« No-Stress-Tour 2016, First edition  »       Flyer made by Mathis…

Summer is the time when lots of things are happening in Germany, also in and around Berlin.
People profit of the sun, they become more active and open up. This offers opportunities,
particular for refugees, to think of new strategies to build up a better communal life.
For this reason CISPM and Afrique Europe Interact, international networks for emancipation and
integration of refugees, are planning a project called „No Stress Tour“, which should take place this
summer from June until October.
The aim of the project is to bring refugees and other inhabitants of the city closer to each other
and to provide support with regard to the current complex asylum policy.
Despite the willingness of refugees, to open up to other residents and the willingness of other
citizens to reach out to refugees, we noted that there are still barriers, based on anxious
informations.
„Refugees are rapist, suicide assassins or simply undesirables and Germans are historically
radical racists“ – this opinion, which is based on individual cases and is used for the electoral game
influences the public opinion, causing despotism on one side and stress among others .

No-Stress-Tour 2016, First edition… Made by Mathis

As the „No Stress Tour“ is primarily organized and planned by persons which are themselves
refugees and European citizens, they will also directly or indirectly profit from the benefits the
project offers.
Because of its flexibility, the „No Stress Tour“ facilitates the exchange between refugees and
other inhabitants of the districts and sensitizes people on issues such as the controversial asylum
policy, with special focus on the emancipation of women and children.
To achieve our goal, we will organise weekends full of activities in various refugee camps from
June to October, which will be carried out in two camps each month in or around Berlin and
Bielefeld.
Invited are in particular refugees, citizens of the concerning districts, doctors and lawyers for
refugees, mayors, socially active groups and people with migration background.
The various activities are adressed to all the persons directly concerned.
To the citizens of the districts, to all refugees and particular to all woman and children.
Planned weekend schedule for the „No Stress Tour“:
Friday:
· soccer: mixed: Germans/ Refugees
· Meeting and discussion with woman and children
Saturday:
· volleyball: mixed: Woman/Men
· Meeting and discussion with woman and children
Sunday:
· guided tours in camps, concert
· performance of 5 different groups of artists
· Asylummonologue
· Discussion about asylum laws and policy
Besides the fact that we want to bring the citizens closer to refugees and at the same time to
show refugees that there are people supporting them in their rights, we also want to conscientize
and enforce women who particularly live in a difficult situation facing special troubles being
women, as well as we want to conscientize children in their right to education.
Due to the participation of refugees and locals, we expect this poject to be very promising.
But of course the activities which will take place in the camps throughout the hole weekend
require financial support.
We hope to establish a good atmosphere between all inhabitants in order to continue and to
improve the project in the next years.

[Corasol] 10-17.04.2015, Berlin: call for a long-term protest with performance, workshops, discussins and concert

Call for participation

In order to resist the upcoming restriction of residence law in this
country that will be decided in the Bundestag on 8th of May,
we’re calling for a long-term protest daily 2 pm to 7 pm between the
10th and the 17th of April at Brandenburger Tor/Pariser Platz.

We’d love to organise for a cultural and political program that helps
to make the protest more visible. If you want to make a contribution,
please contact us!

corasol@web.de

We’re lancing this call but the action is for everyone to make out of it what we can and want, so let’s cooperate to live up the place and make the week of action against residence restriction colourful and a space for organizing and learning! It would be really great to have different performances, workshops, discussions and concerts throughout the protest week.

Please get in touch and hope to see you there,
corasol

[Alliance Come_Together] 10th – 17th April 2015, Berlin: daily demonstration against stricter asylum law

Stop the impending aggravation of the asylum laws!

Daily Demonstration 10th till 17th of April 2015 Pariser Platz 2-7pm

After the extension of the list contained within the so-called “regulation of safe countries of origin” in autumn 2014, another aggravation of the residence act is being planned now, which has the potential to transform nearly every asylum seeker into a criminal. While Pegida is holding racist demonstrations, the parliament nearly fulfils some of there demands with this upcoming law.

In future, deportations shall be carried out harder and more consequently. Criteria for imprisonment are extremely extended. Additionally, the possibilities of imposing entry- and residence-bans are to be widened. Especially „tolerated“ people and refugees subject to the Dublin-procedure are facing these extensive repressions.

We oppose the law draft, slated to be implemented in June 2015.
Through this daily demonstration we want to make this subject more visible! The tigtening of the law calls for more than an usual demonstration. By means of daily presence, workshops, cultural programm and information for pedestrians we want to reveal that this law will make life for refugees even worse than it already is!


For our action to be succesful we need you!

Join us!

Take shifts,

offer workshops,

make a concert,

play theatre,

etc.!

