Benefit Freedom of Movement

Monday November 6th 2017, Benefit Freedom of Movement. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm

The current developments on the EU-borders demonstrate the power of migration that breaks the illusion of Europe as an island of equal rights, civilization, democracy and welfare(state). We support the migrants who come to our borders and welcome them The EU has always pretended to be in control of the border security without degenerating into a Fortress Europe. Given the large numbers of migrants entering ‘irregularly’ today, the EU broke out in panic while portraying migrants as a threat and migration as a crime. The repressive EU-deal like the one with Turkey is not new. Other buffer states such as Morocco, Libya, Mauritania, Senegal have had to sign those deals in the past where migrants, irrespective of flight pattern, are kept outside the EU. Human rights are violated outside the EU in return of a bag of money. The war against immigrants is just more visible now because it is clear that the EU cannot control the migration at its borders. We support migrants breaking through borders and confronting the image of the EU as an tolerant civilization. The EU is pressuring African states to stop migration threatening with stopping development Aid: the Velletta agreements. We say: Open Escape Routes! Stop Deportations! Our African friends are resisting these deals: http://www.allincluded.nl/posts/actie-landgrabbing-office-du-niger-in-mali/

All Included is involved in Afrique-Europe Interact, a partnership between African and European grassroots organizations that support free migration and sustainable development. Contacts are mainly in Western Europe (Mali, Togo, Burkina Faso, Senegal) and North Africa (Morocco, Tunisia). Themes are deportation, freedom of movement, land grabbing, corruption. All Included is also active in Watch the Med http://www.watchthemed.net/) and Alarm Phone (http://alarmphone.org/en/), a 24-hour emergency phone for those who cross the Mediterranean. Undocumented migrants in Amsterdam are where possible supported by All Included.

What’s included?

All Included Amsterdam is a new initiative that fights for freedom of movement and for the right of residence for migrants. In a time when globalization is a fact, migration should be recognized as part of a package deal. It’s All Included. This means: no illegality, no detention for undocumented migrants and no forced evictions.

With the disappearance of national borders, national identity disappears. Everyone becomes global citizen and deserves regardless of origin equal rights and equal opportunities. Therefore also for migrants ‘all included’ rights and obligations.

Allincluded.nl fightsg for an open society through extra-parliamentary action which intervenes in the political climate of assimilation, closeness and fear. Through direct assistance to rejected asylum seekers and other migrants without residence permit, indictments against abuses of current polities are being propagated. We want to contribute to the public debate with alternative visions of migration and globalization based on open borders, solidarity and initiative from the base.

Monday the 16th of October 2017, Solidarity with G20 prisoners – OIA+KALI Queer Feminist Rap. Volkseten Vegazulu at 7pm. Between 9 and 10pm, Queer Feminist Rap on the stage.

OIA (Gran Canaria, Spain) + KALI (Limache, Valparaíso, Chile) are 2 interdisciplinary artists who seek to deliveeir music and rap a countercultural, antifascist, feminist and queer message that breaks the canons andes of the body established by the neoliberal system. Ni una menos on https://youtu.be/XtFgy7zo1ww

What: benefit VOKU for all the political prisoners of the G20 protests
Where: Joe’s Garage, Pretoriusstraat 43, 1092 EZ Amsterdam
When: Monday the 16th of October, at 19

Why:
’Society has failed when it imprisons those who question it’
Last July hundreds thousands of people took the streets in Hamburg, to speak out against the one-liberal policies of the G20. Right form the start there was a systematic and targeted criminalisation of activists. Escalation from the side of the police, false statements from the state, and framing in the media distracted the public debate from the political message of the activists and aimed to break the movement on the streets.

29 activists are still being held in prison now, most of them still awaiting trial. The court ruling that we have seen and the imposed penalties show these are politically symbolic cases. This repression of activists of the G20 is part of a growing tendency throughout Europe that targets left-wing activists and organisations. Solidarity is the answer.

We want freedom for all prisoners of the G20. With this VOKU we collect money to support and show our solidarity, for example by sending books and, where necessary arrange for extra lawyers.

Enjoy a meal, make a donation, write a letter, the 16th of October at the VOKU for the political prisoners of the G20 protests.

