2020 to denounce this status quo.

The Tribunal will be organized in the tradition of the PPT (Permanent Peoples Tribunal) which is a platform to give recognition, visibility and a voice to the peoples suffering violations of their fundamental rights, in this case health.

Creative Activism and spontaneous Actions:

Children who are part of our movement and as the following generation of the future fighters will have the opportunity to enjoying their holidays by coming out of the isolated spaces of the lagers and play together in the open, draw and having a loving full childcare surrounding, which will serve as a foundation of building future racist and sexist free society.

There will be space for creative and spontaneous actions such as a Floß- or street demonstration, live concerts, films, performances or any other action. For this we will provide an open stage to speak out against discrimination and violence, using our different (artistic / cultural / creative) expressions, we will be bridging our political ideas.

We see all this forms of expressions as a tool for self- and collective healing and visibility in public spaces.

Our Vision?

It is time to build a feminism which is inclusive and intersectional, a feminism that listens to all women* and ends racist, sexist and discriminatory structures. Through our experience, we are aware that fighting battles with women* is difficult because the society and the women* themselves think that women* are or should be happy with the little they have. For this reason, we expect from non-refugee women* an open minded solidarity participation in denouncing discrimination, racism, sexism and violence. It is time to look at our fights as same, same but different. We, refugee women*, are willing to join the civil society and be part of the fight to change the course of history.

We ask the non-refugee women* to reflect on “how your political structures are open to refugee women*” and how you could support or join the Building Bridges Festival. To quote one activist: “The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organisation, but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.”

We are women* living in this society and are part of the fight for a fair, inclusive society.

We cannot succeed if part of us are held back as refugee women* and we will continue denouncing racist’s laws, the existence of lagers and deportation policies.

We will continue breaking borders by bringing awareness about colonialism, capitalism and other flight reasons. These issues cannot be ignored. We have the right to peace, social inclusion and shared prosperity.

After the camp we’ll connect with other groups at the 5-days-meeting*Summer Feminist Connect* (30.7.-3.8.) in Meuchefitz (Wendland), which is collectively organized by NINA Hamburg, FLIT Solidarity Africa and Women in Exile & Friends. If you are interested to get more information and to join, let us know or mail to feminist_connect[at]riseup.net!

Further flight through EUrope

Afghan refugees from Bavaria in Paris, German speaking Pakistani refugees in Northern Italy, Somali refugees from Norway in Germany. The attempt to develop options for action based on solidarity.

Over the past two years, one round of tightening laws against refugees and migrants has been chased by another. In EUropean countries, the human rights of rejected asylum seekers are being trampled – homelessness and exclusion from social benefits as a means of deterrence. In light of this, more and more of those who are increasingly deprived of their rights decide to continue their flight to other EUropean countries. They are further fleeing from the threat of deportation or from impoverishment. They are also further fleeing, because some have had enough of the endless waiting. These are not always rational decisions, sometimes it would certainly be easier to continue the fight for the right to stay in the original countries of arrival. In most cases, however, the continuation of flight is underpinned by a conscious decision: the decision not to tolerate injustice any longer and to move on. Against stagnancy and for freedom. This text is an attempt to take a closer look at some of these further flight movements – and, above all, the attempt to develop options for solidarity. We do not have to start from zero. We can draw on decades of experience of solidarity with sans-papiers, with illegalised migrants throughout EUrope.

1. Three exemplary moments

Afghans from Bavaria flee Seehofer’s deportation charters to Paris

From Gare de l’Este to our meeting point with our Afghan friends at Porte de la Chapelle, we walk through streets full of migrant shops of all kinds: Indian tailors offering money transfers, Pakistani money transfers besides a Western Union, a Cameroonian hairdresser, a Somali restaurant, an Afghan grocery store, a Sudanese halal bistro… all side by side. A hairdresser offers advice in Bengali on problems with the Foreigners Authority (OPFRA). In these lively streets, Paris shows that all the racist madness of today has, in fact, already lost. At every corner one can feel the informal reality of migration, which creates spaces beyond the legal framework and has a long history here. With two Afghan friends from Bavaria we sit in an Afghan-Indian Hamburger-Fries-Kebab snack bar, where there are enough sockets for mobile phones to recharge and where the newly arrived get a discount on food. Some sit here also with sleeping bags and luggage. Another Afghan friend from Graz in Austria joins us at some point. Together they explain the system to us in some detail and try to underline what might be important for others who will come here, too. They talk about the difficulty of finding accommodation, about the first nights on the street and how difficult it is to find a place to recharge one’s mobile phones when you live on the street. We learn how important a French SIM card is at the beginning, because the first step in Paris is to register with the asylum authorities via a phone call.