Say no to the new law draft by the federal government for the “re-definition of the right to stay and the termination of stay”!

Flight is not a crime!

For a community in solidarity without exclusion!

ECCHR has been examining the scope for legal intervention against the practice of push-backs in the EU and has been helping affected persons with individual legal proceedings

Beyond Borderline: Refugee and Migrant Exclusion in Europe

Kilometers of barbed wire exclusion fences, thousands of high-tech patrols at sea, in the air and on land, push-back agreements with neighboring countries: the European Union goes to great lengths to exclude people fleeing from war, persecution and hardship in their home countries. To justify their actions leaders in Brussels and the EU member states claim the push-backs are politically necessary and permitted under law.

Every other week another boat carrying migrants and refugees capsizes or sinks off the coast of Italy or Malta. Witnesses frequent report instances of abuse at the borders between Turkey and Greece. There is a steady climb in the number of people who lose their lives while trying to cross the Moroccan-Spanish border. All of these events serve as evidence of the terrible failure of the EU’s asylum and refugee policies.

Illegal push-backs or forced returns at EU borders represent a flagrant violation of fundamental human rights and refugee laws. In the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla on the northern coast of Africa, refugees and migrants are repeatedly subjected to brutal violence from border guards. Anyone attempting to enter these Spanish cities – and therefore reach EU territory – are immediately deported to Morocco without any examination of their right to asylum. During this process, injuries and even deaths are common. Stripped of their rights, it is almost impossible for victims to take any form of legal redress.

Over the past year ECCHR has been examining the scope for legal intervention against the practice of push-backs in the EU and has been helping affected persons with individual legal proceedings.

PROTECTING HUMAN RIGHTS WITH LEGAL INSTRUMENTS

Guaranteeing human rights worldwide is one of today’s most important challenges. Even now, at the start of the 21st century, systematic violations of human rights occur in every region of the world. Across the globe, genocide, torture, deportation, oppression, as well as limitations of social, economic and cultural rights transpire due to ethnical, political, religious or gender discrimination.

Governments and public authorities have actively committed or tolerated these crimes and denied people their most basic rights. Moreover human rights are often violated or ignored through ruthless corporate business practices for the sake of economic gain. Those responsible are rarely called to account. The need to prosecute those responsible for atrocities was first recognized by the International Military Tribunals of Nuremberg and Tokyo. There it was avowed that the impunity of responsible persons abets new crimes. Legal institutions must defend human rights and uphold this litigation.

In recent years some of the most important and innovative human right cases have been initiated in Europe.

Criminal charges against the former Chilean president Augusto Pinochet, the architects of the Argentinean military junta in Spain, Zakir Almatow, the Uzbek Minister of the Interior, as well as the former US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, were all filed in Germany.

These initiatives highlight the need for the independent coordination of human rights litigation, strategic juridical development and critical reflection.

Furthermore, cases involving the American Central Intelligence Agency’s « extraordinary rendition » program, which involves the movement of suspects across international boarders, exemplify the necessity for cooperation and advocacy on a European and international level between human rights organizations.
ECCHR

The European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) is an independent, non-profit legal and educational organization dedicated to protecting civil and human rights throughout Europe. It was founded in 2007 by a small group of renowned human rights lawyers, in order to protect and enforce the rights guaranteed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as well as other declarations of human rights and national constitutions, by juridical means. ECCHR engages in innovative strategic litigation, using European, international, and national law to enforce human rights and to hold state and non-state actors accountable for egregious abuses.

While we await any attempt to force us into imprisonment as we excise civil disobedience against Apartheid “Residenzpflicht”, we shall embark on a Tour all over Germany to damask the repressive policies against Refugees in Germany.

The Tour will serve as a platform for exchange amongst Refugees with a critical view to the 2015 deceptive Asylum “relief” in comprehensive relation to the horrific Asylum “Compromise” of 1993 up to the hypocritical decision of the German Federal Constitutional Court in 2012.

In this tour, refugees will be informed about the “Adverse faces of Germany” enforced through arbitrary powers at different levels, the system of Refugee Isolation and control, the continuous exploitation of Refugees here and beyond the borders of Europe. Their propaganda is built on the grounds of ignorance of a “civilized” society and at the expense of Refugee’s human dignity.

Now is the time to mobilize Refugee’s solidarity and empower networking within our communities through the intimate understanding that we all face the same problems – even though the situations might appear to be different.

Our experiences have confirmed that nothing good can be expected from Imperialist States like Germany except by direct confrontation and scandal.

As your responsibility to support the revolution of the oppressed you should mobilize refugees and organize discussion events in your region. Announce your dates so as to enable us plan our schedule. We will be glad to join you for exchange.