Solidariteit met de G20 gevangenen

Wat: benefiet VOKU voor alle politieke gevangenen van de G20 protesten
Waar: Joe’s Garage, Pretoriusstraat 43, 1092 EZ Amsterdam
Wanneer: Maandag 16 oktober, om 19 uur

Waarom:
’Society has failed when it imprisons those who question it’
In juli gingen honderdduizenden mensen de straat op in Hamburg om zich uit te spreken tegen het neo-liberale beleid van de G20. Vanaf het begin vond er een een systematische en doelmatige criminalisering van activisten plaats. Escaleering vanuit de politie, false uitspraken van de staat en portrettering in de media leidde het publieke debat af van de politieke boodschap van de activisten en trachtte de beweging op straat te breken.

29 activisten zitten nog altijd vast, de meesten al bijna 3 maanden in afwachting van een process. De uitspraken van de rechter, en toegeschreven straffen laten zien dat het om politiek symbolische veroordelingen gaat. Deze repressie van activisten bij G20 is deel van een groeiende tendens van onderdrukking van linkse activisten en organisaties in Europa. Solidariteit is hierop het antwoord.

Wij willen vrijheid voor alle gevangenen van de G20. Met deze VOKU zamelen we geld in om de gevangenen te kunnen ondersteunen en solidariteit te tonen, bijvoorbeeld door ze boeken te sturen en waar nodig extra advocaten te regelen.

Kom eten, doe een donatie, schrijf een kaart, 16 oktober bij de VOKU voor de politieke gevangenen van de G20 protesten.

Benefit voku: Solidarity with G20 prisoners

Monday 9 October 2017, Benefit voku: Solidarity with G20 prisoners. Music with Abigail Lapell and Shawn William Clarke, indie folk from Candada. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm then update about the G20 prisoners. Music from 8:30pm till 10pm.

During the G20, political and economic leaders of the world gathered in order to plan the continuation of their wars, exploitation of people and animals, and the destruction of the environment. To revolt against this is necessary and gives hope. Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets in Hamburg to obstruct these festivities for the elite. The German state, in an attempt to criminalise a few individuals, has now rapidly changed the topic to bottles and fireworks which were thrown (or not) during the riots. Not very convincing as a distraction for the real problems in this world. From the first day, the actions against the G20 were met with harsh repression. Hundreds of people were hurt and arrested due to police violence and the tactics of escalation.

Benefit voku for refugee families in the Netherlands

Thursday October 5th 2017, Benefit voku for refugee families in the Netherlands. Volkseten Vegazulu at 7pm.

Children who have been in the Netherlands for over 5 years have settled here. To rip them from their environment is irresponsible and damages their development. Still it happens often; children are being dragged from their home by lots of police and are then deported. Daily they live with this fear. A law that should stop this – the ‘Children’s Amnesty’ – costs families 170 euro’s per family-member appliance. 98% of the applications are denied, so this is actually throwing money down the drain.
GEEN KIND AAN DE KANT is of the opinion that the application-costs are way too high, especially since this money goes directly to the state without much result. Still we want to help refugees who want to try this, to share their burden. Therefore we are collecting money to try and support them by paying 15% of their application. We will do this for as long as there is money, but unfortunately this is not endless. https://geenkindaandekant.wordpress.com/
That is why we would like to ask you for help share this load, by coming to the benefit VOKU at Joe’s Garage on Thursday October 5th starting from 19:00 – Pretoriusstraat 43 Amsterdam.


Vluchtelingkinderen die langer dan 5 jaar in Nederland zijn, hebben zich hier geworteld. Hen uit hun omgeving trekken is onverantwoordelijk en schadelijk voor hun ontwikkeling. Toch gebeurt het veel; zij worden met politieovermacht uit hun huis gehaald en gedeporteerd. Zij leven daarom dagelijks in angst. Een regeling die hier een eind aan zou moeten maken – het Kinderpardon – kost voor de aanvraag 170 euro per gezinslid. 98% van de aanvragen wordt vervolgens afgewezen, waardoor het allemaal weggegooid geld is.
GEEN KIND AAN DE KANT vindt de aanvraaggelden die betaald moeten worden voor het Kinderpardon belachelijk hoog, vooral omdat het geld vrijwel rechtstreeks de staatskas in gaat en er maar erg weinig aanvragen worden ingewilligd. Toch willen we vluchtelingen die deze weg willen bewandelen, proberen te helpen deze gigantische last te dragen. Daarom zijn we geld aan het inzamelen om te proberen 15% per aanvraag te kunnen helpen betalen. Dit kunnen we doen zolang we geld hebben, maar zodra het op is, is het op. https://geenkindaandekant.wordpress.com/
Daarom vragen we jullie om een steentje bij te dragen door naar een benefiet VOKU te komen in Joe’s Garage op donderdag 5 oktober vanaf 19:00 – Pretoriusstraat 43 Amsterdam.