Reza*, who has been here the longest, has witnessed the eviction of an informal settlement near Porte de la Chapelle. The residents were then distributed to various gym halls outside of Paris and after a lengthy procedure were given accommodation – for the time being. However, they did not receive any financial support and fear that they would soon be completely excluded from the system due to the Dublin proceedings, meaning that they would have to spend many more months on the street if they want to avoid deportation back to Germany. The two Afghan friends from Bavaria miss their previous place of residence very much. One of them could not bear it after the first week on the street in Paris and went back to Germany once again. But after a friend told him that the police were already there to pick him up for the charter deportation to Kabul, he returned to Paris.

Paris is the last hope for many Afghans who were rejected in Germany. Especially in Bavaria, which pursues the most rigorous deportation measures, it can affect almost anyone who is only legally ‘tolerated’ in Germany. Continuing the flight is a difficult decision. Some decide too early to flee, head over heels, when the foreigners authorities begin to exert pressure.[1] But some flee also too late. An article from July 2018 in the Stern magazine impressively describes in the portrait of a deportee to Afghanistan how he hoped until the end that the already signed vocational training contract would protect him.[2]

Pakistanis from Hessen in Northern Italy

With a protection rate between 70 and over 80% for Afghan refugees, the chance of obtaining a right of residence in France is indeed much better than in other EUropean countries – if the Dublin Regulation did not exist. The probability of a Dublin transfer to Germany is clearly given – absurdly about as many people are transferred from Germany to France (753 persons in 2018) as from France to Germany (978 in 2018).[3] And so, many people only have the option of going underground in France and thereby have to live with an extended Dublin transfer period of 18 months. Once this period has expired, the asylum procedure must be carried out in France. For many, going underground means having to survive two years in homelessness and without any support of the French authorities. They live in slums or somewhere without a roof. They do not speak French but Bavarian German – in Paris they are called “the Germans”. Nevertheless, life on the street is always better than being deported to Kabul – which usually means having to risk once more the dangerous path across the sea.

February 2018, a café in Gorizia, northern Italy. Around the tables men sit for hours with cups of tea, loading their mobile phones and chatting away. As it turns out, almost everyone speaks German as well as Urdu. It is a meeting point for newly arrived Pakistanis from Germany and Austria, who come to northern Italy to reapply for asylum. Unlike Austria and Germany, Italy still does not deport to Pakistan. We drive on, meet a friend from a small town in Hesse/Germany. He carries advertising leaflets and lives in an overcrowded apartment for which he has to spend a large chunk of his salary – simply a for a place with a mattress. But he soon has an appointment for his first Italian residence permit and is happy that he was not at home during the deportation attempt a few weeks earlier in Germany.

