Cancelled!!! Perspectives

Update: Due to Corona we decided to cancel/postpone the Event Series. Help each other and stay safe


Event series about deportation and deportation custody

Since 1919 german law contains detention pending deportation. In Dresden-Friedrichstadt a detention center was opened in late 2018. The of this form of custody is, that refugees who shall be deported cannot hide from deportation. There is no need for a crime to be placed in custody. It can be enough to miss an official appointment.

In many cases, massive violations of fundamental rights can be observed. One lawyer reported that in about 50% of his cases, people were unlawfully taken into custody. In most cases the court-decision was made after the after the deportation. Prisoners of deportation detention don’t have a lobby that fights these illegitimacies.

There are many reasons to question the purpose of prisons in our society. Yet it is quite clear, that deportation detention is a cruel way to treat people, who came to Europe to flee from war, poverty, persecution and many other legitimate reasons.

This march and april we would like to look at this topic from different perspectives. How does depotation custody work? Why can it be criticized? Who is involved? Can i support affected people? Do we actually need prisons? Come to our events between march 20th and april 23rd!

A Call for Solidarity Actions February 22-29

We must not forget the anarchists and anti-fascists suffering repression in Russia! We are calling for people to take action of all forms to express support for these prisoners, to protest the prison system, and to spread information about the use of torture as an instrument of repression in Russia.

Why now? On 10th February, 630 kilometers from Moscow, the court in Penza passed sentence on seven people accused of organizing the so-called “anarchist terrorist community ‘Network’”. This entire case is based on confessions the defendants were forced to agree to via intense torture as well as weapons planted by police and an extremely tenuous accusation that they were “planning to plan terrorist actions to overthrow the government of Russia”. For a “crime” without victims involving no real action and no real plan, the sentences decreed by the court are shockingly high. Dmitry Pchelintsev and Ilya Shakursky, the supposed organizers of this fabricated “Network,” were sentenced to 18 years and 16 years in prison, respectively. The others have been sentenced as follows: Arman Sagynbaev 6 years, Andrei Chernov 14 years, Vasily Kuksov 9 years, Mikhail Kulkov 10 years, and Maxim Ivankin 13 years of imprisonment.

June 11th: the international day of solidarity with Marius Mason and long-term anarchist prisoners

June 11th: the international day of solidarity with Marius Mason and long-term anarchist prisoners. In the 15 years this tradition has been observed, June 11th has facilitated support and action inspired by imprisoned anarchists — from noise demonstrations outside of jails to letter-writing nights, from fundraisers to arson. Setting aside this day is one way of remembering anarchists who are serving long prison sentences, generating support for them, and inspiring solidarity actions.