Can Dialectics Break Bricks Cinema: I was Nineteen (Konrad Wolf, 1968)

Sunday 1st October 2017, Can Dialectics Break Bricks Cinema: I was Nineteen (Ich war neunzehn). Directed by Konrad Wolf. 1968, 115 minutes. In German with English subtitles. Doors open at 8.30, film starts 9pm. Free admission.

Here we dive into East German cinema, which in the 50s and 60s was often actually better than the movies peddled in West Germany! This one is a coming-of-age movie about a teenager in the chaotic insanity of the second world war. The narrative was put together from director Konrad Wolf’s own diaries and personal memories. This moody gem is a searing and intimate life story of a boy whose family left Germany for Russia when he was eight, and later finds himself confronted with the ironic situation of fighting his own people (the Germans) in World War II. We follow him as a young Russian soldier in a squadron that is making its way to Berlin in the final days of the war.

This is a masterpiece of East German cinema, which is not as much concerned with following the logic of war as it is with the weird situations that our main character encounters. There are moments that are chaotic, unpredictable, often senseless, bordering on the surreal, and you find dragged through one amazing, bizarre situation after another. It is a rough journey, sometimes even terrifying, but compared to its Hollywood/Spielberg counterparts this movie is devastatingly poetic and meditative. My god, what has happened to aspects like poetry and mood in movies? In any case, this film has them both still intact. Plus, it of course it offers us a very different view of history than what is depicted here in the West. The b&w cinematography is riveting and helps to create the meditative atmosphere of this beautifully crafted East German DEFA film.

Benefit for the G20 arrestees

Monday 18th September 2017, Benefit for the G20 arrestees in Hamburg. Volkseten Vegazulu at 7pm. After the food, legal update.

The first court case of the G20 arrestees took place in Hamburg on 28 August. A 21 years old Dutch comrade, accused of throwing two bottles at a cop during the Welcome to Hell demo on 6 July 2017, got convicted to 2 years and 7 months jail. This trial was nothing more than a big set up before the federal elections to be held on 24 September.

On 29 August, a Polish man was sentenced by the court in Hamburg to a suspended six-month prison sentence. On 8 July, during a search near a demonstration, the cops found backpack containing seven crackers, a lacrymo bomb, diving glasses, a rope and black clothes. The judge explained his decision by stating: “It is clear to the court that the accused was on his way to a demonstration “.

The public prosecutor launched 109 investigative procedures against “known” persons and 64 others against “persons unknown”. The charges generally concern “breach of the peace”, “violence causing injury”, “resisting the police” and “destruction”. In some cases, the accused risk prison sentences of up to 10 years. Other procedures could be added to those already underway, as the investigations continue. Till today, 189 “presumed guilty” persons have been arrested in connection with the G20 summit and 51 arrest warrants have been issued. 32 people, who are not from Germany, are still being held on remand for the anti-G20 riots.

Finally, the politicians are still traumatized by this counter-summit in Hamburg. Thus various political parties (SPD, CDU, Greens and FDP) are going to meet every two to three weeks, probably until the summer of 2018 in a commission on the G20. Various points will be addressed, including preparations for the G20, the development of the days of the G20 and its consequences.

Moreover, let us recall that an unprecedented repressive blow has struck the autonomous media in Germany, almost two months after the counter-summit. Friday, August 24, the free publication platform Indymedia Linksunten was shut down by the Minister of the Interior Thomas de Maizière, declaring it prohibited by the use of the law on associations. The following day, several searches were carried out by the LKA on persons suspected of moderating the site, in Freiburg. In addition to 4 apartments, the KTS autonomous centre was also searched and the entire IT infrastructure has been seized.

It is clear that the autonomous and anarchist agitation of recent times in Germany, with countless direct actions and sabotage against the infrastructure of capital and the State, is one of the reasons for the prohibition of this site, which largely contributed to the disorder, both during the days of the G20 but also especially before and after. Linksunten is one of the few German-speaking sites on which are published a good number of press releases of attacks and direct actions, which are obviously a danger to power and its henchmen.

Let us not forget that if this counter-summit was so devastating, it is linked to the fact that the many anarchist calls to sabotage the G20 had a real echo across the country. Putting this platform out of use is one of the many ways that power disposes of to put an end to the offensive and insurrectional dynamic.

More than ever, active and offensive solidarity with the comrades of Germany!