Many people, especially men, from Pakistan live in the Rhine-Main area around Frankfurt. About one-third of all Pakistani migrants in Germany live in Hessen. Quite commonly, at some point, they had failed with an asylum claim and lived for years, many since 2015 but more than a few even longer, with only status of ‘toleration’ (“Duldung”) in Germany. Until the beginning of 2017, the Pakistani government did not cooperate in issuing travel documents for deportations. Although many Pakistani migrants were tolerated during this period, deportation was in fact impossible due to the lack of travel documents. Most of them worked, often gastronomy (especially in pizzerias), but also in construction. The situation changed with the first deportation charter flights at the beginning of 2017. Before, there had been a lengthy period during which the Pakistani authorities refused to issue travel documents for deportations despite a readmission agreement between Germany and Pakistan that had existed since 2010 (and in late 2015,the Pakistani Minister of the Interior even announced that he had completely suspended the readmission agreement). Since 2014 there has been an agreement between Germany and Pakistan to allow Germany access to Pakistani databases. It appears that the German authorities have had direct access to the Pakistani database containing biometric data of Pakistani citizens (the so-called “electronic platform”), latest since early 2017.[4] Neither were the details of this “deal”  made public, nor the sum of money the Pakistani government was supposed to receive from the German government in exchange. For all “tolerated” Pakistanis, this created the incalculable risk of deportation. In 2018 alone, 367 people were deported to Pakistan, the majority in a total of 12 collection charter-planes. Almost every month a plane, always coordinated by Frontex, flew from Frankfurt, Berlin or Düsseldorf to Islamabad. While on the one hand we warned against exaggerated panic and gathered information about possibilities of the right to stay beyond the asylum procedure, on the other hand the search for alternatives became important.[5] Many Pakistani with “Duldung” decided to go to northern Italy from 2017 on. In some cities, mainly German-speaking Pakistani refugees from Germany and Austria gathered. While we had tried for a long time to prevent the Dublin deportations from Germany to Italy, it was now the other way round. In fact, Italy, for its part, has hardly implemented the Dublin Regulation to this day. There have been a few transfers from Pakistanis to Austria by bus but we have never noticed any deportations from Italy to Germany in all of this time.

With Salvini’s racist tightening of the law, from June 2018 onward, times became harder for the Pakistani friends also in northern Italy, so that, at the moment, the flight to northern Italy makes less and less sense. Although there still are no deportations from Italy to Pakistan, it is hardly possible anymore to get a right to stay. Even those who have already been temporarily legalised are now threatened with withdrawal of their humanitarian status, which has not been granted since the so-called Security Decree was passed at the end of 2018.[6] And so some of our Pakistani friends think about coming back to Germany. They are again seeking advice as to whether they could try to gain a foothold here once more. When viewed in light of the overall number of tolerated persons, there are only a few who are actually caught and deported in the end. And some are thinking about developing a new “Plan B” and evaluating possibilities in different European countries again, if necessary residing there illegally.

Somali women from Scandinavia and Eritrean women from Swiss bunkers continue to flee to Germany

3pm on a completely normal Monday: the refugee-café in a small occupied house in Hanau becomes alive. It is difficult to move through the strollers, table football is being played and conversations takes place while two women pray on the stage in the concert room. Still in 2013, when “Lampedusa in Hanau”, a self-organised group of East African refugees was created here, the issue at hand were almost exclusively Dublin proceedings to Italy. By 2017, at the latest, the issues had widened, and we started to face threats of deportation to almost all European countries. An Iranian with fingerprints in France, an Iraqi woman with a toddler who went through an unsuccessful asylum procedure in the Netherlands, a Somali man who had lived on the streets in Belgium after his rejection, Eritrean refugees from Switzerland who had had to live in bunkers. And, again and again Scandinavia – Afghans who fled being deported from Sweden, Somali women who faced the same threat in Norway. All of them had good reasons to flee – and a new fight for the right to stay began for all of them, which will continue for several years to come. Even if they do manage to prevent the Dublin deportation, they usually have a lengthy legal process ahead of them, because asylum applications in Germany are often rejected as confirmatory applications. If an asylum procedure in a EUropean country has already been negatively concluded, then the procedure here is assessed as a follow-up application in which only new reasons count. Within a few hours, the gruelling consequences of EUropean asylum policy can be experienced here – and always also the persistence of the people to get through them. It is true that it gets very noisy in this refugee-café in Hanau, there or sometimes larger crowds and it gets hectic, but most of the people are also very concerned about the others and there are always small groups sitting together in which those who have already survived the problem can share their experiences.

