Stop EU complicity in migrant deaths at external borders – Benefit All Included

Thursday December 12th 2019, Stop EU complicity in migrant deaths at external borders – Benefit All Included, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

All Included is an Amsterdam based migrant support organisation for freedom of movement and right to stay for all. We believe in an open society on the basis of exchange and solidarity. We believe in migrant rights and opportunities.
We will not allow the European Union, its member states, Frontex and other institutions to continue to be complicit in the deaths of thousands of people with impunity – both in the Mediterranean and on Europe’s external borders. This also applies to all politicians who consciously or unconciously promote or accept this murderous policy. Migrants are forced to choose most deadly routes through desert and Mediterranian while legal routes stay locked.

That is why we will take the initiative – together with others – to set up a European civil society monitoring body to safeguard human rights. All the more so as the bordering countries are more and more imposed to safeguard European interests through the Emergency Trust Fund. And as the EU recently decided to expand Frontex border patrol force up to 10,000 troops.

We want to create a European documentation centre which will link all the organisations and individuals working in the Mediterranean and at the external borders collecting and analysing their knowledge and experiences. Mutual exchange and networking could be stimulated by all actors with specific background: academic, migrant, NGO’s, human right activist. Many independant researches have recently brought more evidence and insight on a structural EU-abuse of human rights at the borders. By enlarging the visibility of migrant reality, support initiatives and their criminalisation by EU and memeber states we hope to motivate civil actions.

A central task will be to provide the European media with the information obtained.

In a second step, the findings gained in the course of the investigations should lead to those responsible being called to account before a tribunal of civil society to be set up specifically for this purpose.
By building up such a well equipped structure a group of ‘experts’ from diverse background and practice will analyse EU-legislation and testimonies of human right abuse by migrants and support-NGO’s. This tribunal will bring together all actors and come to a verdict in Brussels in 2021.

All Included is een initiatief dat strijdt voor vrijheid van mobiliteit en recht op verblijf voor migranten. In een tijd waarin globalisering een feit is moet migratie erkend worden als een deel van een package deal. All included dus. Dit betekent: geen illegaliteit, geen vreemdelingendetentie en geen gedwongen uitzettingen.
Met het verdwijnen van de nationale grenzen verdwijnt de nationale identiteit. Iedereen wordt wereldburger en ongeacht afkomst verdient eenieder gelijke rechten en gelijke kansen. Daarom ook voor migranten gelijkwaardige ‘all included’ rechten en plichten.
All Included strijdt voor een open samenleving middels buitenparlementaire acties die ingrijpen in het politiek klimaat van assimilatie, geslotenheid en angst. Middels directe hulp aan uitgeprocedeerde asielzoekers en andere mensen zonder verblijfsvergunning worden aanklachten tegen de wantoestanden van de huidige politiek uitgedragen. Wij willen een bijdrage leveren aan het publieke debat met alternatieve visies op migratie en globalisering die uitgaat van open grenzen, solidariteit en eigen initiatief.
All Included is actief in Afrique-Europe Interact (AEI), een netwerk van Afrikaanse en Europese zelf-organisaties. AEI werkt enerzijds aan gezamenlijke projecten en acties en anderzijds aan onderlinge ondersteuning.

Benefit voku for renovations costs of squatted villa Ivicke in Wassenaar

Monday December 2nd 2019, Benefit voku for renovations costs of squatted villa Ivicke in Wassenaar, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

This time we invite you to enjoy a lovely vegan dinner at Joe’s Garage to help us raise money for the costs of renovating the squatted monumental villa in Wassenaar, which we squatted in July 2018.

Up till now, we have funded all of the work we have done to the building ourselves or through donations raised during events at Ivicke. But this was not enough to cover the big job we did in September to winter-proof the house.

We fixed the gutters and roof leaks, which was necessary to prevent further, likely irreversible damage to the house. For this, we had to hire two scaffolds, which cost us over 800 euros alone. On top of this, we also had to buy the necessary materials.

This came at a time when our ability to raise funds through events has been limited by restrictions placed on us by the municipality following the attention we received by hosting the No Border Camp, which is why we are asking for your donations.

Since the very beginning we have done an immense amount of work to fix and maintain the building for living and hosting a variety of social events. Yet we are constantly under the threat of eviction from the municipality and the owner – a well-known speculant Ronnie van de Putte.

Thanks to your donations we can continue our work and put on other events, and counter the agenda of politicians, media and the owner to have us evicted!
