Last week human rights activists – who are engaged in the refugee struggle too – and Fountainhead Tanz Théâtre/ Black International Cinema Berlin/ THE COLLEGIUM Forum & Television Program Berlin organized an evening of political debates in the Humboldt-University. By distributing flyer we came into touch with students, who were interested to attend and came to this event.
First we screened two films with the subject of political power and political activism and reflected „reqests or demands“… and after that we debated the struggle and what’s the need to receive more power and awareness about the social, economical and political reality.Political activists in and of the colonized countries are fighting a very hard struggle, because they have to overcome the dictatorship in their native countries AND the governments, who have neocolonialistic interests too… And behind the interest of the political and military power of the imperialistic countries are the capitalistic corporations, who want the ressources and the market for their wares/commodities.
I really wanted to say more about this by reflecting the Tunisian revolution, but because I’ve had the job of moderation, I couldn’t speak so much and touched only this subject.
The political activists of the colonialized countries can’t win their struggle without an uprise of the working class in the high developed countries.
Therefore we have to constitute associations with suffering citizens. You don’t will find a movement, who can win a struggle only for a reduced goal for themselves, if you we take the human rights declaration as reason and starting point for social justice.
We’ve had common debates with people from the antigentrification movement and we can establish a common struggle for „Good housing for all“ as well we can start to struggle against the low wages and exploitation together with other activist groups. AND we can come together with unemployed people who ares fuffering under the law of „Ortsanwesenheitspflicht“ and are punished by the JobCenter authorities. We can organize a demonstration against „Residenzlaw“ and „Ortsanwesenheitspflicht“, because both laws are violating our right of free movement.
But for this we have to make a change in the realtion of „refugees“ and „supporters“. We have to become human rights activist who are struggling for the same goals.