At the EU summit in Brussels in June 2018, the prevention of migration to EUrope was again negotiated. All horror scenarios of a failed EUropean asylum policy from satellite camps to hotspots were discussed at length and in great detail. The German Federal Government raised the issue of secondary migration within the EU as an important issue – not least because the phenomenon of secondary migration accounted for a significant proportion of the number of asylum applications filed in Germany in 2018. A similar phenomenon can also be seen in France. Over some months of the past years, the number of asylum applications in Germany was higher than arrivals by sea on all three routes to Europe. This was mainly due to the increasingly restrictive migration policy throughout EUrope. However, instead of discussing legalisation, the issue here was again isolation. While the Dublin Regulation was originally intended to prevent the phenomenon of secondary migration and flight, in today’s reality it accounts for a large proportion of flight in EUrope.

Fadumo* is 18 years old. She fled Somalia as a minor. Her parents died when Fadumo was two years old. She grew up with her uncle’s family, in which she experienced a lot of violence. She was subjected to genital mutilation as a child and still suffers from the physical consequences today. In 2015 she fled due to increasing problems with the Al Shabaab militia in her neighbourhood via Turkey and Greece and then on to Norway. In Norway, she was first accommodated in a shelter for minors. On her 18th birthday, she received a threat of deportation to Somalia following the rejection of her asylum application.

Fadumo therefore fled to Germany in January 2018, as she saw no perspective in Norway and noticed how other Somali refugees were deported to Somalia. In fact, after returning to Norway, she would be threatened with deportation to Somalia. In October 2017, a 36-year-old Somali woman had been deported from Darmstadt in Hesse to Norway. There she was arrested at the airport in Oslo, then detained for three weeks and deported directly from prison to Mogadishu.

In Somalia, Fadumo would not only have to fear further persecution from her family. Even as a single young woman, she would have little chance of securing a livelihood. Fadumo was therefore taken into church asylum in a parish in Hesse and was thus able to overcome the Dublin proceedings. She is currently in the process of filing a complaint, as her asylum application was then rejected as a secondary application. She does not give up and is certain that she will finally have a future here – because she has found a network that supports her, not least in a growing East African community. Fadumo’s story is that of many and she is not alone.

2. Further flight as resistance against the terror of deportation

These further flights are not only desperate forms of flight, they are active forms of resistance against the machinery and industry of deportation. At a time when EUropean interior ministers are outbidding each other with plans on how to make such machinery even more merciless and effective, these people are opposing it by ‘voting’ with their feet. They are building on the informal migrant structures that we experienced in Paris and described in the first part of this text. In them they find paths that are usually very stony, but which they prefer over being forcibly returned. In their search for a life without a constant fear, they set off again from countries within EUrope that they originally thought were the destination of their journeys.

Like many of their Pakistani friends in northern Italy, they are often exposed to massive forms of exploitation – often enough also within migrant communities, which are at the same time often the only sources of protection and the necessary, albeit often very precarious, infrastructure they need. Refugees who flee for the second, or third, time are often particularly vulnerable. Especially for women on the run, further flight and renewed illegalisation increase the danger of sexualised violence.

Many have already fought for years for the prospect of staying and are accordingly more exhausted than before. Quite a few are worn down by years of insecurity. As they continue to flee, they often face homelessness once more, and are therefore more at risk of suffering drastic health problems. In France (and in many other countries, too), living conditions during the Dublin procedure are a major problem: many of those affected receive accommodation only after long waiting periods (if at all), which they lose again as soon as they fail to report to local police stations during the Dublin procedure. Since the evacuation of the “jungles” in Calais, new informal settlements have emerged, initially in Paris and now in many places in France. It seems to be in the political interest to evict these settlements again and again, though they are also used as a deterrence strategy. A social worker from an aid organisation in Paris impressively described to us the danger of re-traumatisation and eventually impoverishment in homelessness, as many young adolescents get lost on the street and often end up addicted to drugs.

3. Connecting Solidarity Cities with one another

“From the sea to the cities”, a network of solidarity structures has formed in recent years, which has its origins in the support of refugees rescued from distress at sea. Here, sea rescue NGOs meet with representatives from municipalities in EUrope that adopt a different, solidarity-based attitude towards migrant travellers. They make connections with activist movements such as the “Seebrücke” networks in Germany. These often-informal networks can be important to maintain connections and strengthen migrant communities in EUrope by giving them additional support for their daily work and struggles.

