Workshop on Self-understanding of Refugee Struggle

Discuss, explain and planning on base of words that were presented and used by European culture and science which was never able to have a position for refugees is the most common mistake and problem that we are facing in this days in our struggle and resistance.

Create a refugee’s political discussion/dictionary is one of the goals from self-organized media groups of the movement that gets more necessary every day.

This dictionary should be a manual user for our activists to keep them mentally upgraded and up to date for their daily fight in this dominant. Thousands of refugees every year leave their places to resist in front of the brain washed ideological system with brutal, colonial and violence instruments in the whole world.

As Germany and EU with Frontex, integration and deportation structures are the most advertised defender of human dignity, self-determination becomes the only way for now and future to present the political potential of the refugee’s position.

By analyzing the latest refugee activities catching and exposing the problems are much easier than before to not be just experimental also organize in front of construction support.

In the other hand it must be very clear which power create the insecurity to produce the oppressed in the origins of refugees and here, where it is now.

+Inputs on The Elements of Crimes of Deportation:

20 years of Refugee Resistance

Seminar and Workshops on the Elements of crimes of deportation the following on the objectives:

To evaluate our political perspectives, analyse the consequences of deportation threats in Germany and Europe and forge ahead with our quest for freedom from persecution.

How are refugees in Europe criminalised and stigmatised by the injustice of deportation?
- Refugee deportation and the crimes of political persecution of refugees in Europe
- Political persecutions of refugees through multiple violation of social and basic rights in Europe.

We invite all and sundry to discuss on:

1. Awareness about human rights abuses and persecution of refugees.
2. Crimes perpetrated during the deportation process which are used as basic machineries to scare people from self-determination (vocabulary platform of crimes see www.wikideportationcrimes [to be implemented]).
The fate of increasing number of refugees under daily deportation threats lies in the hands of the German State and we have to constantly challenge this vicious cycle in support of those who are deported and those to be deported.
How efficiently we can fight to end this colonial mentality of terror will be one of the main objectives of our discussions.

We aim to:

Denounce the constant deportation threats and end the sense of fear and insecurity which are consequencies of crimes committed through willful deportation abuses and every day violations with no end in sight.
The crimes, maltreatment and abuses can be summed up to include the following:
Violence against the victims, political persecution, arrests, imprisonment, police brutality, repression, oppression, restrictions, isolation, lager, forcing into illegalisation, terror, criminalisation, racism, murder, fascism, stigmatisation, homophobia, sexism, chauvinism, surveillance, forced fingerprint registration, exploitation, impoverishing etc.
We want to highlight on the deportation chain through the fates of those affected and also the consequences of the abuses by the crimes of forced deportation.

We shall be establishing a map of this deportation chain highlighting the responsible officers in the deportation process, their positions, how much power they wage and who controls them. The people and places, the role of the State Police, the politicians, institutions, the media, Non Governmental Organisations (NGO’s), churches will be actualized through independent investigation.