What is still needed is a well networked “Underground Railroad” for freedom of movement, a structure that also supports the often-necessary instances of further flight. In times when there is no place of freedom, the movements can take place in all directions, not only from the port cities of the Mediterranean Sea towards the metropolises, but sometimes also from north to south. Along these routes that mark the shifts in miserable conditions within EUrope, also a map of solidarity can emerge.

Spaces of contact and connection are crucial to create this map of solidarity. Like the fast food bistros in Paris, which serve as recharging stations for mobile phones and where newcomers can drink tea and exchange ideas without being forced to consume, such spaces emerge from the solidarity of individuals. They are just as important as squatted houses and social centres, which serve not least as collectively created spaces for contact and exchange. In Athens, the occupied seven-storey-tall City Plaza Hotel gave a temporary home for up to 400 refugees at the same time. It also has the function of providing information about other solidarity structures with which fleeing people can connect.

Last but not least, City Plaza has also taken up the permanent challenge of how the struggles of women can take place in these spaces and how solidarity-based spaces can be created in such a way that they offer as little room as possible for exploitation and structural violence and where experiences of sexism and racism can be discussed openly. To do justice to the many experiences made here it would need a separate article but it is crucial to allude to them as they are central challenges when it comes to developing everyday structures of solidarity. The City Plaza Squat is a “lighthouse” and is certainly unique in its size and continuity for over 3 years. Nevertheless, it is representative of many other places that are less public and have formed information hubs of solidarity in a more quiet way but similarly producing rich experiences and developing further.

If transit no longer remains at the EUropes’ external border, but shifts to its centre with the increase in diverse forms of further flight and increasing illegalisation, then we need the experience gained from transit also for the metropolises at the heart of the EU. We need more of these places of solidarity, we need closer forms of networking with community structures and, not least, we need learning processes from successful practices.

This all sounds like a major task ahead. Nevertheless, as in all social struggles, every first attempt counts. It is possible to start small. If a circle of supporters from a small Bavarian town refuses to let the contact to an Afghan friend break off and continues to support him by providing the rent for a sleeping place in Paris and also visits him there every few months, three things are created: First of all, there is a very material form of solidarity, which in this concrete case may prevent a young man from becoming re-traumatised during his further flight. Second, a point of contact has been made, a contact in Paris, a person there who knows how it works when the next ones have to leave. And finally – as we know from experience – a story has been created that will live on both in the small Bavarian town and in Paris. This story will live on and will be told ten years from now, showing under which hard conditions and tough efforts, carried by solidarity, a right to stay was struggled for and realised.

We can create welcome islands and rent apartments in which friends can rest and develop a perspective. There are many models of welcome islands in Athens, rest houses in Rabat and shelters for ‘illegal’ immigrants from the past. We can also build on the structures of previous struggles when it comes to medical care: since the end of the 1990s at the latest, with medical aid provided to refugees in Germany, structures have been built up that in some cities have also been able to fight for communal medical care for illegalised and uninsured people today.

Cities in Germany are also stations of transit. The extended transfer periods in the Dublin proceedings, which force more and more people to survive up to 18 months, while completely deprived of their rights, are also here regarded as ways to generate deterrent effects in the long term. More and more people spend long periods of time illegally in the cities in order to survive their Dublin deadlines. Here we need more structures and networks of support.

So, we need more solidarity rooms and apartments. We also need more contact points for those who are completely deprived of their rights, where it is possible to develop perspectives for each individual beyond the increasingly narrow legal requirements. And above all, we need to strengthen the community structures that are based on solidarity and find ways of connecting them with one another. This is not so difficult, because much of it already exists. We need a long-lasting power and energy to overcome this migration regime – and we need the courage to enforce equal rights for all every day. In all cities, we need to contest these outdated ideas of national legislation. . In Italy, the port cities with their solidarity with the newcomers are already showing us the way.

After years of residence in Italy, most of them have started to flee because their living conditions have become unbearable, not least because of the increasing racist agitation in the media, and because they cannot develop a perspective on the right to stay in Italy.
